At a glance
Are used Toyota Kluger SUVs good for families?
Being a large seven-seater like the Nissan X-Trail and Ford Everest, the Toyota Kluger already ticks a huge box for many growing families. SUVs also offer more versatility (and style) over the people-mover regulars of weekend soccer practice. Here’s a few more highlights of used Toyota Kluger SUVs:
Seating is flexible on the Toyota Kluger, providing plenty of room for easy access, passengers, and cargo. Second and third rows both feature 60:40 splits to create different seating configurations, and are fitted with ISOFIX anchors as well. Leather accented interiors and heated seats are also available on the Kluger GXL and Grande models. Other than seating, you’ll also find second row retractable sunshades and a 9-inch rear seat entertainment system with blu-ray player on the Grande to entertain the little ones comfortably.
Most Toyota Kluger SUVs have a 195L boot capacity with all seats up, and 529L with the third row flat. Flexible seating configurations means you can fit both passengers and cargo in different ways, or have the rear seats folded completely down for maximum space. Starting from the GXL, the power tailgate can help you load shopping bags, baby strollers, or beach gear with ease.
Built as the ultimate family SUV, the Toyota Kluger is packed with nifty features that can help you juggle busy family life. On the GX model, you get steering wheel controls, bluetooth connectivity, reversing camera, and rear parking sensors. Also standard across the range are cup holders in the front and rear, large side pockets and door bins, and shelves in the dash are all great for organising everything from toys to water bottles to iPads.
On the GXL and Grande models, getting in and out is easy with keyless entry and start, and 3-zone climate control means no more complaints about being too hot or too cold. For extra storage or convenience, you’ll be able to find many used Toyota Kluger SUVs in the market with extras like side steps, tow packs, or roof racks installed.
Performance and fuel economy
With choices from petrol 2WD, petrol 4WD and hybrid 4WD, used Toyota Kluger SUVs deliver comfort and enjoyment on short trips or long drives. On 4WD models, the dynamic torque control system is great for getting through uneven surfaces and cornering smoothly around bends.
Hybrid Toyota Kluger models deliver fuel consumptions of 5.6L/100km, taking you further for less. You’ll get a quieter drive on a reliable and powerful SUV that drives smoothly on urban streets to rougher terrains.
The Toyota Kluger is a perfect example of how serious Toyota is about keeping you and your family safe. Its 5-star ANCAP rating will definitely speak to that. Across the range, all rows of seats are protected with a combination of front, side, and curtain airbags. Active safety essentials are standard on all used Toyota Kluger models, including pre-collision system, active cruise control, lane departure alert, and blind spot monitoring. Used Toyota Kluger SUVs have also been selected as the ‘safer pick’ by the Centre for Road Safety.
Is a used Toyota Kluger a good buy?
A used Toyota Kluger is an excellent choice for growing families looking for a large SUV that’s versatile and reliable. 4WD models also have a ‘go anywhere’ feel, making outdoor adventures a breeze. Hybrid Toyota Kluger models are particularly appealing to drivers looking to keep running cost low, thanks to Toyota’s long dedication to green innovation.
