Toyota Land Cruiser (09 on) - rated 3.5 out of 5

Whether it’s tackling the rugged British countryside, providing 4x4 luxury on the school run or on peace keeping missions with the UN, the Toyota Land Cruiser is the omnipresent SUV.

There’s a good reason for it too – reliability, meaning many years ago the Toyota Land Cruiser overtook the Land Rover Defender as the vehicle of choice for those who dwelled where roads are nothing more than rudimentary tracks.

Today’s Toyota Land Cruiser, launched back in 2009, rivals the likes of the Land Rover Discovery and Mitsubishi Shogun offering space, dependability and the ability to traverse difficult terrain.

These Land Cruisers are powered by 3-litre diesel engines serving up 187bhp and returning 34mpg in official fuel consumption tests.
