Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The Amazon has never been tested under the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). However, it is probably more important that any other vehicle involved in a crash with the Toyota has exceptional crash performance such is its size and mass. The Amazon has a full complement of safety features, including six airbags, Isofix child seat mounting points, and seatbelt pre-tensioners.

If it’s as big as the Amazon on the outside then it must have plenty of room inside. To a great extent it does. However, the third row of seats are stored at the sides of the luggage area which robs it of a little space. The Amazon’s basic design comes from 1998, long before clever seven-seat solutions like the ones found in the Volvo XC90, Land Rover Discovery and Nissan Pathfinder appeared.

But it does have two more seats than its main rival, the Range Rover. Luggage space is still generous when the third row of seats are folded away and is vast with the middle row folded. There are a few useful storage areas in the cabin, but perhaps not as many as in modern large 4x4s.
