Pride of the land

Toy­ota brings the new Land Cruiser to the UAE

Virtuozity - - AUTO NEWS -

Al-fut­taim Mo­tors, exclusive dis­trib­u­tor of Toy­ota in the UAE, re­cently in­tro­duced the re-de­signed Land Cruiser, the com­pany’s Toy­ota’s long­est run­ning pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cle., for the Emi­rates mar­ket.

The new ve­hi­cle fea­tures 13 ex­te­rior changes, a new in­te­rior lay­out dubbed the‘life Con­trol Lay­out’, an eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, Toy­ota’s flag­ship Safety Sense P, and ad­vanced tech fea­tures. Given the num­ber of Land Cruis­ers that are bought in the UAE, this is an im­por­tant new launch for the mar­ket.

Cou­pled with op­tional 20-inch ma­chinefin­ished al­loys, the ex­te­rior of the new Land Cruiser ex­udes a tougher, more con­fi­dent look thanks to the re­designed hood and grille, while the rear of the ve­hi­cle ex­presses a more sta­ble stance with re­designed tailgate and lights.

In­te­grated safety fea­tures, cou­pled with ad­vanced new spec­i­fi­ca­tions, make this the best Land Cruiser ever, Toy­ota said. The new Land Cruiser is the first model to bring Toy­ota’s flag­ship Toy­ota Safety Sense P to the mar­ket. The car also de­buts sev­eral driver as­sis­tance fea­tures, in­clud­ing a pre-col­li­sion sys­tem, which warns the driver of a prob­a­ble col­li­sion; radar cruise con­trol; lane de­par­ture alert; au­to­matic high beam; a rear cross traf­fic alert sys­tem for safer re­vers­ing in tight car parks; and a blind spot mon­i­tor for safer lane changes.

The new car also of­fers wire­less charg­ing sys­tem in the cen­tre con­sole for sup­ported mo­bile phones, as well as a new Google Places Search fea­ture for Poi-based nav­i­ga­tion, while the rear en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem now fea­tures screen mir­ror­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, en­abling video stream­ing from sup­ported smart­phones.

“The jour­ney of Al-fut­taim Mo­tors started 60 years ago with this very same car, and to­day we con­tinue our jour­ney with the launch of the re­designed Land Cruiser. The new­est it­er­a­tion of this iconic ve­hi­cle sup­ple­ments the suc­cess that it has seen the world over, and par­tic­u­larly in the UAE,” said Saud Ab­basi, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Al-fut­taim Mo­tors.
