android, 2023 toyota kluger price and specs: turbo-petrol four-cylinder more expensive than outgoing v6, but is the mazda cx-9, hyundai santa fe and kia sorento rival still good value?
The fourth-gen Kluger has been updated with a new drivetrain, new multimedia, and a higher price.

The Toyota Kluger has been updated for 2023, with the brand following overseas markets in ditching the petrol V6 engine in favour of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to join the existing hybrid variants.

Pricing for the Toyota Kluger has also been given a bump, with the entry-level Kluger GX 2WD now costing $49,720 before on-road costs, or $2070 more than it did previously.

The GX 2WD is powered by the new 2.4-litre turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, driving the front wheels with its 198kW and 420Nm outputs – down on power by 20kW but up by a hefty 70Nm compared with the outgoing 3.5-litre V6.

The entry GX, as well as the mid-tier GXL and top-spec Grande, is also available with all-wheel drive which costs $53,720.

The hybrid powertrain remains the same, featuring a hybrid-assisted 2.5-litre turbo engine with all-wheel drive for a total of 184kW, and is priced at $56,220.

All three drivetrain options for GX are up by $2070 on their previous prices, meaning the drivetrain changes aren’t the only factor in cost increases.

The whole range benefits from an updated multimedia system, with Toyota’s new tech and a larger screen replacing the old versions. For GX, the instrument cluster screen becomes a 7.0-inch unit instead of the old 4.2-inch version, and its multimedia system gains wireless Apple Carplay, though Android Auto is still wired-only.

The GX variants also now feature automatic dual-zone front and single-zone rear air conditioning.

Moving up to the GXL, prices now start at $59,240 for the front-drive, $63,240 for the all-wheel drive, or $65,740 for the hybrid AWD. These prices are all up by $2090 compared to previously.

For the higher price, the GXL does gain some extra kit over the GX, including a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen for multimedia (also found in the Grande) and carryover equipment like a powered tailgate, satellite navigation, heated front seats, and artificial leather upholstery.

The Grande now starting at $71,610 for the 2WD, is up $2452 compared to before, while the AWD petrol ($74,720) and hybrid ($78,160) have increased by $2459 and $2460 respectively.

The Grande does however gain a new digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster display, the same size as its multimedia screen, as well as a wireless smartphone charger. It also gets the same extra equipment as before such as a set of 20-inch wheels, an upgraded JBL sound system with 11 speakers, a panoramic sunroof, real leather upholstery with cooled front seats, and surround-view cameras.
