The innovative model of Toyota Harrier released in 2013
The 3rd generation Harrier was fully remodeled in December 2013 and had been sold until May 2020. From this model, the design and functionality have evolved significantly (while keeping the tradition) compared to the previous Harrier. In addition, this model was completely separated from Lexus RX and relaunched as a Domestic-only Model.
The exterior has realized a design that symbolizes the new generation Harrier that expresses a new dynamism with a sophisticated impression while inheriting elegant style common to the previous Harrier.
The interior is designed to have the impression of the authenticity of handmade products with modern sophistication. Furthermore, in addition to creating a space that is both spacious and sporty, the front door trim ornament with the Harrier emblem expresses the playfulness and caring about small details.
The 3rd generation Harrier has gained popularity by improving driving performance and safety through one partial improvement and one minor change in the model life of 7 years.
In the full model change, it was equipped with a 151 horsepower 2L in-line 4-cylinder DOHC engine, and the transmission was combined with Super CVT-i(continuously variable transmission). Regarding grades, there are 4 types. 1, the base model "Grand", 2,"Elegance" equipped with fabric(the highest quality)+ synthetic leather seats as standard equipment, 3,"Premium" equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels as standard equipment, and 4,"Premium Advanced Package" with intelligent clearance sonar and pre-crash safety system as standard equipment. They have been set in response to the taste of the user.
In addition, as equipment, high safety and convenience are realized by advanced technology such as a panoramic view monitor with correct left-right orientation and a lane departure alert with steering control. In addition, it achieved quietness suitable for a high-end crossover SUV, such as the effective placement of sound-absorbing and insulating materials, and while ensuring high steering stability by improving aerodynamic performance and suspension. It achieved a high-quality ride.
In the partial improvement in 2015, Harrier's original luxury and sophisticated design "Elegance Gs" were set in the grade lineup to 5 types. Improvements include a panoramic view monitor that adds a see-through view function that displays an image that looks through the vehicle from the driver's seat to the "Premium Advanced Package" and a T-Connect SD navigation system that supports safe and comfortable driving. In addition, safety and advanced equipment have been enhanced, such as expanding the pre-crash safety(option) setting to "Grand". As a special specification car, PREMIUM "Style MAUVE" based around the purple color has been set.
In the minor change in 2017, the 5 types of grade lineup were changed to "Progress", "Premium", "Premium" Metal and Leather Package", "Progress Metal and Leather Package", respectively. Each grade combines a 2L in-line 4-cylinder DOHC gasoline engine with a Super CVT-i.
The exterior became a more dynamic impression with the change in the front face. In addition, the combination lamp was changed to a red luminescent color to realize an iconic design. In terms of safety equipment, it has increased safety and luxury by increasing the number of sensors, installing LED lamps, and setting memory seats.
