The premium SUV Toyota Land Cruiser needs no introduction as by the name itself its aura can be felt. The big muscular SUV coming from the Japanese manufacturer is known as one of the toughest and robust vehicles launched in Toyota’s history. Toyota Land Cruiser is a true legend in its own right and also the most dominating player amongst the higher stratums of premium SUVs. Its amazing body-on-ladder frame construction makes it stick to the old school SUV standard. That makes it a strong and go anywhere car. Toyota Land Cruiser has the awesome road presence and comes loaded with lots of creature comforts. The legendry Land Cruiser, a dominant 4WD vehicle offers amazing off-roading capabilities in the wildest of terrains and continues to be the symbol of strength and reliability. Updated Land Cruiser receives minor cosmetic changes inside and out while the mechanicals remain the same.
On the outside, Toyota Land Cruiser gets the muscular appeal and looks like a perfect Sport Utility Vehicle. Its tall height and higher ground clearance provides the SUV with the much needed aggressiveness. The front façade receives new three slat hexagonal radiator grille that is flanked by LED headlamps. The bumper is quite wide and is also the main highlight of this SUV’s design. Lower portion of the bumper is painted in body colour and features fog lamps finished in chrome.

Toyota Land Cruiser is offered in vibrant colour pallets such as White Pearl Crystal Shine, Attitude Black, Black, Silver Metallic, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Dark Blue Metallic, Grey Metallic, Copper Brown Mica, Super White and Beige Mica Metallic.
Interiors of Toyota Land Cruiser are amazing, the space inside is also good and we can say that as it gets 2850mm of wheelbase. This implies that there is sufficient space inside the cabin. The car comes with three rows, first and the second row offers comfortable seating to the occupants but the third row seems to be quite cramped. The facelifted SUV now gets additional equipment’s that makes it a perfect premium SUV. The techs included are 4.2-inch audio-video infotainment system, steering wheel comes with audio, voice and telephone controls, DVD, 14-speaker JBL audio system along with EMV screen, push start/stop button, power driver seat with memory function, cruise control and Multi information display (MID). Other features in the list are tilt and telescopic steering, optitron meters, 4-zone air conditioning, power moonroof, efficient cooler box, electrically adjustable rear view mirror, rear parking sensor, rear parking camera, lumbar support and heated steering wheel.
In terms of specifications, Toyota Land Cruiser comes equipped with the 4.5L V8 diesel engine. The oil burner is capable of generating the power output of 265bhp and belts out the maximum torque of 650Nm. The engine comes mated to 6-speed automatic gearbox and the drive is channelized to all the four wheels through 4-wheel drive (4x4) system. The claimed ARAI certified mileage for the Land Cruiser stands at 11.0kmpl. The robust engine, massive tyres and amazing built up quality with other equipment’s makes the car a perfect off-roader. Land Cruiser allows you to switch between different modes such as port, standard and comfort.
For the safety, at this price tag one can expect each and every possible safety aspect in the car. Yes, that’s true as it does have a long list of safety aspects such as 10 SRS airbags, Brake Assist, Hill assist, Anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brake force distribution, traction control, engine immobilizer, sense-P system, vehicle stability control, and cornering lights. The SUV also gets downhill assist control, tyre pressure monitoring system, hill start assist control, headlamp Beam Adjuster, active front headrests, all row ELR seatbelts and power siren.
Toyota Land Cruiser is available in only one variant in the country that is Land Cruiser VX. The pricing is quite jaw dropping as this Land Cruiser SUV is the costliest four wheeler of the company in India. But it’s enough to make the style statement of its own and is quite dominating. The Land Cruiser VX model is tagged at Rs. 1.41 Crore, ex-showroom. Toyota Land Cruiser in the highly priced premium SUV segment competes against the likes such as Land Rover Range Rover.


Step inside and you will be welcomed with the art of sophisticated luxury which has been mastered to perfection. The cabin has been designed and finished to align with the company’s standards. And entering the cabin you will realize that the car is an epitome of flawless styling and extraordinary interiors. The revised dashboard gives enigmatic feel with the revamped central console exhibits a powerful dignity with idiosyncratic presence.
The new Land Cruiser boasts of fresh 4.2 TFT instrument cluster featuring multi-information display. The central console is largely dominated by huge infotainment monitor flanked by large ac vents surrounded by chrome. The steering wheel is also fresh while the control surface that goes along with the central console has also been revamped. As far as quality and fit and finish is concerned, the interiors consist of rare refinement and versatility and not only pleasing to the eyes but also soothing to the senses. The central console has been wrapped in leather while the sides of the consoles are draped in soft leather.
The updated Land Cruiser comes with variety of different colour options including the new one neutral beige with combination of silver ornaments. Additionally, there are alternate Black and Brown colour options that comes with a combination of dark brown decorations. The steering has been wrapped in leather with set of convenient controls as well as heater.
Coming to the seating, the driver gets a commanding view of the road with lofty driving position. The space inside is like a living room with extra width making it possible for three adult size passengers to sit in the middle row comfortably with plenty of head and leg room. And despite of high floor layout, the under-thigh support is also good. And what’s more interesting is that the middle row gets entertainment system that ensures the most rich and high-level of passenger experience.
The third row too gets reasonable space but lacks under-thigh support. However, the last row gets a centre headrest to house an additional occupant. There is also a touchscreen EMV which makes navigation a breeze, however, latest technology such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is not there, may be Toyota has planned these in the next update. But you get 14-speakers JBL sound system for that immersing experience while connectivity options such as USB and Aux-In makes it easy to synchronize music on the go.
In terms of comfort, the passengers get 4-zone climate control, footwell lounge moonroof, wireless phone charger, front seats heater with seat AC, smart entry with push start, front windshield: rain sensing wipers & de-icer and steering wheel with audio+tel+voice+mid controls. Other oodles of comfort in the car include power windows: all door one touch up/down+jam protection, cruise control, illuminated entry system and auto dimming inside rear view mirror.

Overall, the new Toyota Land Cruiser has everything you would want in a luxury power packed SUV.


It would not be an exaggeration to call this car the big momma of SUVs. There is something special about the latest Land Cruiser with beefy bulging flanks and the straight cut lines make it stand out and admired. The company says the car adorns its ‘vibrant clarity’ design philosophy. The three-bar chrome laden grille upfront surrounded by chrome stretching its way to the large rectangular bi-projector LED headlights which have been also revised this time around. The front bumper has been revamped with blackened strip housing new LED fog lamps at the either end having chrome inserts.
The bonnet has also been revised featuring twin power bulges further emphasizing the brawny look. At the sides, the car gets chrome door handles and chrome window profile. The huge wheel arches simply exudes powerful masculine feel and gorgeous looking newly designed 10-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels just add to the robust profile. The entire side profile boasts of bold and thick character lines which not only add to the overall bold looks but also adds to the style statement.
The sporty looking ORVM with LED turn indicators can not only be electrically adjusted but also features memory function, electrochromatic mirrors as well as camera. The moonroof just adds to the premiumness outside. At the rear, Toyota has left no stone unturned to give this vehicle an all new look in this update. The LED rear combination tail lights and split tailgate design with its unique clamshell styling looks absolutely stunning.

Mileage Running Cost

Being the daddy of SUVs, the latest Toyota Land Cruiser is a fuel guzzler. But the carmaker has used high tensile steel sheets while crafting this SUV which helped it shed off extra weight and in turn, enhanced fuel efficiency. Further, there are optimized rolling resistance tyres that improve the fuel efficiency further.
The vehicle returns ARAI certified mileage of 11kmpl but the real world mileage would be below 10kmpl which is still acceptable given the bulk and mammoth engine. But even if the mileage is less, the gigantic 93L of fuel tank will ensure you long journeys without the need of stopping in the middle for refuelling

Comfort Suspension

The 2015 Land Cruiser features ladder frame chassis and the kind of large overspecced suspension setup necessary to traverse terrains where no roads exists, there aren’t high hopes for this car. However, given the fact that it doesn’t drive like a BMW X5, the Land Cruiser does meet expectations. In most of the part, this is because of adaptive dampers which can be switched between various modes such as normal, comfort, ECO, Sport S and Sports S+ to match different road conditions. And the difference can be genuinely felt when you swift from eco or normal to sport mode.
But in the softest of the settings, the road imperfections will tend to create a chock-a-blocks situation while in the firmest of setting such as sport mode, the sharp edges allow the vibrations to peep into the cabin, a typical trait of a ladder chassis. The Suspension-Tems (Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension) which the company calls it, can significantly enhance the comfort and convenience of the passengers via the combination of vehicle height and damping control, minimizing road interference and offering stable and comfortable drive.
However, if dampers are stiffened, everything falls heavily at higher speeds which in conjunction with the outstanding refinement levels, makes this SUV a true highway cruiser. Winding roads are definitely more challenging and since the Land Cruiser always ensures safety and predictability, it lacks that conventional car-like behaviour of other premium soft-off roaders. The fat spare-ground tyres which are optimized for rolling resistance have great grip.

Engine Performance

In its true essence, Toyota Land Cruiser has the genuine capability across all types of terrains, armed with an energizing combination of conventional body-on-chassis approach paired with high-tech running gears. The car is powered by 4.5L twin-turbo V8 diesel engine that makes 285PS and earth shattering torque of 650Nm. And this pulling power easily overcomes the sheer weight of the vehicle to make it practically quick. And that reflects in the numbers as the 0-100kmph sprint can be done in just 13 seconds of time, which is impressive.
But these figures are not the end of the overall story. The powertrain has low-inertia of turbos which means during the drive the driver would feel negligible turbo lag. The car is always ready to plunge forward, thanks to the part throttle response it offers. And though the 6-speed gearbox initial response is a bit low but once you get moving, the response is pretty impressive. The engine comes paired with one of world’s most advanced 4WD system which has minimal impact on the environment.

Braking Safety

The ventilated disc brakes at the front and the rear work terrifically well. The car comes with a lot of electronic aids for further making the stopping power strong. The car comes with multi-terrain ABS with EBD both ensuring balanced braking irrespective of the passenger load. Then there is vehicle stability control which detects lateral skidding at corners helping the driver to maintain control.
Further, there is crawl control system which helps the vehicle maintain constant low speed and stability by controlling both the engine and the brakes as well as minimizing wheel lock spin. Other safety aspects include hill start and hill downhill assist control, turn assist, 10 SRS airbags, power siren and tyre pressure monitoring system.
