4th Gen Toyota Harrier Leaked, Visual Comparison to 3rd Gen
A teaser for the all-new 4th generation Toyota Harrier was leaked on the internet a few days ago. It showed multiple angles of the SUV’s exterior.
The new Harrier adopts a similar silhouette to the outgoing model. It also retains design features like a closed-off upper grille trim piece. Besides that, it does look like many of the details have been tweaked.
The 4th generation Toyota Harrier will only be officially revealed in June. Besides the redesign, the new SUV will also be built upon the TNGA-K platform and a new Dynamic Force 2-litre petrol engine.
The current generation Toyota Harrier was first introduced in 2013, with its official introduction into the Malaysian market only coming post-facelift in 2018. You can watch our Sights & Sounds video for that vehicle below.

Here’s some information about the 3rd generation Toyota Harrier
Toyota Motor Corporation will launch the redesigned “Harrier” crossover SUV in Japan on December 2, with a hybrid model scheduled for release on January 15 next year. The new Harrier, with its distinctive design and innovative new features, aims to exceed even the high expectations built up by previous models.
Since its debut in 1997, the Harrier has built a strong brand image while pioneering the high-end crossover SUV genre. Known for its advanced technologies and features, the Harrier was the first vehicle to use Toyota’s proprietary Pre-collision System. In keeping with this legacy, Toyota has made some of its most advanced proprietary safety technologies available on the new Harrier. The cabin is quiet, as befits a high-end vehicle, while enhanced suspension and aerodynamic performance deliver a comfortable ride and superior driving stability. With an elegant, streamlined exterior and an interior that balances fine craftsmanship with modern utility, the Harrier’s styling is innovative and distinctive. The hybrid model, powered by a 2.5-liter engine and hybrid system, retains the characteristic power of an SUV while achieving class-leading environmental performance and fuel efficiency of 21.8 km/L. Developed for the Japanese market, the Harrier will be sold at “Toyota” channel dealers throughout Japan.
