Toyota Kluger 2021 review: GXL snapshot


The GXL sits in the middle of the Kluger range with a list price starting at $58,850 for the front-wheel drive and topping out at $63,350 for the hybrid version.

Coming standard on the GXL are LED headlights, 18-inch alloys, synthetic leather 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. It also picks up three-zone climate control, roof rails, a power tailgate, sat nav, plus heated driver and front passenger seats.

There are two powertrains – a hybrid and a V6. The hybrid is all-wheel drive exclusively, while the V6 comes in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

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 pedestrians 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.
