Special Features of the Toyota Kluger 2.5 GX Hybrid
The Toyota Kluger comes with attractive contours due to the double horizontal front grille, which is painted silver and joins the headlights, matching the Kluger’s boxy silhouette.
It enhances the exterior’s squarish appearance and, together with other design features, helps to reduce the overall drag coefficient.
18-inch Alloy Wheels
Keeping the Toyota Kluger’s adventurous personality, these 18-inch alloy wheels feature a sporty six-spoke design. These wheels are designed to be robust and durable while giving the vehicle a sporty and masculine appearance.
Automatic High Beam
An automatic high beam gives you a clear view of the road ahead. This feature detects oncoming headlights and taillights and protects you and other drivers on the road from being blinded by your high beams.
It switches off the high beam and activates the low beam as soon as it detects headlights.
60/40 Split-fold Rear Seats
Versatile and efficient, the 60/40-split flap on the 2nd and 3rd-row seats provides extra cargo space for bulky and longer items that need to be brought inside.
It features luggage compartment-mounted release handles that conveniently assist in expanding the area.
Three-zone Automatic Climate Control
Automatic climate control allows you to set the interior temperature you use most often by controlling the temperature of the front seats and the rear seats independently.
It replaces switching back and forth between temperature controls and fan speeds with an automatic climate setting triggered by simply pressing the Auto button on your centre controls.
Toyota Safety Sense
Several safety features built into the latest Toyota Kluger save every driver and their passengers from unwanted road accidents.
Toyota owners enjoy advanced driving assistance systems, such as Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision Safety System with pedestrian and daylight cyclist detection, automatic high beams, Lane Departure, Active Cruise Control, intersection turn assist, Lane Trace Assist and Road Sign Assist (speed sign only).

Central Console Box
Located between the front seats, the central console box keeps your small items, such as wallets or phones.
It also acts as one of the storage compartments that can be an ideal place to store food items and USB charging ports for charging your mobile devices.
7 Supplemental Restraint System Bag (SRS)
The SRS airbags are carefully integrated into the Toyota Kluger and make the difference between a fatal and a severe accident. It effectively reduces injuries between the occupants involved and the vehicle interior.
Exterior of the Toyota Kluger 2.5 GX Hybrid
Toyota equips the Toyota Kluger with electrically operated windows that can be opened and closed at the touch of a button.
This means you no longer have to go to the trouble of opening or closing or raising or lowering your car window as needed, providing maximum convenience.
Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamps are integrated into headlight clusters to make it easier for other motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and cars to notice your presence on the road. This feature helps reduce multi-vehicle accidents during the day.
The rear profile shows a more aggressive and sporty appearance, being equipped with a rear spoiler that serves aesthetics and improves the car’s dynamics.
It is a practical car design that provides downforce to increase its grip and anchor it to the road for better cornering, especially at high speeds.
Providing visibility in adverse conditions, the fog lamps has precision optics that provide a highly regulated light in dense fog and rain.
It is manufactured in special housing with high resistance to water, impact, and corrosion and displays a sporty character.
Active Cruise Control
The cruise control function of Toyota Kluger allows you to set a specific speed at which you want your vehicle to stay while you concentrate on the steering and the road.
Cruise Control is a great feature to use, especially on motorways where you need to keep your phase constant.
Parking and manoeuvring in reverse are much more precise and smoother with the reversing camera.
When reverse gear is engaged, it is automatically activated and displays the area of the vehicle with dynamic guidelines on the central monitor.
The dynamic guidelines on the media display give the driver a clear orientation when manoeuvring.

History of Toyota Kluger 2.5 GX Hybrid
The Toyota Kluger is a mid-size crossover SUV from Toyota that uses the same platform as the Camry. It debuted at the New York International Auto Show in April 2000 and was one of the first vehicle-based midsize SUVs or crossovers.
In Japan, the Toyota Kluger was a more extensive alternative to the RAV4 and available only through the Toyota NETZ dealer network. Its name was derived from the German word “Klug” which means clever or smart.
In its first generation, it shared a platform with its XU30-series cousin – the Toyota Harrier – which was available as a five- and seven-seater and was a sales success for Toyota in several markets.
Toyota introduced its second-generation at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, with sales beginning in July in the United States, and the hybrid variant went on sale in late September. The second generation was not yet available in Japan, and a five-seat variant for the United States and Canada was discontinued in favour of the Venza.
The third-generation Kluger was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in March 2013 and has been refined to look more like other midsize crossover SUVs. It also includes an 8-seat variant with a sliding second-row entry and soft-touch materials on the instrument panel.
In 2019, the fourth generation was revealed at the New York International Auto Show, based on a GA-K platform. A hybrid model was available in February 2020, and the Japanese brand added trim levels such as GX and XSE for the 2021 model year.
Since its introduction, the Toyota Kluger has remained popular in the United States, with over 200,000 units sold, followed by China and Australia.
