60sec road test
In a world where very few off-roaders can actually go off road, the Land Cruiser is one of the last bastions of go-anywhere mud-plugging ability. It all begins to fall apart back on tarmac, where the Land Cruiser feels about as wieldy as the aircraft carrier it resembles. A seven-seat option is available, and it comes packed with kit – as it should, top V8 versions are eye-wateringly expensive.
