THE facelifted Kluger featured a new front bumper, lights, grille, tail-lights and door mouldings. Inside, all grades received a new centre dash colour plus 50:50 split-folding for third-row seats in seven-seat models.
The exterior mirrors on all grades were fitted with puddle lamps that illuminated when the proximity key unlocked the Kluger to show the area around the doors.
The styling changes required new front mudguards and, along with a new bonnet, the sheetmetal changes made this a significant facelift.
The KX-R variants got a large rear spoiler, improved audio system with USB input and Bluetooth phone connectivity, plus a fresh design for the 17-inch alloy wheels.
The KX-S grade came with seven seats only and was dressed up inside with perforated leather trim on both the first and second row seats. An improved audio display plus USB input for its six-disc CD MP3 audio unit were also included while on the outside the roof rails were chrome-finished.
The top-of-the-range Kluger Grande, also a seven-seater with perforated leather trim, chrome roof rails and bumper accent, new-look woodgrain dash finish and new 19-inch wheels.
Satellite-navigation, three-zone climate-control, seven airbags (including driver’s knee bag), power sunroof and Bluetooth phone connectivity completed the picture.
