In pics: Toyota digitally launches revived Venza SUV; eerily similar to Harrier
Toyota's revived Venza SUV for American market is perceived as a replica of the Harrier SUV - former's Asian version.What possibly separates the two SUVs mostly is the hybrid all-wheel drive option that US customers will get unlike their Asian counterparts.
Toyota Motor has digitally launched a revived Venza SUV digitally. The SUV is claimed to ‘break the sameness barrier’ but it is eerily similar to another recently launched SUV - Toyota Harrier.
Just like Harrier, Venza gets a front with continuity of lines flowing from the front upper grille through to the headlamps. Similarly, it has a chrome strip integrating the headlights and a strip underlining the grille.
On the sides, the Venza has stooping roofline with chrome outline on the windows which are difficult to separate from Harrier.
The 19-inch alloys on Venza have more similarities than difference with Harrier. However, the wheel arches are less prominent on the Venza SUV.
