The Toyota Highlander is a mid size SUV produced by Toyota. It is categorized as a crossover SUV, the one having features of a passenger vehicle and those of a station wagon as well. Since Japan and Australia had already a vehicle been registered with the Highlander name, Toyota had to rename it as Toyota Kluger. (Kluger means clever or very clever). Toyota started to produce the Hybrid version of Kluger in 2005. In 2007, the 2nd gen of Toyota Kluger Hybrid started and is in the production cycle since then. Above 100 thousand hybrid versions of highlander have been sold to date.
