Toyota Harrier has been one of the most popular crossovers, especially in the Japanese market. According to the information our team has recently got, this well-known SUV has been on its way to present the 2020 Toyota Harrier model. Besides its regular version, the fans should be looking forward to its hybrid model as well.
When it comes to exterior of the 2020 Toyota Harrier, this model is going to hit the roads as a four-door midsize crossover that will be more modern and attractive than its predecessor. Although the current details have been mostly based on rumors and predictions, its exterior design can be pretty much guessed. Namely, no major changes in terms of look should be expected, but some slightly refreshed features and visual updates could be still seen. For instance, the upcoming Harrier might also get a brand-new platform, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet. The other possible change includes its dimensions so the new Harrier might appear smaller than, for example, its popular cousin RAV4. Speaking of cousins, the new Harrier might also be largely compared to the well-known Highlander in terms of styling. Also, some of its features resemble the popular Lexus models so you can expect a touch of luxury as well. While the front fascia could seem a bit aggressive with its distinctive grille and large LED headlights, the rear part will show some softer and refined design. The profile side shows a sloping roofline and probably 18-inch aluminum wheels.
The interior of the 2020 Toyota Harrier should provide three rows of comfortable seats, but due to those smaller dimensions, the passengers might face some space issues inside this crossover. This would especially be the case with the rear seats. Besides that, the carmaker should really improve the overall comfort and materials used to cover the seats and other parts of the cabin. The driver should expect a smaller information display and an 8.0-inch infotainment touch-screen with dual-zone climate control, navigation system, sound system and various types of phone connectivity. The new Harrier should also come with standard Safety Sense Package that would include adaptive cruise control, airbags, parking sensors, a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking and others.
Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, the 2020 Toyota Harrier might use more than one engine choice under the hood, including a hybrid version. It could probably be a 2.0 or a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, but no V6 options should be expected. When it comes to hybrid model, the Harrier would probably combine its gasoline engine with two electric motors that together hit up to 210 horsepower. However, we are waiting for more official numbers and details at the moment.
