In this article, we will introduce the differences between the exterior of the new model of Harrier, which was newly launched in Japan in June 2020 and the old model!
Mainly this time we will introduce the following exterior parts!
Some of the new Harrier’s exterior designs have been redesigned, and many designs have been inherited from the predecessor, the 3rd generation of Harrier.
Until the 3rd generation Harrier, the design was based on a design-conscious SUV instead of a square-based styling SUV that emphasized practicality.
The characteristic of the new Harrier was that it was deeply influenced by a form like a Coupe SUV.
The entire exterior of the new Harrier features a sleek coupe form that has a simple elegance with robustness.
From here, we will introduce the changes in the exterior of the new Harrier, which has evolved into a more elegant and sleek design compared to the third generation.

The body size of the 3rd Harrier had total length of 4720 mm ×total width of 1835 mm × total height of 1690 mm, but the new 4th generation Harrier has total length of 4740 mm× total width of 1855 mm × total height of 1660 mm.
Compared to the third-generation Harrier, the overall length and width have increased by 20 mm, while the overall height has decreased by 30 mm. The body size of new Harrier is similar to that of the second-generation Harrier.
The car width became 20 mm wider and has a distinctive characteristic of left and right overhang. Compared to the third generation, it has a low center of gravity.
The wheelbase was 2660 mm for the third generation, but the new Harrier has 2690 mm which is 30 mm longer.

GA-K platform is equipped to the new Harrier.
The platform of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) can accommodate side-size FF power trains and is also used by RAV4, Camry, Lexus ES, and others.
The size of the wheelbase of the new Harrier is the same as the RAV4, which is 2690 mm, so it can be assumed that both have the same basic mechanism.
Compared to the third generation, the new Harrier’s side windows have a lower ceiling height, and the backward tilting roof has the impression that D pillars and tail windows have a gentler slope when viewed from the side.
The continuous design that flows from the front grille to the headlamp has been inherited from the third-generation design.
By narrowing the width of the headlamps, the front view has a significant sharper impression.
The L-shaped double daytime running lamp is a significant characteristic, and it has a compact yet powerful design.

Up to the 3rd generation, the front grill used an emblem with the motif of an Eastern marsh harrier (family Accipitridae), but it has been changed to the Toyota emblem from the new Harrier.

Side mirrors were attached to A-pillar in the third-generation, but the new Harrier uses door side mirrors.
This eliminates the blind spots that are created at the connecting part between the side mirror and the pillar.
The old model of Harrier
Since it has a 20 mm wider car width, the wheelhouse has a prominent overhanging in left and right, resulting in a sportier design with a low center of gravity compared to the third-generation model.
The inside of the cabin is narrowed toward the rear, and the overhang of the shoulder part is remarkable.
The design of the tail lamp is horizontally linearly set that has been passed down from the third generation. It has a sharper impression due to the thinner and more horizontal design.
In addition, the stop lamp in the upper rear was extended to the left and right. The length became twice as long as the previous model, and horizontal features are emphasized in the design.
From the third generation, not only the tail lamp design but also the cabin narrowed from the side to the rear while narrowing the height and width of the side glass were inherited.
The sleek and elegant coupe form is further refined, the dynamic three-dimensional effect was adapted to create a strong dynamic feeling.

TOYOTA Harrier, which was released in 1997, was created by a combination of a luxury saloon and SUV with the slogan of “WILD but FORMAL”.
As the Harrier brand image of “luxury”, “advanced”, and “refined”, the high-quality design of the exterior and interior of TOYOTA Harrier is remarkable regardless of generation.
It lives up to all the rave reviews it got as a “Sport Utility Saloon” that combines the functionality and mobility of a high-class sedan. As for the engine, it has a 3LV6 or 2.2L straight 4, etc. which are the common platforms of the sedan and CAMRY.
By setting the drive system to 4WD and FF, it is targeting a customer segment who wants to have a “smooth and powerful drive as well as a design with an air of luxury.
So far, we have introduced the functions suitable for the TOYOTA Harrier brand image such as “luxury”, “advanced”, and “refined”.

However, if you want to buy Harrier in the future, you may want to know the feedback of the users who have been driving Harrier?
” How comfortable is Harrier?”
“What is the vibration caused by the travel of Harrier?”
” How is the suspension at the rear seat?”
” What is the real driving performance of Harrier?”
Interviewing Users! Introducing the ride comfort of TOYOTA Harrier!
In response to the questions, we would like to introduce the feedback of users who are driving the second and third generation TOYOTA Harrier.
Model codes such as ACU30W, ACU35W, MCU30W, MCU35W, MHU38W, GSU30W, and GSU35W are classified with the second generation Harrier. ZSU60W, ZSU65W, ASU60W, and ASU65W are categorized as the third generation Harrier.
The most important thing to ask when buying Harrier is the feedback of users who are driving Harrier.
Isn’t it important to find out the ride quality?
From here, we will introduce the feedback of users who are driving Harrier.
“Since there was little swaying while driving, and there was also an air conditioner blowing port in the back seat, the baby can be placed comfortably”
A major feature of the second-generation TOYOTA Harrier was the launch of the hybrid TOYOTA Harrier in 2005, in which a motor was added to the 3.3-liter V-type 6-cylinder engine. It achieved the smoothest driving performance ever.
The third-generation Harrier’s hybrid engine is a combination of a 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder DOCH engine and a motor, and thanks to the powerful assistance of the motor, it achieves a powerful driving while at the same time you can experience a smooth driving as if you are in a big ship.
“I like the design of the car itself and the rear seat having a wide space. It’s also useful because I can easily put golf bags.”
The luggage space of TOYOTA Harrier was originally a pioneer model of the premium SUV, which is a global trend. It secures a spacious luggage space while ensuring comfortable habitability.
When the rear seats are all folded down and used, it can hold 992L, and when the rear seats are used, it can hold 456L.
This is more than RAV4’s luggage capacity (580L), which is the same as full-scale mid-sized SUVs in TOYOTA Harrier.
“When a friend with a height of 162 cm rides on the backseat, there is enough space equal to the length of about one and a half fists, so it is very spacious. It is popular not only for drivers but also for those who go for a drive with me.”
The rear seat of the third-generation TOYOTA Harrier is large, and the seating surface extends to the back of the knee. It helps drivers keep their posture right without strain on their back and reduces their fatigue after a long drive.
Since the rear seats are set in a high seating position, it has good front visibility, which is one of the features of TOYOTA Harrier.
Thanks to its high visibility, it rarely gives a sense of blockage when you are in a car.
TOYOTA Harrier also has a sufficient overhead space, so you can secure a spacious seating space.
“I used to drive the same second-generation TOYOTA Harrier’s 2.4GLP 4WD, but I wanted to have a more comfortable car, so I replaced it by 3.5AIRS 4WD. It was a great choice! I can experience smooth driving, and the acceleration performance is the same as the hybrid.”
In the highest grade of the second-generation TOYOTA Harrier, there is a model with the same strut-type electronically controlled air suspension adopted in AIRS.
By installing AIRS air suspension, it can make quick motions in consecutive corners on the left and right.
In addition, 3.5V6 2GR-FE engine has superior properties in silence and full torque, so it allows a car to ride and go with the flow of traffic at 2,000 rpm or less.
If you want to buy TOYOTA Harrier in the future, you may want to use the feedback of the users who have been driving Harrier as a reference.
You can find out about the “luxury”, “advanced”, and “refined” designs and equipment on TOYOTA’s official website, but it is difficult to hear the feedback of the drivers.
This time, we introduced its riding comfort from the feedback of users who have been driving TOYOTA Harrier.

There are the first, second, and third generations of Harrier, and the fourth generation Harrier launched in June 2020 has many similarities of these previous generations.
This time, we are going to introduce characteristics of the first, second, and third generations of TOYOTA Harrier!
The first generation Harrier was released in 1997 from Toyota about to become a pioneer of luxury SUV car.
TOYOTA Harrier has been gathering attention from the automobile industry in the world since it used leather as seating materials that were not seen in the previous SUV. The interior is very stylish and creative.
It has had greater support not only from Japan but also overseas, and the demand for used Harrier has increased now.
If you are planning to purchase a used Harrier, you might have questions such as, “what are the main differences between the first, second, and third generations Harrier?” and “what are the characteristics of each?”. We will explain the features of each generation of Harrier from now on.
Please also check out our useful article about “the best way to buy Harrier cheaply” !
You can find out the content that you would like to check from the caption, so please click the section to get the information.
These three points below are the characteristics of the first generation Harrier
The satisfaction rate of users of the first generation Harrier was very high, and it was popular for its reliability.
From here, we are going to introduce the characteristics and merits and demerits of the first generation of Harrier.
The first generation Harrier was created based on the platform of sixth generation CAMRY, but at the very beginning, the platform of ARISTO was planned to be used as a base of the design.
As for another design plan, there was an American plan which later was discussed between the Japanese plan. The wheelbase was enlarged, and it had a strong and dynamic image. And at the last, the stylish Japanese plan was adapted.
The characteristics of the design of first generation Harrier was that there are no spare tires attached to the rear hatch.
It was very common to have spare tires attached to the rear hatch. However, in SUV cars, the spare tires were set in the under the luggage floor in the first generation Harrier, it manages to create a stylish form.
The engine mounted on the first generation Harrier at the time of launch was V-shaped 6 cylinder 3.0L engine with 220 horsepower, which was the same as “Harrier 3.0”.
The model with in-line 4 cylinder 2.2L high mechanical TWIN CAM is called “Harrier”. The name differs according to the grade.
A minor change was conducted to change from 2.2L to 2.4L of in-line 4-cylinder engine, and the valve timing mechanism” VVT-I” was adapted which can be changed together with Harrier 3.0.
FF and 4WD models were set as a drive system, and “FOUR” is added after the grade name of 4WD model.
The first generation Harrier which was released in 1997 attracted attention by adapting the “Pre-Crash Safety System” for the first time in the world.
Moreover, as standard safety equipment, it has a dual airbag, brake assist, ABS, seatbelt with pre-tensioner & force limiter are mounted.
It has four-wheel independent suspension so that it can have a great driving performance on various roads. The first generation Harrier has a high reputation of being “a car with a comfortable ride” that a driver can experience smooth driving and a high degree of silence while driving.
Also, the fast response has received a high evaluation. Since the steering is heavy, the suspension has a smooth motion even on rough roads.
There was some feedback from drivers. Because the shift lever was set in a slightly high position, it was a bit difficult to operate the shift. However, the issue was fixed in the second generation Harrier, and the shift lever was set in a lower position.
There are also some comments that the position of side mirrors was set under the framework of windows which caused some difficulties for a driver to check. In the second generation Harrier, side mirrors were put on the side of the window framework to have better visibility.
There are three main characteristics of the second generation Harrier
The second generation Harrier also has a high reputation like the first generation, but unfortunately, it was discontinued in 2013.
This generation is popular among Carused.jp because of its low cost and high performance.
From here, we will introduce the characteristics of the second generation Harrier.
The interior of the second generation Harrier was designed with the concept of “sharpness of birds of prey”. It has the navigation screen at the high position, the wind outlet at the side of the air conditioner, and the inner shift panel that were also in the first generation.
Mechanical silver in the center part and wood patterns on steering are significant features of the interior of the second generation Harrier.
In the interior of the second generation Harrier, Trinocular independent metering became standard equipment that can be found only in the second generation Harrier.
Compared to the first generation Harrier, the exterior is slightly bigger with the size as follows: total length 4,735mm × total width 1,845mm × total height 1,670mm
The engines mounted on the second generation Harrier were 3LV type 6-cylinder engine and 2.4L in-line 4-cylinder engine. They were passed down from the first generation.
The drive system was FF and 4WD which is the same as the first generation, and the transmission was changed from 5 speed AT from 3LV type 6-cylinder engine. The 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine was changed to 4-speed AT.
In the highest grade, it has electronic control of air suspension system “AIRS”.
”Harrier hybrid” was released in the second generation Harrier which was not in the first generation, and it gathered attention as the first hybrid SUV car in Japan.
As standard equipment in all cars, the second-generation Harrier has a seat belt warning buzzer and a two-mirror auxiliary confirmation device that can be used as a side under mirror.
Also, as an important feature, it had many newest improvements. For example, as a car navigation system was changed to HDD type.
In the specially equipped car of second generation Harrier that was launched in January 2008, the HDD navigation system was changed to color back guide monitor with voice guidance as a special option which increased the luxury of a car.
With a 2.4L in-line 4-cylinder engine, a driver can have a smooth driving in the flat area and high-speed lane. It also has excellent fuel efficiency especially in highways and can provide comfortable ride.
Since the exterior is bigger than the first generation, it is very spacious even with four adult passengers.
Some people may feel that a car with a 2.4L in-line 4-cylinder engine does not have enough power when going up an uphill.
If you use MT mode and 3 or 2 speed in the shift, it might solve the issue. But you might still feel it is a bit stiff.
The turbo car was finally released from the third generation Harrier. It has more power, and the poor fuel economy caused by the heavyweight of the car body was also improved.
Because the body is large, it is not capable of turning in a small space (only the minimum turning radius of 5.7m). This can be one of the demerits of the second generation Harrier.
As the body size became smaller in the third generation Harrier, the problem involved with the minimum turning radius was solved.
The three main characteristics of the third generation Harrier
The third generation Harrier was released at the same time as the discontinue of the second generation Harrier, and it has been sold as a new Harrier in which all demerits were improved.
This generation is the most popular among Carused.jp because of its powerful engine and high safety that the previous Harrier didn’t have.
Let’s take a close look at the third generation Harrier.
The third generation Harrier which was released at the same time as the discontinue of the second generation Harrier has an interior that is characterized as having a high level of the material.
Normally, the interior materials are decided after the design is created, but for the interior of the third generation Harrier, the materials are decided first to complete the design.
To make a spacious space, it has a concave region in the passenger seat. The 3D dry transferred wood pattern panel were different from the previous wood pattern. It was created based on an image of the wood pipe intaking the liquid metal, and the sense of luxury was revealed more than ever.
The body size of the third generation Harrier was total length 4,720mm×total width 1,835mm×total height 1,690mm. Because the size became smaller by 15mm×10mm×20mm compared to the previous generation, the wheelbase was also 55mm smaller which contributed a car to have a better turning performance.
In the third generation Harrier, let’s check the three types of engines.
In the normal gasoline mode, it is 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder DOHC; whereas in hybrid cars, 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder DOCH engine and motor are combined.
In the hybrid engine, thanks to the strong assist of the motor, it has a high degree of silence and excellent fuel efficiency that are regarded as great merits.
Lastly, the turbo engine that was mounted in the third generation Harrier was the engine that combines 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder DOHC engine with turbocharger, it has a very sporty look among three engines.
In the third generation Harrier, all cars of “ELEGANCE” and higher grades have Collision avoidance systems, “pre-crash safety”. The cars of “PREMIUM” and higher grades have “Lane departure alert”. In “PREMIUM Advanced Package”, “panoramic view monitor” that support to check left and right was adapted. Compared to the first and second generation Harrier, it has superior safety performance.
With its heavy steering, many drivers commented that it has a smooth motion even on unpaved rough roads. Its ride quality is a great merit.
The back seats are very spacious, and the luggage space has enough room to be able to carry many belongings.
There are many people who feel uncomfortable having the shift lever at the high position which is one of the characteristics of Harrier. Also, the rear mirror was put way behind, so some feel that it has poor visibility.
Furthermore, a car with a 2L engine is often considered as not having enough power, but it does not have any problems when driving in a city.
The first generation Harrier gained much attention for its sophisticated interior and exterior as being a pioneer of luxury SUV car, and the highest safety performance was one of the characteristics.
From the second generation Harrier, the interior with Trinocular independent metering was set as standard equipment, and the same engine of the first generation was used. The body size was smaller than the second and third generation Harrier which made a car to have a better turning performance. It has superior safety performance compared to the previous Harrier.
At Carused.jp, we have many used Harrier.
The third generation Harrier is especially popular with its great safety performance, and we have received many contacts from all over the world.

A luxury car, Harrier, is very expensive when buying it as a new car. Therefore, we recommend that you buy a used Harrier in order to reduce the cost.
However, it is difficult to find a used Harrier by yourself because it is not possible to know who and how the car has been used, and it is necessary to check the vehicle condition and mileage when purchasing.
There are two easiest and surest ways to buy a used Harrier in perfect condition.
By buying at a used car auction in Japan, you can buy a used Harrier at the cheapest cost, because you don’t need to pay an intermediate margin that occurs when buying at a dealer.
In addition, by purchasing directly from online stores in Japan, you can easily obtain a used Harrier from abroad.
The two methods of “buying it at used car auctions” and “buying directly from Japanese online shopping” are the most recommended ways to get a used Harrier, but in what way are you going to obtain it?
In this article, we will introduce how to buy a good used Harrier at a used car auction in Japan without being deceived, for those who want to purchase cheaply and easily.
You can find out what you want to know through the headline, so click on the headline for the content that you are interested in.
Here, we will explain two methods of “buying it at used car auctions” and “buying directly from online shopping in Japan” in detail as to buy a used Harrier cheaply.
The most recommended method is to use the Japanese used car auction when purchasing a used Harrier, but individuals from abroad cannot participate in the Japanese used car auction.
There are some strict conditions to participate in the used car auction in Japan. For example, one year has passed since acquiring a Japanese original license called “Second-hand dealer license”, and there are shops and business offices for buying and selling cars.
Therefore, it is not possible to participate in the used car auction individually in Japan from overseas.
As just described, the conditions for participating in a used car auction in Japan are strict.
And even if you can prepare a deposit of 4, you still need to have a real estate and a store or business office that sells cars in Japan.
Furthermore, it is especially important and difficult to obtain a “second-hand dealer license” of 5 as you need to have an introduction letter from multiple companies. Passing all requirements will be a big challenge.
A second-hand dealer license is a certificate licensed by the government that an individual or corporation can buy, sell, or trade second-hand goods for business use.
Obtaining a second-hand dealer license is difficult even for Japanese companies, and it is necessary to apply to local public safety committees through the police station that has jurisdiction over the sales office.
Even if you live in Japan and you do not have a second-hand dealer license, you cannot participate in the used car auction in Japan, so it is impossible to directly participate in the Japanese auction and purchase a used car harrier directly from abroad.
The merit of a used car auction is that “you can buy the car you want at a low price.”
In general, used cars such as Harrier are purchased from dealers or used car dealerships, but you need to pay an intermediate margin, so even if it is a used Harrier, it is still expensive to purchase.
However, there is an advantage that you can buy at the lowest price because you do not need this intermediate margin by purchasing directly at a used car auction.
On the other hand, there is a demerit that “the general public cannot participate” in the used car auction.
As we mentioned at the beginning, individuals from overseas cannot participate in Japanese used car auctions.
This is because there are strict conditions for participating in Japanese used car auctions.
It is almost impossible for individuals to meet all strict conditions to participate in Japanese used car auctions from overseas, so if you want to buy used Harrier cheaply, you need to use an auction agency that will participate in a Japanese used car.
Since the auction agency meets the conditions to participate in used car auctions in Japan, it is possible to get a used Harrier cheaply.
However, there are some dishonest auction agents, so you need to fully understand all necessary points as not to be deceived and select a reliable used car auction agency.
So, what kind of company is a reliable auction agency?
Let us explain a little further.
By selecting a reliable used car auction agency, you can buy a good used Harrier cheaply without being deceived.
As a method for individuals to purchase used cars from overseas through auction, as mentioned earlier, you can request the auction agency to participate in the used car auction on your behalf. Another method is that you can buy a used car at online auction etc. by C to C transactions.
However, C-to-C transactions are subject to have troubles and are not recommended in this article.
So, in this article, we recommend that you should ask a used car auction agency.
Here, we will introduce what troubles are likely to occur in C to C transactions, along with the characteristics of a reliable auction agency.
Among individuals and companies that sell used cars through C to C online auctions, there are many amateur exhibitors who do not have any special knowledge about cars, and it is not unusual for them to have little knowledge of the condition of used cars.
Therefore, even if it is explained as a used car in good condition without any problems, there are many cases in which various problems are discovered after delivered to the purchaser.
That’s the reason why participating in a used car auction where people with specialized knowledge of used car trading is the safest way to purchase a used car.
We recommend using an auction agency as a method for individuals from overseas to purchase Japanese used cars.
Auction agencies that have the above characteristics will make a successful bid on good quality used cars on your behalf, so you can feel at ease when doing business with them.
One of the characteristics of a reliable auction agency is that it participates in car auctions all over Japan.
There are only 10 out of 50,000 auction agents in Japan which are members of all the car auctions held throughout Japan. Because they are members of all auctions, it is possible to handle many used cars.
In addition, since auction agents that can deal flexibly with the various languages in response to the request can trade without limiting the country, you can request an auction agent individually from overseas and also receive detailed explanations about the condition of the car.
Carused.jp will help you to buy a used Harrier by participating in a used car auction in Japan, for those who live in abroad.
Carused.jp is an auction agency that meets all the characteristics of “a reliable auction agency” introduced earlier.
Since Carused.jp can deal with the various languages, they can act as a Japanese car auction agency regardless of country. Moreover, they can explain the condition of the car in detail, so you can grasp the condition of the used Harrier in detail.
If you are an individual from overseas and want to buy Harrier by requesting a Japanese used car auction agency, you need just two steps into this process when requesting Carused.jp.
Let’s look at these two steps.
Since a trusting relationship is important in Japanese car auctions, it is necessary to register customer information.
Enter your country, address, phone number, name, and other information to register for membership.
Carused.jp asks all customers to pay a deposit before taking a role as the auction agency.
This deposit will be refunded if we could not make a successful bid on the requested used Harrier at the auction.
If we could make a successful bid, you can use the deposit to pay the cost of the used Harrier.
The amount of the deposit varies depending on the car auction agency, but it is common to put down a deposit of about 1,000 to 3,000 dollars.
The deposit is necessary because there are some risks. For example, in case the customer does not pay the amount, there are a handling fee and a relisting fee for purchases in Japan.
After registering and putting down the deposit, you need to wait for the auction result.
The auction results will be submitted by email on the day of the auction, so you will know the result immediately.
If the auction agency reports that “we made a successful bid on Harrier at the auction”, the invoice with the total amount for the vehicle will be sent to your email address, so we will make payment within 48 hours (2 days).
Harrier will be loaded on a container ship in the shortest time after payment is completed, and it will be arranged to arrive in Africa, Europe, etc. in about one month.
It takes about a month and a half before you receive your car, as it takes time to check all necessary documents, for example, to clear the goods for transit duties.
You can buy used Harrier at a local used car dealer, but if you want to buy the cheapest Harrier, you should buy it through online shopping.
The reason is, as we mentioned earlier, the used car dealers purchase used cars through auction agencies.
If you purchase used cars through the used car auction agency, a commission is required, so they add the extra cost of an intermediate margin.
Therefore, just because a used car is cheaper than a new car, it is not always cheaper to buy a used car from a dealer.
By purchasing directly through online shopping, you can buy used Harrier at the cheapest cost, because the intermediate margin will not be required.
The merits of buying at a dealer are that you can check and buy the car directly, and also you can receive a guarantee for several months.
However, there are few people who have the expert knowledge to visually inspect the condition of the vehicle. “You can check and buy the car directly” means that you can only check “the condition of the exterior and interior.”
Some used car dealers may have a quality certification system for several months; however, it is difficult to find out if a used car is defective just by driving it for several months.
In addition, there are many used car dealers who sell without checking the condition of the used car properly or do not perform maintenance. When you buy a used car locally, you may need to maintain it afterward.
In the maintenance of used cars, you have to purchase the parts yourself and maintain, so even if you buy a used Harrier at a low price, you may need to pay extra cost for repair.
Carused.jp, a used car auction agency, makes a direct assessment before making a successful bid for a used car at an auction. Therefore, we are able to deliver used cars which are in good condition.
That’s why you can drive without any problems after you received the car, and you don’t need to pay the repair costs which may incur after purchasing it locally.
By purchasing a used Harrier through online shopping directly,
By purchasing a used Harrier through online shopping directly, there are many merits besides purchasing it at the cheapest price.
Harrier is popular not only in Japan but also overseas as a luxury SUV car.
In order to buy Harrier cheaply, we recommend that you should buy a used car instead of a new car. There are two methods to purchase a used car; using the Internet auction which is mainly C to C transactions and a used car auction.
In the case of internet auctions, there are many cases in which cars in a bad condition are put up by individuals who do not know the condition of used cars well. There are some troubles being reported in the past, for example, there were odometer-tampered vehicles, and a purchaser didn’t receive the car after paying the full amount.
Therefore, if you want to buy a used car, we recommend that you should use the used car auction in Japan.
However, in order to participate in the used car auction in Japan, it is necessary to meet all strict conditions, so individuals from overseas cannot participate.
Therefore, for individuals from overseas to participate in the used car auction in Japan, they need to use the auction agency. So that they can purchase the used Harrier at the cheapest cost.
Carused.jp conducts a direct assessment before making a successful bid at a used car auction, so it is possible to deliver high quality used cars.
Moreover, Carused.jp can deal flexibly with the various languages to explain the condition of a used car in detail.

A small-sized truck made in Japan that is popular in the world!
Among them, Mitsubishi’s canter truck, Isuzu’s elf truck, and Hino’s dutro truck.
Which one should you buy?
This time, we will introduce which truck is superior to the others!
Mitsubishi’s canter truck is the most popular among the three vehicles.
Let’s check the reasons for its popularity.
Based on the above reasons, we will explain each in detail.
Canter has excellent environmental performance, economic efficiency, and safety. It uses the latest technology to keep exhaust gas in a clean state and meets Japan’s strict emission control standards. The good point is that it is environmentally friendly.
And what we should pay attention to is its good fuel efficiency. This is a particularly important point. In addition to engine performance, various innovations such as control system and ECO mode have been adapted.
When purchasing a truck, the price of the vehicle will be a big concern, but the maintenance cost after purchase is also important. A good fuel economy means that you can save costs. It is essential for business continuity.
High safety is also highly regarded. With the introduction of various safety systems, it protects the safety of drivers and pedestrians. If an accident happens, it may involve human lives, and there is a possibility for big losses in business. Therefore, the safety performance of Canter cannot be missed out.
Due to the above reasons, Mitsubishi Canter has received a high evaluation overseas.
Canter is a truck that is effectively used in Asian countries, North America, and Africa. Since it is the only model sold in Europe among Mitsubishi, it is used in a wide range of overseas regions.
Carused.jp has business with customers in various countries such as Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, DRC, and Malawi.
Therefore, many engines and parts are easily obtained in the exporting countries as a reason behind. In other words, it is much easier to repair.
If so, of course, you can use it for many years without spending a lot of money on maintenance.
We want to avoid having trouble with breakdowns even though a car was just purchased. Canter is most likely to have the spare parts needed for repair, so it can be fixed and used again. That is one of the reasons for its popularity.
Canter is popular, but the price tends to be slightly higher. It does not mean that Elf and Dutro are unpopular. They are relatively inexpensive and can be obtained because they are inferior to Canter.
You might not be able to decide whether you want to ride a popular Canter at a little higher cost or Elf or Dutro at a lower cost. However, if you look only at the price, you may regret later that other aspects such as fuel efficiency and riding comfort should have been respected.
When buying a truck, you need to make a comprehensive judgment. Be careful not to decide promptly because of the price, so that you will not regret it afterward.
Canter, Elf, Dutro. We have introduced these three vehicles, but which truck is the best one? The answer is probably the world’s most popular Canter.
As we mentioned, Elf and Dutro will be better in terms of cost. Certainly, it is important that the initial cost is low… Can they also manage to keep the maintenance cost as low as possible?
What if it breaks down? What if I bumped my car and need repair? If you are worried about these thoughts, we think the best one will be Canter since many parts are easily obtained for repair. It is such a big loss to scrap a car and replace it without being able to repair it. There is such possibility if you purchased Elf and Dutro.
Even if the initial cost is a little higher, Canter is still a better choice because it is much easier to keep maintained. If you are thinking of buying a truck made in Japan, please put Canter as your primary choice.
Canter, Elf, and Dutro are world-famous trucks. Overall, Japanese cars have high performance and tend to last longer, so that the demand for all three cars are remarkably high in many regions.
However, if we need to choose the best one between the three, it will be Canter. The reason is its higher quality and repairing accessibility. In other words, we can point out that it is easy for the driver to drive and easy to maintain.
Of course, both Elf and Dutro are great trucks. It may be a good idea to compare with Canter to think about these two. At that time, please keep in mind that you should look at maintenance costs that are hard to find on the sales site. It would be a great advantage to be able to repair it in case of breakdowns. It’s something that Elf and Dutro don’t have.
In considering the above, it is best to consider purchasing Canter.

Many users are worried, “I want to buy a truck, but I don’t know what kind of truck to choose.” Trucks can be classified by use purpose, shape, size, and loading capacity, etc., and there are various types. So, this time, we took a closer look at the different types of trucks, especially the differences in shape. Please refer to it when purchasing.
What kind of trucks are there in the first place?
A truck is an automobile for freight transportation and is roughly divided into the following three categories according to size.
Truck manufacturers are classified into three categories based on total vehicle weight and loading capacity.
In addition, there is also a type that can increase the loading capacity of medium-duty trucks and can load from 6.5 to 8 tons called “additional tons trucks” and “additional tons vehicles” that are more reasonable than large-sized trucks.
In addition to size, trucks are also classified by lifting device. The lifting device means equipment that can always be mounted on the same position on the vehicle side. Specifically, it often refers to rear equipment such as a trunk, aluminum van, and special vehicle and is also called a body or upper body. In the next section, we will introduce the features and uses of trucks that differ depending on the body and upper body type.
A flat body is one of the standard items of a truck. It has a simple structure with a flat base on the rear wheel and can be said to be suitable for various applications and luggage. Some say the flat body was first made in the history of trucks, and it is active in other industries and markets.
The side of the flat body is called “gate”, and the left, right, and the rear sides are opened for loading and unloading. Gate is made of various materials such as aluminum, iron, and wood.
Merits The flat body has no roof and is orthodox and easy to use, so it can be used for multiple purposes. As features, it is easy to load and unload and has a high work efficiency. Because it is widely used, it is often available at a reasonable price.
Demerits Since there is no hood or roof and it is simple, the cargo is susceptible to the effects of wind and rain. Because it is open, there is a risk of falling, theft, and mischief.
Major use Since it has high versatility, it can be used in many fields. The small flat body is used for carrying lightweight luggage. Both the medium-sized flat body and large-sized flat body are often used for transportation of furniture and home appliances, industrial machines, and moving business in a medium and long-distance.
A van is an abbreviation for van body. A van body vehicle is a truck that has a box-shaped truck bed. An aluminum van is a truck in which aluminum is corrugated or flat (panel) processed. With a sturdy box-shaped truck bed, it can carry loads without being affected by the weather. The rear part of the truck bed has hinged double doors, shutters, and flip-up doors, and can be opened and closed.
A body type that can open and close by flipping up the sides of the box-shaped truck bed like wings is called a wing van (wing body). You can load and unload from the side of the truck bed. Although wing vans and aluminum vans are often classified separately, it can also be seen as a type that opens and closes the side of the aluminum van, so it is also called the “wing-body of the aluminum van.” In that case, they are called as an aluminum wing or panel wing.
Merits: The box shape of the aluminum van has the merit that it is less susceptible to the effects of outside air, wind, and rain compared to the flat body. In addition, there is less concern about luggage falling. The wing van can be loaded and unloaded from the side, which can improve work efficiency.
In addition, some aluminum vans have a heat-insulating material embedded inside the truck bed to be used as refrigerated van trucks. The temperature cannot be adjusted, but it can maintain a constant temperature for a certain amount of time, which is also an advantage of saving fuel consumption compared to other refrigerated vehicles.
Demerits: The wing van has a roof (ceiling) part and a side surface that are integrated into the truck bed, and there are not many shapes that open and close. Therefore, it may not be usable in some places, such as places with a low ceiling or the space is small.
When using an aluminum van as a refrigerated van truck, unlike other refrigerated cars, the temperature cannot be adjusted. It doesn’t cost much fuel, but the quality of the products may deteriorate if it’s a long-distance drive.
Major use: It is used as a commercial vehicle to carry various loads and a refrigerated van truck for transporting food and collecting and delivering parcels. Moving companies also make use of its effectiveness.
There are many types of truck shapes. Here’s a brief introduction to other trucks we haven’t introduced so far.
This is a truck that has heat-insulating material inside the trunk bed and has a freezing and refrigerating function, in which temperature can be adjusted. It can carry products that require quality control, such as fresh foods and pharmaceuticals.
As the name implies, it is a truck equipped with a crane for loading and unloading the trunk bed. It has a convenient function that allows you to load, move, and carry luggage on site. There are several types, such as ones with a crane between the driver’s seat and the truck bed and ones with a crane attached to a truck bed.
The truck is equipped with a mixing drum on the truck bed, and the concrete in the drum is mixed and carried to the site.
It is used when working in high places. It is equipped with a device that goes up and down by accommodating people by placing it on the floor of the worksite (high lift workbench). It is used for construction・equipment work, electrical work such as utility poles, communication work, and signboard installation.
A truck equipped with a suction pump and tank. It is useful for collecting human waste and cleaning septic tanks in areas where the sewerage system is not maintained.
A truck that is equipped with a high-pressure pump and a water tank which can make water high pressure and inject it powerfully. It removes dirt on the road and cleans sewer pipes and domestic water distribution pipes.
A type of truck that has a tank on its truck bed. It can transport petroleum-based products such as gasoline and kerosene, liquids, gases, and powders, etc.
There are various types depending on the shape and size of the truck. Which truck you should use depends on what kind of function you expect and what the purpose of the truck is. We recommend that you decide which type you need and what advantages and disadvantages it has!
