The all-new Toyota Kluger will sport sharper, squarer styling when the covers come off at next week’s 2013 New York auto show.
The single teaser image confirms the third-generation Toyota Kluger – called Highlander in most overseas markets – will feature a broad, chrome-edged grille flanked by thin, horizontal headlights, while contoured bumper and bonnet panels combine for a tougher, more muscular appearance.
Like the current model, the new Toyota Kluger is understood to share its basic underpinnings with the mid-sized Camry sedan. It will continue to be available in front- and all-wheel drive, as well as available with up to seven seats.
While the second-gen Kluger is offered exclusively with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and five-speed automatic transmission combination in Australia, the new model may offer customers greater choice, with more fuel-efficient four-cylinder and hybrid variants set to be offered in some overseas markets.
