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

Is the Toyota Avanza a Toyota or a Daihatsu?

We all know the Toyota Avanza. The strangely proportioned 7-seater MPV that has the ground clearance of an SUV. While opinions are split between the car’s look, there was no denying that it was a helpful workhorse whether you’re ferrying workers or family around. Those on the elderly side also love the height clearance as it means easier ingress and egress! If you’re a very observant person, you would notice that according to the Avanza’s VIN plate, the car is made in Indonesia by PT. Astra Daih

Malaysia akan lancar model Toyota baru nanti – Toyota GR Yaris 2021 atau Toyota Vios GR Sport, mungkin?

UMW Toyota akan melancarkan satu model baru pada 17 Disember. Sudah menjadi kebiasaan promo acah pada fasa awalnya, maklumat terperinci belum didedahkan. Tapi, cara dan intonasi iklannya berbunyi agak ‘hip’, ditujukan kepada orang muda dengan gaya. Oleh itu, kita dah boleh jangkakan yang ia barangkali bukannya Toyota Fortuner mahupun Toyota Innova, walaupun kedua-dua model ini sudah patut menerima kemaskini, meniru penambahbaikan yang baru seperti Toyota Hilux yang berkongsi platform IMV.

So we can safely rule out cars like the Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Innova, both of which are also due for an update, following a similar refresh for the shared IMV-platform Toyota Hilux. Could it be the new updated Toyota Vios and Toyota Yaris then? Bookings are opened for both models, both are yet to be launched. The Vios-Yaris t
