Diplomatic Delight Down Under: Ex-Envoy’s Toyota Kluger Lands in Delhi for a Hefty Sum

In a twist that combines international diplomacy with automotive allure, a 2017 Toyota Kluger, previously owned by an Australian diplomat, has hit the bustling streets of India for sale. This isn’t just any Kluger; it’s the revered XU50 third-generation model, also known around the world as the Toyota Highlander.

Under the hood of this mid-size crossover SUV lies a robust 3.5 litre, V6 petrol engine, paired with an automatic transmission for smooth sailing on Delhi’s dynamic roads. The odometer proudly displays a modest 50,000 km, a testament to its journey thus far.

This gem is parked in the upscale neighborhood of Vasant Kunj, Delhi, waiting for its first Indian owner. The asking price? A cool INR 39,69,999 – a figure that reflects its diplomatic heritage and top-notch features.

But there’s a catch – if you’re eyeing this diplomatic cruiser, remember that converting its blue diplomatic license plate to a standard white one involves shelling out additional road tax. As user haemotoroid_ insightfully points out, diplomats have the luxury of importing such vehicles tax-free – a benefit now passed on to the potential Indian buyer, albeit with the added road tax caveat.

The Kluger, a darling in the realm of mid-size SUVs since 2000, has evolved significantly in this third-generation avatar. Gone are the boxy angles of yesteryear, replaced by a design more in line with contemporary mid-size crossovers. This particular model is part of Toyota’s strategic shift, with the Toyota Motor Sales USA taking over production for Australia and New Zealand markets after 2013, marking the end of Japanese production of the second-generation model.

Manufactured in both the USA and China, this diplomatic vehicle boasts a longer and wider body, ensuring comfort and presence on the road. Will this ex-diplomat’s ride find a new home in the heart of India? Only time, and the allure of diplomatic prestige, will tell.
