does that look a bit like Harrier?

And @shizhi , maybe EV?
You mean like Harrier, between RAV4 and Highlander? There is not much information to be revealed, but the new model seems to be specially provided for China. FAW Toyota claims that the model will be put on the market quickly and generate high profits. Based on this, it is unlikely to be Bev.
Seeing the pricing of C-HR EV, you should be able to think that in China, BEV is unlikely to bring high profits.It is more to fulfill China's policy needs.

interesting? And you are right abou SUV, it shuld be smaller than Rav4, but it looks pretty big to me.

As to Chinese sedan, what could it be? Some kind of Sedan Coupe thing like what C-HR is for Corolla/Rav4?

Chinese media think it will be a Corolla with a long wheelbase. Of course, its appearance and interior will be redesigned, its power may be stronger (such as obtaining the M20 series engine), and its name will also change. Compared to competitors such as Volkswagen and Honda. They started to provide Chinese special models in China very early. Toyota started the same action, meaning that the demand in the Chinese market has begun to change his development actions. The previous Toyota models sold in China basically came from models already sold in other markets around the world, including Corolla / Levin, Camry, Avalon, C-HR / Izoa, RAV4, Highlander, Alaphard / Vellfire.
The 875B is a new model developed for more sales. Chinese consumers have a great demand for interior space, which is why BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi mainly sell long-wheelbase models in China.
Toyota has a goal in China. By 2022, his two partners will both reach the annual production capacity of 1 million vehicles, so Toyota has 2 million production capacity in China. This also means that more models need to be sold, so Sienna and Harrier have all started production in China. And in order to balance the relationship between the two partners, basically the same or similar cars, both parties will produce and sell, which can also share more development costs. For example, in the future FAW Toyota will also start production of Highlander, but the name and appearance are different.
Of course, with the growth of sales in China, Toyota may continue to launch models specifically for the Chinese market in the future. The cooperation with BYD is also to provide special EVs in the Chinese market, and this kind of cooperation may be more and more in the future.

FAW does not have a Camry-size sedan, so it goes for a wheelbase stretch on the Corolla. The Corolla's pricing left a considerable gap between it and the Camry. The product will fit in between.

All of this sounds to me like the return of the Avensis (though it's anybody's guess if they'll use the name in China). Avensis died in Europe because TNGA-C Corolla grew to Avensis size, but it seems that the Chinese market requires something in between current Corolla and Camry sizes.

The Levin will upgrade its styling to match the NA market SE/XSE. I'm not certain if this is a Year 2 facelift or an additional XSE trim. It will be available both for the 185T and the Hybrid.

Avensis did not die because Corolla growing, it died because lack of sales. It was "replaced" by Camry, Corolla is still one class lower.
