i went to test drive on sat, sharing my views below

 

Likes

- exterior design

- size of car, notable presence on the road

- sound proofing

- boot size is huge 

- space for rear seat passengers is huge

- front sequential turn signals looks cool; would really loveit if they used sequential for back and side signals as well

- sunroof

 

Dislikes

- touchscreen on dashboard is pathetically small. those in japan seem much bigger (

)

- from the boot, there is no lever/button for making the rear seats lie flat

- no safety options: blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic monitoring, tyre deflation monitoring

- they removed the panoramic view monitor, which i think is available in the japanese brochures

- lag before turbo engine kicks in

 

 

 

Some excellent reviews here from Richard too:

Keep it civil and if anyone has vested interests and CANNOT AGREE TO DISAGREE, do your due diligence and post else where.

 

 

Thank you

Toyota Harrier Hybrid

etc

 

Then no misunderstanding.  [:)]

I can say for certainty that most of us are not anti-Harrier. There are no logical reasons to be when it is non of our business and we are not the ones paying for it. Who has the money, who can choose to buy whatever they like.

 

I am not anti-Harrier, just anti-Bullcrap. Frankly, Harrier is a real decent car (with it's own set of pros and cons)  and the Turbo one with the BM pricing really makes it quite an attractive preposition in the segment.

 

I only make it my business when some people try to stuff bull-crap down our throat like we were born yesterday ... try to push their thinly veiled agenda around the forum and when challenged, with no decent intellectual rebuttal at hand, start to tell people to go back to school as if they had a lot of schooling done themselves.

 

This is all I have to say with regards to the fiasco in the previously closed thread. As I promised, I will move along.

IMO, harrier TC at 150k is a good buy over the NA harrier which the PI are bringing in..

 

but at 150k, there are a lot more options for a 2L TC....(eg S60 t5, q50, mondeo wagon..)

I have to agree with this. Prices are very competitive over a wide range of cars with different segments.

Take the Q50 for example, they priced it at $149k (seen on ads and newspapers) , that interior is a better built than harrier & that engine is from a Mercedes E-class (Not the entry level engine of the E-class)

But yeah, different segments but still a 2L Turbo.

But definely the Q50 maintenance will be higher than Harrier Turbo. Apart from the new harrier Turbo engine that's is a beast , to be honest , the interior is quite outdated for 2017. Been almost 4 years since that interior existed. I kinda expect more from the harrier interior, considering the 2017 Camry's interior is a quite another step forward.

If Harrier uses 1.2T, i think it will sell better than cup cake.
