The latests Harrier sports a more chiselled front end, side profiles that are an equivalent of being athletically-well toned, and a sloping rear end that presents a coupe styling.

Larger than its predecessor, and with a lower and more pronounced stance, the all-new Harrier presents an even more dynamic and expressive exterior silhouette in line with its "Dignified Elegance" concept.

The latest Harrier is powered by Toyota’s latest Dynamic Force (M20A-FKS) 2-litre 4-clinder DOHC engine with Dual VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence) that operates electronically for quicker response. The engine produces 171hp at 6,600rpm and peak torque of 203Nm from 4,400rpm-4,900rpm.

It is the most advanced version of the system developed by Toyota engineers since it was introduced 30 years ago.

A Direct Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sequential Shiftmatic, allows the seamless shifting of gears, providing three drive modes – ECO, Normal and Sport.

Optimised front and rear suspension geometry meanwhile, complements the Harrier’s rigid structure making it well-balanced, reassuring, predictable, yet still capable of graceful pace.

Built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-K platform, the Harrier is engineered with a highly rigid body structure with a lower center of gravity in pursuit of ride comfort, agility and greater vehicle driving performance.

Features have been stepped up in the all-new Harrier which boasts an extensive suite of safety and security equipment via Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) technologies.

The Harrier’s more pronounced front end is defined by new Bi-LED headlamps with long slits that give it a sharp yet wide impression.

Its L-shaped Daytime Running Lights provide a strong and distinctive visual signature apart from enhancing daytime visibility.
