2020 Toyota Harrier is maybe the not much-known name on the market, but surely is well known in Asian markets, like in China. As the matter of fact, it is made for them mostly, since they wanted something smaller but attractive to the younger buyers. According to the rumors, it should be as luxury as Lexus LX, but still affordable and small as a mid-size crossover. It is still not known when the model will be on the market, along with much other information, but we are sure that there are many details that we should pay attention to.
- The model should be modernized and better shaped.
- There is a great hybrid engine under the hood.
- The design is still not that attractive as on other models in class.
- The cabin equipment is not very attractive.
At first glance, 2020 Toyota Harrier looks like smaller version of Cadillac Escalade, but more rounded. Making Harrier more aerodynamic and attractive is actually the main change that the manufacturer has made in the past year. That is why our impressions showed that it is more luxury and better-sculpted Infinity QX80. On the other hand, the manufacturer has not uncovered much about this model, so we are still not sure how the main design looks like. However, it is for sure that there will be the famous trapezoidal gridded grille along with the squared LED front lights and wide air intake on the bottom. The rear end is rounded and softer.
It is for sure that the manufacturer will not save money to make as luxury and elegant cabin in 2020 Toyota Harrier as we used to see before. There are so many reasons for that. Other luxury crossovers already attracted attention with their large and comfortable cabins, so this three-row crossover simply has to follow those demands and expectations. Even though the cabin recalls on Mazda CX-5 at first glance, it is even more luxury. There is a new dashboard with obviously improved commands and infotainment system. Maybe the best is the new Toyota’s Safety Sense system, as one of the best on the market. The cabin is comfortable and large for eight passengers.
It is for sure that 2020 Toyota Harrier will come with several different engines in the offer, depending on the market and country where it is offered. Base model should come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 230 horsepower of strength. Toyota is also famous for its hybrid engines, especially in larger SUVs and crossovers, so we expect something attractive this time. It could be a combination of the petrol 154-horsepower petrol engine and two electric motors. Both sides of this engine should produce 210 horsepower of strength. Unfortunately, old buyers, used on the strong V6 engine, will not get this engine version again. The manufacturer has decided to withdraw it for good.
2020 Toyota Harrier Release Date and Price
There are many different rumors about 2020 Toyota Harrier, including the releasing date. According to some sources, it is already prepared for the market and we should expect it later this year. On the other hand, the releasing date could be prolonged for a longer period of time, since nothing actually was confirmed by the manufacturer yet. Whatever happens, we are sure that there is a great new vehicle that will be on the market next year. The price should start at $35,000.
