According to the information our team has got, one of the most popular crossovers in the market has been on its way to hit the market as a 2020 model. Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, the new 2020 Toyota Harrier Hybrid should show some minor updates and refreshments as well as its improved hybrid system under the hood.
SUVs and trucks has always been the most popular among the US buyers. Ever since the concept of Toyota Harrier Hybrid SUV has been revealed at the Tokyo Auto Show, the fans have been more than impatient to see what the Japanese carmaker will prepare for their new eco-friendly model. When it comes to exterior design, the new Harrier Hybrid is going to make its appearance as a mid-size four-door crossover. A rumor has it that the first change you will notice includes its smaller dimensions, which might cause some space issues for your passengers and the cargo. Namely, it will be smaller than its relative, the popular RAV4. Besides that, no major changes should be seen, but this SUV will definitely appear more attractive and modern. You will probably find a redesigned chrome grille and its LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights in the front fascia. Looking at the side profile, the new Harrier Hybrid will show sloping roofline and 18-inch aluminum wheel. In the back, its thin and modern taillights will also use the latest LED technology.
The interior of the 2020 Toyota Harrier Hybrid will provide a comfortable and improved cabin with two rows of seats. However, due to those smaller dimensions we have already mentioned, the rear seat passengers might face some space issues. Be that as it may, the Japanese carmaker will tend to enhance the overall comfort and upgrade its technology. Besides a smaller color information display that a driver will get in the instrument cluster, you will also find an 8.0-inch infotainment touch-screen with some of those latest high-tech features and connectivity options. When it comes to safety, some of the advanced safety systems the new Harrier Hybrid will include are adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, airbags, parking sensors and automatic emergency braking.
Under the hood, the 2020 Toyota Harrier Hybrid will use a combination of a 2.5-liter engine and one or two electric motors. The output is expected to be around 192 horsepower, but we are still waiting for numbers and official details at the moment. The SUV should be paired with either a six-speed automatic or a CVT, but this hasn’t been confirmed as well.
