AUSTRALIANS are about to have a new SUV on their shopping lists.

The Toyota Kluger is due in Australian in March, just three after going on sale in America.



Price: From

Road test: JOSHUA

Pricing for the new line-up is yet to be confirmed but tipped to remain the same as the model, which ranges $40,000 to $65,000.

More than 100,000 Klugers are already on Australian but the former king of the large wagons slipped to fourth in the category last year, in the sales race by the Ford Holden Captiva7 and Jeep Cherokee.

The Kluger is the first sold in Australia to be built in the US of Japan — the new model from Indiana.

VALUE: to measure this when we yet know the price.

But we do know the entry price probably creep up a little because the new will be a seven-seat-only proposition.

The five-seater starts at $39,990 and the versions are about $42,000 for and $44,990 for AWD This places the Kluger at the expensive end of the class.

A seven-seat Ford Territory can be had for than $40,000 drive-away special promotions, and the Holden occasionally has dipped below drive-away.

TECHNOLOGY: Top-end of the new Kluger have a function broadcasts the voice of the driver to the speakers.

It means mum or dad can keep eyes on the road because don’t have to turn head to project their to the second- and third-row seats.

As a rear camera is standard the Kluger range but the screen is and every model gets parking sensors as well.

Top-end models also get alert (a camera checks driving within your and there are beeps if you’re out of line) and radar cruise which maintains a safe gap to the car

DESIGN: If you think it looks a truck, that’s because it was in Toyota’s California studios, in the where big is usually better.

The is it will be slightly harder to than the previous model you need to find a bigger

Inside, the cabin has taken on a up-market appearance.

There are storage pockets and cubbies, a massive 24.5-litre centre which can easily accommodate The centre section of the second-row can slide forward (independently of the on the other side) for better access.

SAFETY: Seven stability control and (most a five-star safety rating. The US has stringent crash test than Australia, in particular for rollover protection.

Of course, we know for sure until does gives its blessings, but is a pretty safe bet.

Presumably Toyota has added deadening and made some refinements to cut noise from the tyres — and the breeze as the two-tonne wagon pushes the air.

The 3.5-litre V6 carries over but is a more frugal thanks to the of a six-speed auto rather the five-speed.

Toyota is yet to publish economy figures for the new model in

VERDICT: A big improvement on the current but we reserve final judgment we know the price.

As good as the new is, Toyota needs to sharpen the to bring the price back to outselling it.
