Toyota Land Cruisers last so long and are so strong that many outlive their owners, and we expect nothing less from this generation, despite the cranium-crushing technology it contains. So if you like the idea but not the price and hope to pick up a dirt-cheap one in a year’s time, forget it. Residuals are and will remain enviably strong.

It’s an expensive car to run, though. We still recorded a mere 23.9mpg average on test, meaning that owners will be lucky to see a genuine 30mpg in normal use. The official average of 34.9mpg is pie in the sky.

It might be expensive to tax and fuel, but breakdowns should be few and far between

But you cannot complain about its equipment levels. Indeed, in the top-spec grade it would be quicker by far to list those items it lacks.

But if you fancy going for a cheaper version, keep a close eye on how many goodies you’ll lose as a result; buy an Active and even those third-row seats are optional, while the speaker count reduces from 17 to just nine, the navigation disappears (as does the 360-degree monitor to aid parking) and the seats revert to cloth from leather.
