2017 Toyota Kluger Grande AWD

2017 Toyota Kluger Grande AWDSo, the 2017 Kluger isn’t about reinventing the seven-seat SUV segment as mentioned at the beginning, but it does noticeably improve what has been a popular and well-packaged proposition. It’s more refined to drive, more fuel efficient, and a little bit more intelligent and safer. All of this will be seen as a bonus to those who were already interested in the Kluger, and it might go some way to attracting new buyers who may have overlooked it in the past.

Also helping to smooth out the drive is the introduction of Toyota’s D-4S fuel injection system which pairs both direct and port injection. This technology was previously reserved for Lexus models using the same engine. For the Kluger it sees 17kW more power and 13Nm more torque (218Nm and 350Nm). Peak power is reached at a peakier 6600rpm (instead of 6200rpm), giving you some indication of its freer-revving nature, while max torque continues to be reached at 4700rpm.

In terms of the measurable performance, we clocked a best 0-100km/h time of 8.80 seconds. This is actually down on 8.11 we achieved in the less-powerful, six-speed version last year. We can’t really explain the difference, but in all other areas of acceleration the new model feels quicker. Overtaking performance at low and high speed is now easier thanks to the extra gears, with a quicker kick-down, and scooting around in the city also seems brisker as the gearbox is able to slot into a more suitable ratio, as opposed to holding in second or third with the long-legged six-speed.
