Sin­gle Toy­ota Cruiser for the UK

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

TOY­OTA’S V8 jumbo Land Cruiser is back, the only main­stream ri­val to a Range Rover – as if? The UK gets just one model, with a 4.5 turbo diesel pro­duc­ing 268 bhp and al­most 480 lb ft of torque. Kit in­cludes a world first sys­tem which re­duces the turn­ing cir­cle in tight off-road curves – such as when avoid­ing a tree or rock. It has crawl con­trol, which gives a choice of five speeds for climb­ing and de­scend­ing. Its ver­sion of Land Rover’s ter­rain re­sponse gives five set­tings to meet the off-road chal­lenge. A full view around the ve­hi­cle is shown on a screen, cou­pled with a pre­dicted route. Fi­nally, there is vari­able power-steer­ing as­sis­tance to suit off-road driv­ing. Toy­ota Touch Pro, is an ad­vanced mul­ti­me­dia and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with a dig­i­tal tuner, Blue­tooth and a rear-view cam­era, seen on an eight-inch cen­tral touch­screen colour mon­i­tor. Price: £62,285 from March 1. Vis­ual changes in­clude a new frontal de­sign, high-in­ten­sity head­lights and LED day­time run­ning lights. The UK model has 20-inch al­loy wheels.

RI­VAL: The new model be­comes avail­able here on March 1.
