New-generation family SUV has familiar attributes. 620 349 20, 2014

Dial up the onboard on Toyota ‘ s new Kluger and as as various internet radio vehicle settings and phone there’s one called Driver Speak.

It’s a neat trick, but something that come in handy when the that will likely be the sixth and seventh seat of family SUV decide to muck up.


New Toyota Kluger.

In the system is more gimmick genuine feature that’s to be hastily adopted by brands to follow suit.

The new Kluger, or as it’s known in the States, is quiet, even at 120km/h on the bustling concrete freeways dominate the Los Angeles road

Even wind noise is suppressed, while the V6 engine ranks on the decibel scale in driving.

But that 3.5-litre which is unchanged from the Kluger . can feel the circa-two-tonne of the Kluger when climbing A new six-speed auto doesn’t much encouragement to drop a ratio or two as it hunts for the engine’s spot.

The 337Nm torque is produced at 4200rpm, much than the turbo diesels are more relaxed lugging sort of weight.

While still decent shove in the rev range, it’s ultimately up that the V6 does its best

Clean revving and punchy, it brisk acceleration. The negative is use, which can creep into the double digits in We saw about 13 litres per 100km some country road and the occasional town.

That the third generation Kluger to be more efficient than the model, thanks to minor savings and the six-speed auto.It’s helped partly by a new four-wheel-drive instead of splitting half the to the front and the other half to the the new one relies predominantly on the front apportioning some (up to 50 per cent) to the wheels.

The colour trip computer in the cluster gives real information on where the drive is showing that even accelerating at freeway speeds torque is sent to the rear.

The Kluger is also set up for comfort than devouring mountain roads. The weight itself known around bends, although the 18-inch tyres (it’s also with Toyo and Bridgestone depending on the grade) grip enough.

The body can feel on tight direction changes and the lacks the fluidity and confidence would help around bends.

Over an occasionally rough and mountain track the Kluger well, using its decent clearance to good effect. suspension offers respectable travel for what is predominantly an SUV, not a serious off-roader.

The control will occasionally a light flashing on the dash as are applied to take care of a slide or squiggle.

Taking off a standstill doesn’t take to trigger the traction control, can dull initial acceleration, but it moving with little

There’s also a centre lock for slippery situations, as snow, mud or sand; it automatically at about 50km/h to prevent on bitumen surfaces.

Inside, the caters for families. Oversized are in abundance and the centre console an unusual sliding lid (it leaves the arm in place while also access to the binnacle) is deep and it’s designed for handbags and all of other trinkets.

There’s a broad shelf across the side of the dash that’s for phones, coins or whatever you struggle to find a home

The main controls are inoffensive and enough, right down to the screen that’s flanked by six menu buttons. Once drilled down to sub-menus generally pretty good large, legible icons, the radio station list can be

More expensive models get satellite-navigation, leather trim, tailgate and various crash systems, such as lane warning and radar cruise

It also comes with a new The new Kluger is 80mm longer the one it replaces yet the wheels are the same apart, so the extra length out over the front and rear.

Combined with the big, chromed nose it certainly it stands out, although arguably lost some of the of the model it will step in

Still, it’s unlikely to sales, which Toyota is will continue as one of the better seven-seat SUVs.

The Highlander, as it is known in the US, is available with a 2.7-litre and petrol-electric hybrid that the V6 and electric motors that to use about 40 per cent less in city driving.

Toyota has asked for the hybrid engine but it is not available, partly due to production Whereas previous Klugers here came from the next ones will from Toyota’s Indiana in the US.
