A major player in the 7 seat SUV market, the Toyota Kluger has been a best seller for over a decade. And with 3 new models hitting the showrooms, there’s never been a better time to discover what the fuss is all about. Here’s why the new GX, GXL and Grande should be on the top of your new car wish list.

Power, privacy & performance

With a 2GR-FKS 3.5 litre V6 engine with 218kW of power and 350Nm of torque standard across the range, the new Klugers pack some serious punch. 4 wheel and front wheel drives are available, with an 8 speed automatic putting the power through all-wheel and two-wheel versions. Moving away from previous models, there’s no manual transmission, diesel or LPG options, and towing capacity is 700kg for unbraked trailers and 2000kg for braked.

Cruising in comfort

Along with 7 seats, all three models include a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, front and rear air-conditioning zones, cruise control, three 12 volt power points (two in the front, one in the back), auto headlights, power windows and mirrors and rear privacy glass.

For those who take their tunes seriously, there’s also a 6 speaker sound system, complete with AM/FM radio, CD player and Bluetooth and USB capabilities. The GX model is powered by Toyota’s media software and has a 6-inch touchscreen, while the GXL and Grande models have sat nav and an 8-inch touchscreen.

The GXL spec level model takes it up another notch with SUNA traffic updates, as well as partial leather seats, 19 inch alloys, sunroof, front parking sensors, around-view camera, window shades for rear seat passengers and heated and cooled front seats. And rest assured your entire family will ride safely thanks to front collision warning, blind spot monitoring, reverse cross traffic alert and reversing guides.

Thoughtful styling & practical design

With one of the most thoughtful interiors in its class, the Kluger has high-set front seats complete with two cup holders, bottle holders in each door and a huge 24 litre centre console with a sliding tray. Rear seat passengers ride in comfort thanks to a sliding 60/40 bench seat, two cup holders in the centre armrest, bottle holders in each door and a separate air-conditioning zone (GX model) or climate control zone (GXL and Grande models).

Back end passengers haven’t been forgotten with an easily accessible third row folding 50/50 with a single action lever to tilt and slide the middle row out of the way. Although head and legroom are scarce, it’s not any worse than other options in the segment, and everyone gets a drink thanks to 4 cup holders.

Competitive pricing

New models are available now, with pricing ranging from $43,550 to $57,550 for GX and GXL models, and the top end Grande priced up to $69,900.
