SAFETY UPGRADE FOR TOYOTA KLUGER

Toyota has further increased the safety and convenience of its Kluger sports utility vehicle range.

Technical refinements to Kluger range from the vehicle’s all-wheel-drive system to increased convenience for its cruise control system.

The Kluger also has improved windscreen defogging and cleaner exhaust emissions.

Exterior improvements include the added features of six-spoke alloy wheels and roof rails on CV grade seven-seater model, and a rear spoiler on mid-grade CVX.

High-grade Grande and CVX with the optional Safety Pack now have the added feature of a viscous-coupled limited-slip centre differential - for increased active safety in marginal traction conditions.

The cruise control on all Kluger models now retains the pre-set memory when the vehicle’s speed drops below 40km/h.

The driver can use the Resume button to return to the set speed.

The cruise control can be engaged at speeds as low as 40km/h - an added safety feature in school zones.

Toyota has improved Kluger’s wintertime active safety with the adoption of new defogger logic in the climate control system - to increase airflow and hence improve windscreen defogging.

The vehicle’s exhaust emission performance has also been improved, with the 3.3-litre VVT-i engine recalibrated to meet Euro III low-temperature emission regulations.

Toyota Kluger is a car-based SUV, offering passenger-car like comfort and performance.

Its Quad Cam V6 engine delivers 172kW of power at 5600rpm and 328Nm of torque at 3600rpm, through a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission and constant AWD.

There are three model grades: Kluger CV, CVX and Grande.

Kluger CV has seating for five adults, with the option of a third-row seat.

Kluger CVX and Grande have seating for seven - with three-point seat belts and adjustable head restraints for all seven seats.

Safety equipment in all models includes dual two-stage SRS airbags and ABS (anti-skid brakes) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

Kluger Grande has the added features of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), SRS side airbags and side curtain-shield airbags.

These four safety features are available as a combined Safety Option Package on CVX.
