The Toyota Harrier was launched in the beginning of 2018 and has been met with great demand. So far, UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has delivered more than 500 units of this fully imported SUV to its customers and are making efforts to fulfil the outstanding demand.
UMWT is working closely with Toyota Motor Corporation to increase the supply of the Harrier from the production line in Japan and reduce the waiting time for buyers in Malaysia. “We understand that our customers had to wait for a longer period to get delivery of their vehicle. The global demand for the Harrier has been great right from the start and for Malaysia, it surged further during the three months of tax break. The production in Japan is now able to supply more to suit the demand and we will have more vehicles available for delivery,” said Ravindran K., President of UMW Toyota Motor.
The Harrier is available in two variants – Premium and Luxury, and priced from RM243,000 (for Peninsular Malaysia registration, without insurance). Both variants use the latest generation 2-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine with twin scroll turbocharger, D-4ST direct fuel-injection and VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide) for high output and high fuel efficiency.
And available in a Toyota model in Malaysia for the first time is the Toyota Safety Sense Package, which is a comprehensive suite of Active Safety systems. This includes the Pre-Crash System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping System, Lane Departure Alert and Adaptive High-Beam System.
Other safety systems included are Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), Emergency Stop Signal, Electronic Parking Brake + Auto Brake Hold, and Parking Sensors with a Reverse Camera.
Most importantly, the Harrier sold officially by UMWT comes with 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage so you have peace of mind in terms of service and spare parts available from all authorised Toyota dealerships throughout Malaysia.
Toyota is currently running the ‘All About the Drive Bonanza’ promotion until end of the year. Those who book a new Harrier stand a chance to win a holiday package and will also be eligible to win a brand new Toyota Sienta compact MPV. More details are available at www.toyota.com.my.
