The latest in a 60-year line of 4×4 legends, Toyota’s awesome Land Cruiser is tailor-made for the family planning an invasion of a foreign land with tough terrain.
Mountains, valleys, quicksand, rivers, polar wastes – throw anything at this motorised Arnold Schwarzenegger and it will ferry you safely through it and deliver you to your destination.
The version that reached UK showrooms around Christmas has five doors, seven seats, is powered by a 3.0-litre all-wheel-drive diesel engine and costs from £29,795 on the road. Or the mud, whichever you choose.
The Land Cruiser’s bomb-proof build quality and ability to handle almost anything is part of motoring lore, and the latest morph is said to be poised and comfortable on tarmac, too.
MM verdict: More suited to a war zone than a catwalk.
