Are you already struggling to fit your growing family in the old family car? Perhaps it’s time to switch to an SUV.
Toyota Australia has recently introduced the all-new Kluger Hybrid, which was designed with performance and luxury in mind.
“For the first time, this model is now equipped with AWD Hybrid power for easy acceleration and fuel-efficient trips—as Toyota’s continuous support to environmental consciousness. It’s the perfect vehicle whether you’re driving kids to a football game or cruising the highways.”, says Max Funding business analyst Shane Perry.
Aside from this, the Kluger has some more irresistible selling points:
Good news for families who wants to go green! Kluger is now available in a hybrid version that produces 184kW using 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol with two electric motors. Accompanied by 8-speed automatic transmission and an idle-stop, it consumes only 5.6 litres for every 100 kilometres.
The hybrid system is on an all-wheel-drive (AWD)only. Similar to petrol, it also runs on 95 RON+ petrol.
The Kluger showcases defining visuals linking it to other Toyota models, such as the last RAV4.
This unit offers 7 flexible seating with more leg room, giving a more stylish meaning to a family SUV. The adaptable cargo space allows the vehicle to transform from a school shuttle or a fashionable ride easily. If you can’t get enough of the sun, the Grande variant has a panoramic roof.
The interiors of the new Kluger have a more premium ambience with its ventilated front seats and leather accent trim. It also boasts an 11 speaker JBL® Sound System with Apple CarPlay and Android compatibility. You’ll also find five USB outlets which should be helpful during long drives.
The automatic tailgate with kick sensor will also be helpful when your hands are full with picnic baskets and sports equipment.
Enhance the interior and exterior with these Toyota Kluger accessories.
Standard safety features are enhanced with the all-new Kluger. In addition, the Toyota Safety Sense has added emergency steering assist, intersection turn assists, and road sign assist. These new features complement the existing safety highlights, such as cyclist and pedestrian pre-collision detection.
It also has seven airbags, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, active cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, auto-high beam, and lane-keep assist.
The head-up display also makes it easier to manoeuvre through busy roads. Displaying crucial information in your visual field, you don’t have to glimpse the instrument cluster anymore.
The hybrid system matches a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor for each axle, creating a 184-kilowatt output.
Through an electronic continuously variable transmission, the Kluger sends 100% of power to the front wheels and up to 80% to the rear, depending on conditions.
The enhanced grip and stability of this AWD hybrid will give you confidence as you tackle challenging terrains during family vacations.
Clever design, improved packaging and use of premium materials has delivered an all-new Kluger with a cabin that is elegant, refined, spacious and versatile - perfect for the modern family.
