The main issue with the Toyota harrier 2014 is the body to engine ratio with 3439lbs against a 2000cc engine meaning it's underpowered. This makes the 2014 harrier sluggish in terms of performance and off-road capabilities compared to the 2400cc 2008 model and other competitors such as the Mazda CX-5, the nissan X-trail and the Toyota Rav 4.

The ground clearance on the body kitted 2014 harrier, which comes as an option, makes it unfavorable for off-road environments due to the compromised ground clearance. This also increases the risk of damaging the front bumper on a curb while parking.

Being one of the most attractive in its class ,the 2014 Toyota harrier starts at a price of KSH 3.2 million and can go even higher depending on certain specifications such as interior options, hybrid option and little bits and trims.
