Toyota Landcruiser

The Toyota LandCruiser is one of the best-known and most popular large 4WDs, thanks to a reputation for reliability and off-road ability.

Launched locally in 1960, the LandCruiser first appeared as a fairly spartan, off-road tool. The LandCruiser was split into two distinct lines in 1967, with one remaining a no-nonsense and utilitarian, and the other pursuing a more luxurious, passenger-oriented design. These days, they’re known as the 70 Series and 300 Series respectively, with both still dedicated to the same principles as half a century ago. The 70 Series is available as a single cab and dual-cab chassis, as well as a wagon and the larger Troop Carrier wagon. The 300 Series is a large wagon-style SUV, but goes from a fairly basic off-roader to a luxurious Range Rover alternative.

Current prices range from $94,301 for the Landcruiser LC300 GX (4X4) to $143,101 for the Landcruiser LC300 Sahara ZX (4X4).

This vehicle is also known as Toyota Land Cruiser.

Toyota Land Cruiser Interior

No matter the variant, 300 Series LandCruisers have a familiar feel about them – due to their practicality and functionality.

Across the LandCruiser 300 Series range, the interiors are very easy to become comfortable in.

In the higher grades, if you're the driver – congratulations! – you get a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel and a ventilated and heated, power-adjustable seat (with three-position driver’s seat memory).

The front passenger gets a ventilated and heated, power-adjustable seat.

Higher grades, such as the Sahara, get a 12.3-inch colour multimedia touchscreen which is a main feature in the cabin with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and there’s a wireless charging pad near the shifter. There are USB and USB-C charging points as well.

There’s a cool box/chilly bin in the centre console and its lid can be opened from either side, so driver or passenger can access chilled drinks.

Beyond those features, there are the usual storage spaces, cup holders, receptacles in the doors for bigger bottles, and other spaces for your bits and pieces.

The second row seats are in a 40/20/40 folding configuration, and the third row is a power-folding arrangement that stows away forwards and flat.

Cargo space varies depending on the variant, but the Sahara’s rear-most luggage area, when all seven seats are in use, is a listed 175 litres (VDA) behind the third row. That expands to 1004 litres when the second and third row are stowed away.

The rear cargo area has a 220V/100W inverter and four tie-down points.

Toyota Land Cruiser Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Land Cruiser here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can I still buy the DVD to update the sat-nav in a 2009 Toyota LandCruiser?

    I'd start with my local Toyota dealer. Chances are it will have a copy of the relevant DVD in its archives, just as it would have copies of technical manuals for vehicles going way back into Toyota's past. Whether or not you'll be able to make yourself a copy of the DVD is another matter, but it can't hurt to ask.

    Failing that, check out your local Toyota or four-wheel-drive club whose members might have the DVD and will be happy for you to copy it. Whether that's a copyright breach, though, might be worth looking into.

    If none of those options are available, I've seen the DVD in question advertised online. It isn't cheap, though, at $200 or $300. Perhaps there are websites out there that can download a copy of the files which you can burn to a DVD for a fee.

  • I struggle to get my 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 200 into the garage

    I'll assume you mean the forthcoming Kia EV9 electric SUV. In which case, yes, you will struggle to fit it into a garage that only just contains a 200-Series LandCruiser, as the EV9 is, indeed, 75mm wider. Perhaps. See, at this stage, the images and specifications we've been dished up have involved the vehicle in its concept stage, and as car companies know only too well, not every aspect of a concept makes it to production (which would be sometime next year in the EV9's case).

    Whether or not the electric off-roader from Kia will have a mirror-retractor function is anybody's guess right now, but the images we've seen of the concept suggest that instead of conventional mirrors, the EV9 would use small cameras mounted in the mirrors' place, transferring the image to the info-screen inside the car. If that's the case, these tiny cameras would not need to be retractable, suggesting that the width of 2055mm quoted for the Kia is possibly a concept-only dimension.

    If the vehicle really reaches production as wide as that, it would have difficulty fitting down some Australian bush tracks; tracks that have been cut by generations of LandCruisers and Nissan Patrols. Then again, the EV9 has been designed for a global market, not just us. And let's not forget the width of a Hummer...

    The bottom line is you'll have to wait and see precisely how wide the Kia is when it finally goes on sale. but if your current LandCruiser is a tight fit, don't expect the Kia to be any easier to fit in your garage.

  • Why can't my 2015 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series select the top gear?

    The cruise control issue could be a fault with the body computer whose job it is to talk to the computer that controls the car’s engine and transmission and turn the driver’s instructions into actions. If there was a problem with the physical actuation of the cruise-control, it would potentially not work at all. But a problem that resets when you turn the ignition off and on again is always cause to suspect a computer glitch.

    The transmission issue is one that has been ongoing sine the 200 Series was launched. Top gear (sixth) is so tall for fuel-economy purposes that the vehicle in its original form would not select that gear below about 110km/h. That’s fine for the USA and Middle East where cruising speeds are higher, but in Australia, it meant that some owners were never seeing sixth gear.

    The solution was to tale the vehicle back to Toyota for a reflash of the on-board computer which would then instruct the transmission to select top gear at 95 or 100km/h. If this reflash hasn’t been performed, you might find that the vehicle has never actually selected top gear in its life. Definitely look into this possibility before spending money on transmission services or anything mechanical.

  • I have a kerosene-like smell coming from my 2006 Toyota LandCruiser exhaust when I am idling.

    For a start, you can rule out the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) as the culprit as these weren’t fitted to the LandCruiser until many years after 2006. Nevertheless, if there’s a smell of anything when the vehicle is idling, there’s either something wrong with the mixture the engine is burning or there’s a leak in the exhaust system somewhere.

    Since the problem has suddenly occurred, it’s probably the latter and you need to check all the joints in the exhaust system, the system itself for rust holes or damage, and even the turbocharger plumbing which can become loose and allow a leak.

    So why do you only smell it at idle? Simply that when the vehicle is moving, the movement of air around the vehicle is whisking the fumes away. When you stop, the fumes `catch up’ with the vehicle, and you can smell them. This needs to be checked out as exhaust fumes can be very dangerous to humans, up to and including carcinogenic.

Toyota Land Cruiser Seats

The LandCruiser 300 Series is available as a five- or seven-seater.

Seats are fabric in lower grades and leather-accented in high grades.

Driver and front-passenger seats are either manually- or power-adjustable, depending on the variant.

The third-row seats in the seven-seat Cruisers have improved over previous generations but they are still realistically better suited to smaller people, i.e. children or your vertically-challenged mates.

Toyota Land Cruiser Seats

Toyota Land Cruiser Boot Space

Cargo space varies slightly between five- and seven-seater variants of the LandCruiser 300 Series. The Sahara’s cargo space, when all seven seats are in use, is a listed 175 litres behind the third row. That grows to 1004 litres when the second and third row are stowed away.

Toyota Land Cruiser Boot space

Toyota Land Cruiser Speed

The Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series is capable of doing the 0-100km/h sprint in about 8.0 seconds. Expect a top speed of around 210km/h.

Toyota Land Cruiser Range

Official fuel consumption is 8.9L/100km on a combined cycle. We've recorded fuel consumption on test, from pump to pump, of 12.8L/100km. Every 300 Series has an 80-litre main fuel tank and a 30L sub-tank so, going by those fuel figures above, you could reasonably expect a driving range of about 860km from a fully-fuelled start.
