The time has come for Mat to get his hands on the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser!

He’ll be testing out this all-new 4×4 both on & off-road to see if it has what it takes to compete with class leaders like the Suzuki Jimny & Mercedes G-Class! So let’s take a closer look…

Starting with the design, the Land Cruiser looks seriously rugged on the outside. It rolls up with a boxy-style design, coupled with a huge rear bumper and massive windows along the side and back to help let loads of light in. As you’d expect with a proper 4×4 it also comes with roof bars as well as running boards along the side, while up from the grille design harks back to the classic Land Cruiser design. It looks great!

Step inside and there’ll be no mistaking that you’re in a Land Cruiser. The dash design mirrors the chunky looks of the exterior, and there’s even padding on the centre console so you don’t damage your knees when off-roading! There’s a fair bit of scratchy plastics throughout the place, but that can be forgiven because there are SO many physical buttons! Almost everything is controlled with a button rather than through the infotainment screen – just like the old days! The infotainment system itself is ok, and there are also digital dials for the driver, too.

There’s only one engine available for the Land Cruiser – it’s a 2.8-litre 4-cylinder turbo diesel that can produce 204hp and 500Nm of torque. This power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

We don’t know the price of the Land Cruiser yet, but we expect it to cost in the region of £55,000 – £60,000. So is it worth it? Stick with Mat and see for yourself!
