The Toyota Kluger hybrid is offered in three grades: the entry-level GX for $54,150, the mid-range GXL at $63,350, and the top-spec Grande for $75,400.
Coming standard on the GX are LED headlights, 18-inch alloys, fabric seats, an 8.0-inch media display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a proximity key with push-button start, a leather steering wheel, 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 GXL scores roof rails, a power tailgate, sat nav, three-zone climate, plus heated driver and front passenger seats.

Leather seats don't appear until you step up to the Grande, which also has ventilated front seats, an 11-speaker JBL stereo, a head-up display, a moonroof, gesture tailgate and 20-inch wheels, which are way too shiny.
The hybrid has two 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 points in the second row.
It's disappointing to see, however, that the Kluger's curtain airbags don't cover the third-row occupants' heads.
