Ever since the concept of the new Toyota Harrier Hybrid made its official debut at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Show, the fans have been anticipating the redesigned version of this model. According to the information we have got recently, it seems that one of the most popular SUVs in the market is ready to appear as a 2019 Toyota Harrier Hybrid model with lots of improvements, including its hybrid engine.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Harrier Hybrid, this model is going to appear as a four-door crossover that will be smaller than its predecessor. Such dimensions might lead to less space inside its cabin, but you shouldn’t be worried. On the other hand, the new Harrier Hybrid will be more modern and attractive than the previous model, especially to its younger buyers. Its body will at the same time perfectly combine an aggressive styling with some soft and refined lines and edges. The front fascia of the Harrier Hybrid will proudly wear its redesigned grille as well as its LED headlamps with the daytime running lights. The profile side of this crossover will show its sloping roof. The rear part of the vehicle will be softer and more rounded. Here, on the top of the rear window, the fans will have the chance to see its thin spoiler. This SUV will also get thin LED taillights.
As we have already mentioned, the 2019 Toyota Harrier Hybrid will appear smaller in size, which will affect the interior space. However, the fans shouldn’t be worried because the cabin will be comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate up to five adult passengers. The carmaker should use leather and other high-quality materials, especially in higher trim levels. Other updates can be noticed in terms of technology. The driver will get an 8.0-inch touch-screen center console with the latest infotainment system and features such as navigation system, dual-zone climate control and sound system. When it comes to safety, the new Harrier Hybrid will include standard adaptive cruise control, airbags, automatic brakes, a rearview camera, parking sensors and others.
The 2019 Toyota Harrier Hybrid will offer an improved hybrid system under its hood that will probably combine a 2.5-liter gas engine and an electric motor. The expected output that this combination will provide is 197 horsepower. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, but a rumor has it that Toyota might introduce an optional eight or ten-speed as well.
