Good Enough, But Not The Class Leader.

With go any-where ability the Toyota Land Cruiser is a good option to choose. Its bulky and strong built makes it an impressive four-by-four, but there are some exceptional models which are of its class but far ahead from the Toyota land Cruiser in durability, performance, fuel consumption, luxury and refinements such as Range Rover, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and impressive Mitsubishi Shogun.

The Toyota as a manufacturer has focused just on its durability and toughness, but the Land Cruiser is not as luxurious as its rivals are. Without expensive and luxurious features, this big SUV stands behind from its competent rivals.

Though it is a four-by-four vehicle but not comfortable as we think. Limited engine range is not sufficient for this big and heavy vehicle. The noise problem is still there. While cruising on motorway you feel not comfortable because of bumpy suspensions.

Diesel engine refinement requires further improvement as while running and staying still the noise is gruff that leaves undesirable impression.
