RM 249k 2021 Toyota Harrier vs RM 236k Lexus UX: Why Toyota when you can Lexus?

Perhaps the biggest news surrounding the launch of the 2021 Toyota Harrier is the demise of the 8AR-FTS turbocharged power unit. One way or another, some will moan about this, but there are solid reasons why Toyota did this. At RM 249k, the Toyota Harrier asks quite a sizeable chunk of your hard-earned money. Interestingly, the Lexus UX occupies a similar price range to the Harrier (RM 236k - 290k). Will this cause some sort of cannibalisation within the brands? Let's delve further and have a lo

RM 249k 2021 Toyota Harrier vs RM 236k Lexus UX:能买Lexus,为什么要买Toyota?

随着2021 Toyota Harrier的推出,最大的新闻或许就是8AR-FTS涡轮增压引擎的缺席了。无论如何,总会有一些人抱怨,但Toyota这样做十分合理的理由的。 Toyota Harrier要价RM 249k,不可谓昂贵。但有趣的是,Harrier与Lexus UX的价格十分相近(RM 236k - 290k)。这是否会造成品牌内部的重叠竞争?让我们深入了解,一探究竟。 价格对比(减免SST的落地价格,不包含保险费用) 车型 & 版本 价格(RM) Toyota Harrier 2.0 Luxury 249,706 Lexus UX200 Urban 236,443 Lexus UX200 Luxury 274,998 Lexus UX200 F Sport 290,335 尺寸对比 数据对比之下,Harrier的尺寸其实更大,因为它采用了TNGA-K平台上。反之,UX使用的则是更小的TNGA-C平台(Lexus只称其为GA-C)。 在进入车内后,这一差别十分明显。Harrier的空间更宽裕、更通透,而UX的车内空间仍然是一个明显的弱点。 尺寸对比 Toyota Harrie

Toyota Harrier, premium Toyota without the Lexus badge

(2019 Toyota Harrier Price & Specs | Gallery) The Toyota Harrier is a well-known name amongst Malaysians, as the model has long established itself as a premium crossover with solid Japanese reliability. But despite its long history in Malaysia, the model was never offered as an official Toyota product in Malaysia – instead it was sold by recon dealers. That soon changed with the third-generation model, as Toyota Malaysia finally realized the popularity of the Harrier in Malaysia, and brought the

Toyota Harrier will fail in Malaysia? It just hit its 2021 sales target in 1 week

Once again, we are reminded that if you want to learn what is actually happening in the car market, you have to get off Facebook, and start talking to people who are actually buying / selling cars. We’ve just learned from Toyota dealers that UMW Toyota Motor has sold out their entire year’s planned allocation for the 2021 Toyota Harrier in less than 1 week after its launch. The number of orders collected is a big slap in the face of the negativities on Facebook surrounding the RM 249,706 Toyota

The Toyota Harrier is a premium, D-segment SUV, sitting one segment above the Toyota RAV4. It also forms the basis for the Lexus NX. The current generation Toyota Harrier is no longer related to the Lexus RX. Up until now, the Harrier exists only as a right-hand drive model.

Merely 2 days after the all-new 2021 Toyota Harrier was spied at a storage location, the all-new SUV has now been unmasked. Courtesy of Instagram user @summit3837, we now have a decent look at Toyota’s upmarket SUV. Unlike the rugged-looking Toyota RAV4, the all-new Harrier takes a sleeker approach – the front end may look similar to the outgoing model, but it does get a new pair of headlights. Towards the sides, the all-new Harrier gets the signature side profile that was first introduced on th

No more 231 PS turbocharged engine for all-new 2021 Toyota Harrier, this is why

The previous generation XU60 Toyota Harrier was quite a car. The 2.0-litre VVT-iW 8AR-FTS turbocharged 231 PS / 350 Nm was the best turbocharged 4-cylinder engine on the market, until it was pulled off the showroom floor. Among all force-induction four bangers, the 8AR-FTS revved and pulled most like a naturally-aspirated engine. Dynamically, it was superior to the entry Mercedes-Benz GLC 200. It’s not that the GLC is bad, but if you are shopping for one, stick only to the GLC 250 (re-designated

Ahead of its imminent launch (you can register your interest as well), we managed to get our hands on a Malaysian-spec leaflet for the 2021 Toyota Harrier. As we previously feared, yes it will no longer be powered by the 8AR-FTS turbocharged 2.0-litre. Will we miss it? Time will tell. In its place is Toyota's Dynamic Force 2.0-litre naturally aspirated 4 pot (173 PS, 203 Nm) which is paired to a Direct Shift CVT transmission. Basically, this powertrain combo is identical to the one pulling duty

Next-gen 2022 Lexus NX spied doing development testing in Japan!

The current Lexus NX was groundbreaking in many ways. It was the first Lexus that had a turbocharged heart, and Lexus' first foray into the luxury compact SUV (before things got even more compact with the UX). However, it's been around since 2015, and is getting long in the tooth. The good news is, an all-new Lexus NX has been spied doing development testing. According to a source, the development mule was spotted in a car park in Shizuoka City, Japan. Does this mean an imminent announcement is

Toyota Harrier会在大马失败?它在一周内就达成了一年的销量目标!

我们再次提醒大家,如果你想了解汽车市场的实际情况,Facebook是一个十分不可靠的消息来源。相反,你应该和真正买车/卖车的人了解情况。我们刚刚从Toyota经销商处了解到,UMW Toyota Motor在2021 Toyota Harrier上市后不到1周的时间里,就已经将他们全年的计划配额销售一空。 这样的销量,对于在Facebook上对售价RM 249,706的Toyota Harrier的各种差评,无疑是一次狠狠的打脸。 推荐阅读: 2021 Toyota Harrier在大马上市,标价RM 249k起跳,配备自然进气引擎、TSS和TNGA 据WapCar.my采访的经销商透露,2021年分配给马来西亚的300辆车,已经在不到一周的时间里已经全部售罄。截至今天,收到的总预定数量已经远远超过了300辆。 值得庆幸的是,Toyota Harrier没有进口限制,因此可以追加订单,新的一批车辆将在时机合适的时候从日本进口。 这和Toyota Corolla Cross的情况有些不同(从泰国进口的750辆已经全部售罄,但仍然接受本地组装车型的订单),因为考虑到UMW Toyota M

谍照爆料:全新款2021 Toyota Harrier登陆大马,上市在即

在日本上市9个月后,全新的Toyota Harrier终于来到了马来西亚。这张照片是由我们的读者VT分享的,他发现了一辆拖车,上面有6辆经过简单伪装的SUV。从C柱和轮廓上可以清楚地看出,它就是采用了TNGA-K平台的2021 Toyota Harrier。 最新一代的Harrier将放弃上一代车型的2.0升涡轮增压4缸8AR-FTS VVT-iW引擎,改用2.0升Dynamic Force M20A-FKS自然进气4缸引擎(172 PS / 203 Nm)。 此外,还有一款2.5升的混动车型,搭载的则是同样的A25A-FXS引擎(218 PS)。两具引擎均匹配CVT自排变速箱,但混动版的变速箱为行星齿轮组e-CVT。 推荐阅读:All-new 2021 Toyota Harrier launching in Malaysia next year, this or the RAV4? 由于日本现在已经对所有汽车制造商实施了全车系的平均CO2排放限制,因此有必要放弃涡轮增压发动机,改用混合动力和自然进气引擎。 而马来西亚作为一个小市场,只能是日本有什么我们就接受什么了。 与上一代Harr

新款2021 Toyota Harrier不再使用涡轮增压,原因何在?

上一代XU60 Toyota Harrier的表现相当出色。2.0升VVT-iW 8AR-FTS涡轮增压引擎(231 PS / 350 Nm)一度是市场上最好的涡轮增压四缸引擎,直到它被新一代车型所抛弃。 在所有的强制进气四缸引擎中,8AR-FTS的转速和输出特性是最像自然进气引擎的。 在动力上,它要比入门级的Mercedes-Benz GLC 200还更胜一筹。并不是说GLC不好,但如果你要选购的话,请尽量选择GLC 250(改款车型为300)。 即使是在二手车市场上,XU60 Harrier也依然保持着很高的价格,因为与早期车型不同,XU60也是由UMW Toyota Motor销售的,这意味着售后服务是有保障的。 全新款的XU80 Harrier需要达到很高的标准,它能做到吗?这款车型几日前刚刚上市,并且只提供一款2.0升自然进气车型,售价为RM 249,706(截至2021年6月30日),从日本整车进口(CBU)。 相比之下,上一代XU60 Harrier Turbo是在2017年推出的,Premium车型的售价为RM 238,000,Luxury车型的售价为RM 259,90
