Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

THE Land Cruiser has built a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the world’s tough­est SUVS, com­bin­ing Toy­ota’s leg­endary re­li­a­bil­ity with awe­some off-road cre­den­tials, not to men­tion a cabin that pro­vides room for seven peo­ple.

The 2.8-litre diesel en­gine is not the last word in re­fine­ment and the on-road drive is in­escapably old­fash­ioned com­pared with the likes of the Audi Q7 and Land Rover Dis­cov­ery. But the Land Cruiser’s go-any­where abil­ity still draws buy­ers in. Price range: £37,230-£58,580 Our pick: Ac­tive 5-door auto (£41,030) En­gine: 2.8-litre 4cyl diesel, 174bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd auto, se­lectable 4WD Top speed: 109mph Econ­omy 39.2mpg CO2: 194g/km
