The 7 Seater Hybrid Australia Has Been Waiting For Has Finally Landed
It has been years in the making – a larger 7 seater car that is also a true hybrid, available for the Australian public. The Australian market has been sadly lacking in choice for larger vehicles (with their extra seats and presence on the road) that also incorporate the excellent fuel economy and green credentials of a hybrid. Toyota changes that in 2021 with the release of the Toyota Kluger 7 seater hybrid. Finally, we have a car that ticks all the right boxes.
Australia’s SUV obsession meets hybrid fuel economy and a greener future
The SUV has long been a favourite with Australians. The nature of Australian living is that unless you are a true city slicker, you are likely to spend a large amount of time on the road – getting to work and school, travel to sporting events, holidaying and just living, really. Australian suburbs are spread out, and our cities and towns have substantial distances between them. SUVs offer the driver the attractive benefits of space, a comfortingly solid presence and a greater field of view on the road. The Toyota Kluger has been a popular choice for Australian SUV lovers.
If you are a suburban parent, the SUV fits your family, plus the kids’ friends or a grandparent or two, has space for the after school sport equipment and the comforting presence on the road of a larger vehicle – without being an oversized monster of a vehicle. Spend a lot of time on the open road? You probably like the comfort of a larger vehicle and its field of view. Need a car with more space than a sedan but don’t really need a van? You’re likely to pick an SUV like the Toyota Kluger.
Whilst they have been a massively popular choice, SUVs haven’t always been the most fuel efficient vehicle on the market – that extra size and space is paid for in weight and, ultimately, fuel. By combining a petrol engine with the benefits of an electric motor, the Toyota Hybrid system delivers fuel efficiency, performance and the assurance of knowing you don’t have to find a plug to charge your vehicle. With a Toyota Kluger Hybrid you will no longer sit in traffic in a SUV, looking enviously at the hybrid Toyota Camry as it sits silently beside you, smugly using its battery to reduce fuel usage and CO2 emissions. The 2021 Kluger Hybrid is moving with the market – a greener future does not have to mean compromising on comfort.
Proven Hybrid Technology in a 7 Seater Vehicle
The 2021 Kluger 7 Seater is now available with the Toyota hybrid engine as an option. All the features buyers love about the Toyota Kluger are there - like the flexible 7 seat configuration, handy storage solutions, Toyota Safety Sense technologies, and the optional extras to make family time easy like towbars and roof racks. And now, this is all available as a Hybrid! With the reworking of the new Toyota Kluger, the body is longer with the opportunity for cargo space to be expanded and offer an even more flexible interior.
Whether you are looking at hybrid vehicles to help reduce CO2 emissions, or simply want a more fuel efficient vehicle, it is hard to ignore the 2021 Toyota Kluger Hybrid with its 179kW power, excellent fuel economy and low emissions. In the decades since first pioneering the hybrid engine, Toyota has kept at the forefront of hybrid technology and are so confident in their engineering that they offer a 10-year unlimited kilometre warranty on their new Toyota Hybrid batteries (conditions apply).
In 2021, Toyota makes an exciting start to the year with the Kluger 7 Seater Hybrid - welcome entrant to the Australian family-sized hybrid vehicle market and one that has been a long time coming. With all the right boxes ticked, this Hybrid SUV is sure to be a winner with families. Book your test drive today!
