When it hit Malaysia in April 2021, the fully-imported (CBU Japan) Toyota Harrier (XU80) was a model that hardly got time to warm any showroom floors: UMW Toyota Motor sold out their entire allocation for the year in just a week.

It's hardly surprising news, once you've actually seen one up close or get behind the wheel of one. Priced from RM 249,706 (inclusive SST discount, valid until 30-June 2022), buyers get a well-specced car that is beautiful inside and out.

It's also lost its turbo, and does that also mean it's got even less going for it?
