The New Toyota Harrier is a mid-size crossover SUV produced in Japan for over 30 years. It has a clean, modern look, powerful performance, and premium features. Foreign markets sold the Harrier as the Lexus RX until 2008, when it became a separate model line. Today, the Harrier is a more road-oriented and expensive RAV4 rival, similar to the Lexus NX.
The current Harrier was introduced in 2013 and refreshed in 2017. It has petrol and hybrid powertrains and shares the RAV4 chassis. A new version of the Harrier will bring major updates and enhancements to the iconic crossover. Predicted Toyota Harrier features are below.

Exterior Looks of New Toyota Harrier
The new Toyota Harrier will have a sleek, aerodynamic appearance that looks upmarket. The front grille will be blackened out with chrome highlights and a Toyota logo in the centre. LED headlights will have sequential turn signals and daytime running lights. Fog lamps and massive air intakes will be on the bumper. Chrome window surrounds and door handles will define the coupe-like side profile. Multi-spoke alloy wheels are planned. LED taillights with light bars will be on the back. Chrome and a spoiler will decorate the tailboard. Dual exhaust tips and reflectors will be on the bumper.
Expected Safety Features
The new Toyota Harrier will be safe for passengers. It will have crumple zones and impact beams for strength. Airbags, seat belts, ABS, EBD, BA, VSC, TRC, HSA, and TPMS will be included. The Harrier’s 360-degree video system will give a bird’s-eye view while parking or doing tight turns.
New Toyota Harrier India launch date and price expected
India should get the New Toyota Harrier by 2023 or 2024. It will be imported from Japan as a CBU, resulting in significant taxes and duties. The Harrier is projected to cost Rs 17.81–24.71 Lakh (ex-showroom) in India. This will make it one of the most costly crossovers in its segment, competing with Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass, Skoda Karoq, Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, Honda CR-V, and MG Hector Plus.
