What is it?
This is the new shape Toyota Land Cruiser, that'll be on sale in UK from 1 December with a 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine and a big five/seven seater body.
We're looking here however at the Japan spec version that's already on sale. It gets the Prado badge and different range of 4.0-litre V6 and 2.7-litre four cylinder petrol engines but in the grand scheme of things, Japan and UK versions are not so hugely different, Toyota says.
This is another evolutionary 'Cruiser with traditional body-on-frame construction, rugged looks and massively capable 4x4 system, now further upgraded to make it even more indomitable off-road.
In the UK, there will be three model grades but it's the flagship LC5 that gets the smartest tech including Adaptive (AVS) suspension with variable damping, switchable height control and auto self-leveling.
Off road, an elaborate new Multi-Terrain Select system helps you cope with an array of different adverse surfaces. There are cameras providing real-time images of what's going on around the car and a useful Steering Angle Display showing the position of the front wheels.
