The new Land Cruiser is a perfect vehicle that will take you through various terrains and enable you to pass hard to reach parts of the world and make it look easy. Its off-roading ability is pretty high and very useful and allows you to thread through any kind of part of the world that was otherwise deemed unreachable. On the other hand, if you do decided to use it to use it for city and highway drives it works just as well as an oversized SUV, but consumes a lot of gasoline like that.

The new Land Cruiser’s exterior design can only be described as being big and massive. The overall look of the vehicle gives it an imposing image that you will see coming back on the road at you and will have a great impact on you when you see it driving on the street like that. The vehicle retains its corpulent look as before and even adds some beefiness to it this time, making it the largest and biggest SUV on the road like that. It is bigger than anything that Toyota has to offer, except the Sequoia of course, and is as luxurious-looking as the Land Rover or the Lexus LX 570 vehicle.

The car impresses of course with tits off-road ability as its primal function, but as they have strived to make the Land Cruiser a bit more suburban adaptable it has been given some very nice and very luxury lines to it. The result of this fine craftsmanship is that the car looks pretty handsome now and has a quality look to it. It still has the enormous off-roading ability which was not diminished in any way, but it is capable of doing that at a much higher level and looking very nice at the same time.

There have been many advancements for the design of the interior of the 2016 Land Cruiser. The strive was to make the car as comfortable and as luxurious as possible on the inside and make the passengers feel much more relaxed than before. They have managed to produce some fine work on the inside but it is still not something that could be measured to the Lexus vehicles, for example. The Land Cruiser gets a similar treatment that was used inside the Toyota cars and has a plush inside rich with some good looking and comfy materials. The inside has been quite appropriately made and if they decide to keep the car moving in the same direction for the future it will get even more luxurious inside the models to come.

The technological upgrade was not left out here and the Land Cruiser received a respective tech package on the inside. It has a navigation screen matted top and center of the car, also the climate controls are there between somewhere while the off-road controls are placed below. It makes life easier with the technological advancements and makes the drive even more enjoyable with them.
