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.
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.
