Toyota is planning a sales lift for its Kluger SUV with the release of a
value-packed Altitude special edition.
Features worth more than $9,000 have been added to make the Kluger Altitude, which is available in two-wheel drive
from $44,490* or all-wheel drive from $48,990*.
Satellite navigation, a rear entertainment system and a tilt-and-slide moonroof are the key additional features in the
package, which adds just $1,300 to the price of the seven-seat Kluger KX-R on which it is based, for both the two-wheel
drive and all-wheel drive version.
Kluger Altitude is instantly recognisable, with the KX-R's alloys upgraded from a 17-inch combination to the 19-inch
rims and 245/55 tyres usually reserved for the top-grade Grande variants.
Other external enhancements include black roof rails, front foglamps and an Altitude badge on the tailgate.
Toyota has refined the interior with a premium AVN (Audio, Visual, Navigation) system that incorporates satellite
navigation with traffic updates (where available) and 3D images viewed through a 6.1-inch LCD touch screen. The upgraded
audio system includes Bluetooth™ for hands-free communication, streaming for compatible smart phones or MP3s, phonebook
and SMS message access, voice recognition, SMS text to voice, SD Card Slot, USB input and iPod® control (check if device
Rear-seat passengers will be entertained with the inclusion of a DVD entertainment system with a nine-inch screen
mounted in the roof and three wireless headsets.
Kluger Altitude is offered in four exterior colours and a black fabric interior.
Like the KX-R, power comes from a 3.5-litre dual VVT-i V6 petrol engine driven through a five-speed electronically
controlled automatic transmission.
Kluger's comprehensive safety package includes seven airbags and driver assist technologies such as vehicle stability
and traction control, Hill-start Assist Control and, on the all-wheel drive version, Downhill Assist Control.
Standard features include electric power-assisted steering, audio and multi-information display controls on the
steering wheel, Optitron instruments and air-conditioning.
Kluger Altitude has three rows of seats in a 2-3-2 configuration. The split-fold second-row seat has a removable
