2020 Toyota Harrier unveiled as sleeker sibling to RAV4 in Japan

Toyota has revealed its fourth-generation Harrier crossover for the Japanese domestic market, showing what could be possible to fill the gap between the mid-size RAV4 and seven-seat Kluger.

Like all good (and plenty of not-so-good) concept cars, the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED or European Institute of Design) Tracy concept dispenses with the notion of boundaries and limitations imposed by regulations and series production and gives a glimpse of what could be possible...
