Equipment and handling
The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the best-known SUV's that has ever been produced and for good reason. It's not only a spacious and comfortable car to drive, it also offers excellent off-roading credentials - if that's what you're looking for. The entry level model offers steel wheels, a basic radio along with keyless entry/start, air conditioning and cruise control. The other trims for the Land Cruiser include alloy wheels, a reversing camera, dual-zone air conditioning while other models add more luxurious items including leather upholstery and adaptive suspension. Some models also feature satnav, LED headlights, privacy glass and an impressive multimedia system. Toyota also offers its 'safety sense system' so drivers get to enjoy autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and automatic dipping headlights in some versions. Behind the wheel, the large SUV delivers a stable ride with good steering feedback and the electronically controlled suspension deals with body lean, particularly in corners. Everything has been well put together and the build quality is nothing short of excellent. Compared with its rivals, the Land Cruiser is a revelation when taken off-road, the automatic gearbox and features such as the multi-terrain monitor and crawl control help deliver a confident driving experience. Some may also find the potential of towing a braked trailer that weighs up to 3,000 kg, or if it's an unbraked trailer then it's 750 kg. It helps too that a standard feature will prevent the trailer from swaying out of control. Essentially, the Toyota Land Cruiser is a well-made and dependable SUV delivering a comfortable drive on tarmac, but for those who need a tough vehicle with a go-anywhere attitude, then the Land Cruiser has an unrivalled reputation for this.
