Definitely worth the investment
We test drove the Kluger Grande over the Christmas and New Year break, and it was a godsend for carting around Christmas presents, food and people to the various family lunches and outings. The inside is absolutely huge – presents, family picnic, bike, scooter, and esky all fit in the back comfortably.
It is truly a pleasure to drive – the seats adjust perfectly to contour your body, the interior is sleek and it drives like a (quiet) dream. The safety features are so reassuring when traveling with children – blind spot indicator and an indicator that lets you know if you’re veering out of your lane or a car is driving too closely and is at risk of collision. We live in the Eastern Suburbs, so parking is generally a nightmare, but the parking cameras made everything so much easier. You can literally pull a real-time, 3D image of the car and it’s surroundings on the screen to make sure there are no dangers around it. Amazing technology.
My husband is a landscape photographer, so we are often up before dawn and eating breakfast in some remote location in the car – while we had the Kluger, we flipped up the boot and all sat comfortably in the back of the car enjoying the sunrise while we ate.
Our two year old absolutely LOVED the DVD player (watch Shrek! watch Elsa!) and the amount of space inside.
There is only one tiny criticism I would make – you can’t power the windows up or down when the ignition is off – or when the accessories feature is on (but the radio and DVD player work). This lost a point for convenience, but every other aspect is absolutely 5 out of 5 stars.
Definitely worth the investment.
