“The all-new Harrier is emotive, expressive and elegant, and will further cement the strong appeal that the model has continued to enjoy in the Malaysian market.” said UMW Toyota Motor President Ravindran K.

The Harrier has risen to become a household name in Malaysia by capturing the essence of a premium urban SUV since it was first introduced in 1997. The fourth generation Harrier launched in Japan in June last year sets out to reinterpret the parameters of premium.

Malaysia is honored to become only one of two countries where the new Harrier is sold officially with full warranty and after sales support. The Harrier comes with a full factory five-year unlimited mileage warranty for absolute peace of mind with comprehensive after-sales support at all authorized Toyota service centres nationwide with ready availability of genuine parts.

The previous Harrier was powered by a turbocharged engine while the new Toyota Harrier is only available with a naturally-aspirated mill. Therefore, the same M20A-FKS 2.0 litre Dynamic Force four-cylinder found in the base of RAV4. It makes 173 PS at 6,600 rpm and 203 Nm of torque from 4,400 to 4,900 rpm, which is some way down the 231 PS and 350 Nm of the outgoing model.

A Direct Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sequential Shiftmatic, allows the seamless shifting of gears, providing three unique driving experiences – ECO, Normal and Sport for more spirited driving. The owners can at least console themselves with the fact that the improvement in efficiency has made up for the shortfall in performance, with fuel consumption rated at 15.3 km per litre. That’s quite a jump over the previous turbo car, which was rated at 13 km per litre.

The Harrier’s signature Fixed Panoramic Sunroof is equipped with electro-chromatic glass, that can be dimmed or darkened at the touch of a button. The Harrier also introduces a Digital Display Rear View Mirror, displaying live images from a wide-angled high-definition camera giving the driver greater night-driving clarity and eliminating glare from oncoming headlights.

Other than that, a 12-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat and a steering column that automatically rises out of the way when getting in and out of the vehicle. While the vehicle Head-Up Display (HUD), wireless charging pad, Automatic Dual-Zone Air Conditioning system with nanoe™X technology, front and rear USB ports are also supported for convenience. 

In the nut shell, the Toyota Harrier is fully imported from Toyota’s Takaoka factory in Japan. The 2.0 Luxury Grade Harrier offers customers a choice of five elegant colours: Steel Blonde Metallic, Slate Grey Metallic, Precious Black, Dark Blue Metallic, and the signature White Pearl Crystal Shine.
The New Toyota Harrier is priced at RM249,706.50, excluding road tax and insurance.
