EXTERIOR AND LOOKS

Land Cruiser 200 has the innate muscularity which is synonymous to a sports utility vehicle. The tall height and higher ground clearance gives the SUV a desired stance or rather it supports the outer styling that is done to make the vehicle appear macho. Front profile in particular is styled aggressively and that is also the highlight of the SUV’s design. Bumper is wide featuring an assertive radiator grille with three thick chrome bars and a thicker chrome surround that meets with the head lights. The automatic projector LED head light units are not very broad or gawky, Toyota has sculpted in well rendering the right thickness that looks well in proportion with the front grille. Lower portion of the bumper is painted in body colour and gets fog lamps finished with chrome. Bonnet is also wide and gets two prominent lines that add aggression. Side profile frankly is not very impressive; window frame design is too suave or rather boxy, the thin chrome line on the window belt looks sleek.

Electrochromatic wing mirrors can be adjusted electrically and get a heater and camera, moreover it also comes with memory function. Tyres also appear under weight, wheel arches are large but the space between wheels and arches is a bit too much seeking the attention of onlookers easily. Ten spoke redesigned alloy rims are entwined with all four tyres, most importantly they kind of make do for that awkward space left between wheels and the arches. Black roof rails atop are sporty but it does not have any functionality. Rear comes with LED combination lamps and integrated spoiler with high mount stop lamp. The vehicle also gets a moon roof. Front windshield gets rain sensing wipers and deicer, rear also gets a wiper and defogger.

INTERIOR AND COMFORT

The 2017 Land Cruiser features an interior that is nicer than the average Toyota, with top-quality materials and lots of high-tech items. The overall impression is short of luxury-vehicle standards, but if that’s what you’re looking for, the similar Lexus LX 570 should satisfy.With the exception of the rather long reach to the central touchscreen, the Entune system is easy to use and has a wealth of apps to keep you entertained and informed. The rear entertainment system ensures that other passengers have plenty to keep them occupied as well.

Front seats have ample cushioning and support for all-day comfort. Second-row passengers enjoy heated seats that can slide fore and aft to increase legroom. The third-row seats fold out from the sides of the cabin, and the expected lack of legroom makes them suitable for smaller passengers only.Overall cargo capacity is smaller than you’ll find in other SUVs. Behind the third-row seats, there is only some 16 cubic feet of cargo volume. Behind the second-row seats, you’ll find just 43 cubic feet of space because the third-row seats flip to the side rather than stow beneath the floor. Once the second- and third-row seats are stowed, 82 cubic feet of cargo volume is available.
