Toyota Kluger Grande Hybrid – ideal for snow trips

Toyota Kluger Grande Hybrid – Winter is upon us and that means snow trips. I was thinking about what vehicle would be ideal to take away of we head to the ski fields this year.

2024 Toyota Kluger Grande Hybrid front quarter 1 A few weeks ago, we went to the Hunter Valley and took a Toyota Kluger Grande Hybrid. This came in an all-wheel drive version, which is necessary for snow trips.

On the Hunter weekend we had three people aboard with luggage and it swallowed all that with ease.

Snow trips often mean more luggage and maybe skis, boots etc.

The Kluger is large enough for four people and all the gear, though Skis will need to go on the roof.

Being a Grande, means lots of little luxuries like heated front leather seats and climate controlled multi zone air conditioning.

It also has wireless Apple Car Play connectivity and charging.

On our recent Hunter Valley trip, we found the 2.5 litre hybrid petrol engine had enough performance along with excellent economy. We averaged around 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres.

Its also smooth, comfortable and easy to drive. That means everyone arrives feeling relaxed and ready to enjoy the holiday.
