NEXT GENERATION: D-4D engine has 10 per cent more power

If the Prius is the 'green' face of Toyota, the Land Cruiser was the bold, brutish, bullying big brother.

Now a new generation Land Cruiser arrives on the 60th anniversary of its launch.

The world's best-selling 4WD, the Land Cruiser claims to have evolved to answer ever-changing customer needs, offering outstanding performance and refinement on even the toughest terrain.

The new Land Cruiser is available in two body styles: short wheel base and long wheel base, and available in four grades: GL commercial, GX commercial, GX passenger and Premium, with prices starting from €37,675.

The 3.0 litre D-4D (190) engine has increased power of 10 per cent and torque of 2.5 per cent. Toyota has even tried to get the Land Cruiser to clean up its act and CO2 emissions have been reduced to 213g/km (5-door, A/T) -- qualifying for tax band F and road tax of €1,050pa.
