The Harrier is not a new name in the global market, as it has been around since 1997. However, it has never been launched in India before. So, what can we expect from the upcoming Toyota Harrier in terms of interior features, expected launch date and price in India? Let’s find out.

New Toyota Harrier Expected Launch Date in India
The Toyota Harrier is set to be launched in Japan in June 2020, followed by some other Asian and European markets. However, there is no official confirmation from Toyota about its launch in India. According to some reports, the Harrier might be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo in India, followed by a launch in 2021 or 2022. However, this is just speculation and we will have to wait for an official announcement from Toyota.
Price in India
The price of the Toyota Harrier in India will depend on various factors like the level of localization, the engine options, the variants and the features offered. However, based on some estimates, the Harrier might be priced between Rs 14 lakhs to Rs 20 lakhs (ex-showroom). This will make it a competitive offering in the premium SUV segment in India.
The Toyota Harrier is a promising SUV that will offer a blend of style, performance, comfort and safety. It will be a worthy rival to the existing players in the segment and will appeal to those who are looking for a premium and feature-rich SUV from a reputed brand.
