Toyota unveiled a significantly updated version of their family-favourite Kluger in April at the New York International Auto Show, with the updated SUV set to arrive on Aussie shores in the first half of 2017.
The revamped model adopts direct injection for the 3.5L dual VVT-I V6 engine, as well as a newly developed ‘direct shift’ eight-speed auto transmission.
Updated exterior styling including new upper and lower grille designs and restyled tail lights lend the new model a freshness that’s sure to prove popular with the Kluger’s core market of outdoors-orientated families.
Toyota’s Tony Cramb recently told us the Kluger had enjoyed record sales in Australia in 2015, with “close to 14,000 units.”
“And the upgrades to the current third-generation version will help further cement that position.”www.toyota.com.au
