The most important feature of any car is the safety rating, and when you’re looking for a family car you want to be confident in the safety of your family. The Toyota Kluger has a 5 Star ANCAP safety rating and includes front, side, head and knee airbags.

More Interior Room
When looking for a family car, the space inside is vital to ensure your entire family can fit comfortably, as well as being able to pack sports equipment or holiday gear.
Having looked at a number of SUV comparisons (including reviews by Cars Guide), the 2014 Toyota Kluger comes with 7 seats as standard which gives it a significant advantage over the Ford Territory and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The extra 80mm of length has improved room in the back and provides more leg room than the longer Mazda CX-9, with 34cm of leg room in the middle compared to the CX-9’s 27cm when the seat is all the way back and 22cm compared to 16cm when all the way forward.
The 2014 Toyota Kluger also has more boot space than the Ford Territory, Kia Sorrento and Holden Captiva, making it the ‘Most Functional SUV’ as scored by CarAdvice.
CarAdvice also gave the 2014 Toyota Kluger a Performance and Economy rating of 8.5, based on open road tests and current average fuel prices. The Kluger was found to be the most fuel efficient SUV over the Nissan Pathfinder, Kia Sorrento, Mazda CX-9, Ford Territory, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Holden Captiva, meaning you can save and spend more on the important things for your family.
The technology in the Kluger is perfectly designed for ultimate comfort for all the family. The split air conditioning system allows passengers in the middle row to adjust the speed of the fan, whilst both back rows have control over the roof temperature dial. This means no more complaints about temperature!
The new Kluger features a much larger entertainment screen on all models, as well as a conversation mirror.
