Overview

Facelifted Toyota Kluger seven-seat SUV is getting better with age – but at a price

Toyota logo15 Jun 2017

By HAITHAM RAZAGUI

THE Toyota Kluger received a mid-life update earlier this year, bringing a more powerful yet more efficient version of its 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, further enhanced by the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission borrowed from Lexus. Still no diesel, hybrid or downsized turbo-petrol in sight.

Most variants, including the top-spec Grande tested here, get more equipment to go with the mild styling refresh.

But prices have risen as well, meaning our all-wheel-drive flagship variant now weighs in at just under $70,000 before on-road costs – $10,000 higher than a Kia Sorento GT-Line, $6500 more than a Mazda CX-9 Azami and $3700 north of a Nissan Pathfinder TI AWD.

Is it worth it? Read on to find out.
