The 2018 Toyota Kluger range of configurations is currently priced from $34,990. Our most recent review of the 2018 Toyota Kluger resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Editor - Adventure Marcus Craft had this to say at the time: The Kluger Grande AWD is a solid, premium-feel seven-seat SUV, boosted by its complement of new safety tech. It doesn't set any new standards, but it certainly does everything it's supposed to do without being too showy about it – which is unusual because, at this price-point, you expect at least a little bit of pomp an ceremony.

Toyota Kluger 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Kluger 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why did my 2018 Toyota Kluger jump from drive into neutral?

    We haven’t heard of the Kluger jumping out of gear as a common problem, but it’s definitely one you need a mechanic to look at as there’s an obvious safety implication if you lose drive at a critical moment. The 'flaring' could simply be the behaviour that’s been programmed into the vehicle at the factory. The idea is that when you start to use large throttle inputs (say, when overtaking) the vehicle interprets that as you driving on a winding, uphill road. So, to keep the engine making lots of power, it holds on to a lower gear than seems normal. And that’s what you’re feeling when the revs stay high beyond your overtaking move. Try adjusting the car’s mode from Sport to Normal or even Economy, at which point the transmission should become a little less frenetic.

    The good news is that, if there’s something wrong, your car should still be covered by Toyota’s factory warranty (which was three-years/100,000km when your car was bought new) so make it Toyota’s problem. If you’re not happy with your dealer, talk to Toyota Australia’s customer service department.

  • Which Toyota Kluger models have a GPS?

    The Kluger released in 2014 was initially only fitted with navigation in the flagship Grande model. But the facelift of the model in 2017 saw navigation become standard on the mid-spec GXL model, so that model now looks like the most cost-effective way into a Kluger with factory-fitted navigation.

  • What's a reliable 4WD?

    In terms of reliability and common faults there is little difference between Mazda, Honda and Toyota. They are all good, reputable brands building cars of a good quality with few reliability issues. Choose the one that best suits your family needs.

  • Toyota Kluger and Kia Sorento: Which is the best family seven seater?

    That's not easy to answer without knowing your situation in more detail, but if shopping new, I'd recommend the Sorento. 

    It's a fresher overall design with more smart thinking behind it, and a four-year longer factory warranty. 

    It offers the option of diesel if you prefer, but I'd be choosing the petrol for overall performance and refinement, with still decent real-world fuel efficiency. The petrol V6 Sorento is only available in two-wheel drive though. 

    Good luck, and keep us posted with your journey,
