2021 Toyota Kluger
Although most of the world knows this crossover as the Highlander, the Kluger is a pretty interesting nameplate that is used in Australia. Despite the different name, it is pretty much the same model. Therefore, we are eagerly waiting to see the next-generation model, which is about to hit the market by the end of the year.
The upcoming 2021 Toyota Kluger is about to come with numerous novelties, starting from a new platform, new styling, interior design, powertrain and much more. Also, the new model is about to grow for a bit.
- New design
- More space on the inside
- New tech features
- Improved driving dynamicsCons:
- Time will tell
The most important novelty of this redesign will definitely be a new platform. The 2021 Toyota Kluger is finally about to get the company’s new TNGA platform, which brings significant improvements in terms of driving dynamics and overall performances. Another important novelty will be the change in size, as the new model is about to grow for a bit.
Count on a couple more inches in wheelbase, as well as in the overall length. Finally, count on a completely new styling. The new aesthetics will follow the company’s newest design language, so expect a similar approach to the recently-redesigned RAV4. Still, the 2021 Toyota Kluger will come with a fine amount of distinctive details, which will accentuate the model’s flagship character.
As we already mentioned, the new model will be bigger. One of the main benefits of this enlargement will be more space on the inside. Some of the biggest issues of the current generation should be fixed. This primarily refers to the legroom in the third row, as well as in the cargo area.
Besides more space, we are about to see a completely new dashboard, characterized by higher-quality materials and plenty of new standard features, particularly in terms of safety and latest tech goodies.

When it comes to the powertrain, we could see some very interesting novelties. First of all, the new 2021 Toyota Kluger should carry on with a familiar 3.5-liter V6. This engine current delivers around 295 horsepower, but we could see a slight boost for this occasion.
Same goes for the hybrid version, which will keep the same overall design, but probably come with more power and better overall efficiency. Additionally, the company is about to introduce one completely new powertrain option. That should be a plug-in hybrid version, which will feature all-electric mode as well.
