Review: 2017 Toyota Kluger Grande


  • ​Practical family wagon
  • Loaded with kit
  • Dynamic driving experience for an SUV


  • ​​Can develop a thirsty appetite if pushed
  • Lack of engine choices

The Toyota Kluger sits at the top of Toyota’s SUV sales charts just under the big LandCruiser Prado.

We took the top of the range Grande out on the road to try it out.

It’s pretty impressive to think that the Kluger has soldiered on since 2003 with no fundamental changes to the formula. Of course it’s been updated in the decade it has been driven in Australia, but the basic layout of a 2+3+2 seven seater with a single V6 petrol engine option has remained throughout its lifetime.

Competitors are quick to point to its lack of a diesel powertrain that holds it back, but it still seems to sell in droves and dominate the choice of family wagons.
