2022 Toyota Harrier Luxury SE – red metallic exterior, brown interior, updated Toyota Safety Sense, RM274k – paultan.org

UMW Toyota Motor has added a new variant to the current Toyota Harrier lineup – the Harrier Luxury SE (for special edition) – starting from RM277k on-the-road without insurance. Alongside the new Harrier Luxury SE variant, UMW has also revealed the updated Harrier 2.0 Luxury Improvement (IMP), starting from RM274k. The 2.0 litre Harrier Luxury was introduced in Malaysia in February 2021. Following the end of SST exemptions beginning in July 1, the Harrier was priced at RM259k.

The standout feature of the Harrier Luxury SE is its red metallic exterior colour, with a new brown interior. Both are available exclusively in the Luxury SE variant. Inside, the door panels are now wrapped with black leather and finished with brown trims. The same colour combination is also applied to the seats, with a combination of black leather upholstery and brown stitching.

The new Harrier Luxury SE alongside the Harrier Luxury IMP comes with an updated Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance system featuring pre-collision braking, dynamic radar cruise control and lane departure alert. This adds to the existing lane centring assist, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, adaptive high beam and seven airbags.

In terms of powertrain, the fourth generation Harrier soldiers on with the same M20A-FKS 2.0 litre Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine with 173 PS at 6,600 rpm and 203 Nm of torque from 4,400 to 4,900 rpm. The same engine is found in the Toyota RAV4. The 2.0 litre Dynamic Force engine is paired with a Direct Shift-CVT gearbox to drive the front wheels. The Harrier gets from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds, with a top speed of 190 km/h. Its fuel consumption is rated at 15.3 km/L (or 6.5L/100km).

Standard features include bi-LED projector headlamps, front and rear LED fog lamps, a handsfree powered tailgate, a panoramic moonroof, an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, six speakers and a seven-inch coloured TFT instrument cluster display. Also in the cabin are features such as wireless charging, five USB-C ports, a head-up display, a front and rear digital video recorder (DVR) and a digital rear-view mirror.

Ravindran K., president of UMW Toyota Motor said, “We are humbled by the positive support from our customers and are even more committed to going the ‘Extra Mile’ to intensify production and ensure timely delivery to new car owners. We are delighted to showcase the new improvements made to the 2022 Toyota Harrier 2.0L Luxury Improvement (IMP) and hope this update will give drivers an exceptional experience every time they get behind the wheel because it’s all about the drive.”
