The GX is the entry-grade into the Kluger range with a list price starting at $47,650 for the front-wheel drive and topping out at $54,150 for the hybrid version.
Coming standard on the GX are LED headlights, 18-inch alloys, fabric seats, the 8.0-inch media display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a proximity key with push button start, leather steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo, and air con for the front and second row – or if you have the hybrid you’ll get three-zone climate control.
The hybrid has two electric motors at the front and one at the rear which work together with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.
The power output of the petrol engine is 142kW and the electric motors make 184kW. The engine torque is 242Nm. The front electric motors are able to produce 134Nm and 270Nm, while the rear can make 121Nm.
All Klugers come standard with AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection. There’s also blind-spot warning, lane keeping assistance, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control. There are also front and rear parking sensors.
For child seats there are three top tether anchor points and two ISOFIX locations in the second row. It’s disappointing to see, however, that the Kluger’s curtain airbags don’t cover the third-row occupants.
