If you want the best, you tend to have to pay for it and the Land Cruiser has never been conspicuously cheap. Base trim is 'Active', which comes in 3-door short wheelbase or 5-door longwheelbase formns, the later with the option of a third seating row. Prices start at around £42,000 for the 3-door model, but it's only around £1,300 more to get the 5-door; the 5-door 7-seat variant most will want is around £44,000 - or around £57,000 if you want it in plush 'Invincible' form. There's also a 'Commercial' van version.
'Active' trim features the new 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone-mirroring. On top of existing features like 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air conditioning, smart entry, roof rails and heated power door mirrors.
At the top of the range, the seven-seat 'Invincible' version also adopts the smartphone integration package and is now available with an optional Black Pack. Customers who opt for black leather upholstery can also specify an all-black exterior, including the front grille, door mirror casings, rear light surrounds, side mouldings and rear garnish, plus clear lenses for the rear light clusters.
Safety provision has been much improved thanks to upgrades made to the various included Toyota Safety Sense active technologies. These include a Pre-Collision System that in daylight can now detect cyclists. The Adaptive Cruise Control system is now of the 'intelligent' sort. And the addition of 'Lane Trace Assist' provides automatic assistance to keep the vehicle positioned within its traffic lane. As before, you also get 'Lane Departure Alert' and 'Automatic High Beam'. Further driver support is provided a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
