Can anyone tell the difference between the two without looking at their
insignia for the latest model(2004 model).I heard that there are some car
dealers who actually rebadge a Toyota Harrier to a Lexus RX330 and make
customers believe what they are buying is a Lexus rather than a Toyota.
Any advice from any sifus out there?

hmmm

RX300 has the Toyota's option of the reduced glare on the center rear
mirror.

Steering Wheel must be a Lexus badge

RX300 comes only with 3 litre V6 engine....

extra side mirror only for harrier

The toyota Harrier and the lexus RX300 is actually exactly the same car
and they are made in the same factory... In japan, there is no such thing
as Lexus. the RX 300 is called the Toyota Harrier, the LS 430 is called
the Toyota Celsior, the Lexus ES 300 is called Toyota Windom, the GS 300
is called the Toyota Aristo, the IS 200 is called toyota altezza, SC 430
is called toyota soarer. In Japan, these are all part of the toyota
lineup. The lexus badge was only created so that cars such as LS 400 would
not sound like such a cheap brand Toyota, so they had to make an Upmarket
brand, Lexus.
The same goes for Honda and Acura, Nissan and infiniti

to add, The renaming was part of their marketing plan for the US market
where the targeted consumer doesn't like japanese sounding brand.

raymond,

you dont need to find an expert for the 2.2 harrier coz the engine is the
same as the toyota camry 1995 model the long and rounded model.
