The first images of the new Toyota Harrier have been released, potentially hinting at the styling of the next-generation Lexus RX.
Due to debut at November’s Tokyo motor show and go on sale exclusively in Japan by the end of 2013, the third-generation Toyota Harrier crossover will feature a hybrid powertrain, with details to be released closer to it unveiling.
While the new Harrier’s glasshouse and roofline remain similar to the current Lexus RX, sharper front and rear ends suggest a more aggressive look for the upcoming fourth-generation Lexus SUV.
The new RX is expected to go on sale in the US in 2014 and locally in 2015, replacing the current-generation car that dates back to 2008.
In Australia the Lexus RX line-up comprises the 138kW/252Nm 2.7-litre four-cylinder RX270, the 204kW/346Nm 3.5-litre V6 RX350 and the 220kW/317Nm 3.5-litre V6 petrol-electric hybrid RX450h.
