Large and luxury RAV4 new Toyota Harrier officially presented

The suspension geometry is optimized to achieve balance between comfort and sharpness of reactions, revised characteristics of the shock absorbers and the stiffness of the connections.

In addition, in the list of equipment Harrier appeared system Active Cornering Assist, which helps to minimize understeer due to a short brake “pulses” and taxiings.

Together with “truck” Toyota Harrier changed range of engines. Now these are the same units that offer Japanese RAV4: aspirated 2.0 (171 power) with a variable speed gearbox Direct Shift-CVT and hybrid power installation on the basis of THS II motor 2.5 (the total output of 218 or 222 of the force). Any of the units combined with front-or all-wheel drive (in the case of a hybrid the rear wheel spins a separate electric motor).
