‘BETTER VALUE THAN A PRESTIGE BRAND’
A KLUGER was a “no brainer” for David Burke (main picture) when he was looking to replace his 2013 version of the same car — also bought new. As a bachelor he had owned BMWs and Audis but the Kluger was the default option with marriage and kids.
“I had a bit of a shop around (online) but I didn’t test drive anything other than the Kluger,” he says.
“In terms of value for money I think it’s much better (than the prestige brands).
“We didn’t have a problem with the last one and this one feels just as good.”
Burke bought the top-spec Grande and says the only thing he misses is the option to have two rear screens fitted for the back seats to cater for his three-year-old twins.
“One wants to watch dinosaurs and the other wants to watch princesses and the one screen won’t let me do that,” he says.
He also upgraded the Grande to include side steps, roof racks and rear tinted glass for privacy and solar security for his kids.
Friends bought a Toyota Fortuner but Burke says the stiff suspension put him off and he wouldn’t consider buying one.
“If you’ve driven the Kluger, you wouldn’t buy anything else,” he says.
