Fuel economy

Diesel engines 27.4 - 31.7 mpg

For a large 4x4, the Toyota Land Cruiser running costs offer reasonable fuel economy of 35mpg while relatively low CO2 emissions mean it doesn't sit in the top tax bracket for road tax - a considerable saving. Toyota servicing is good value and the dealers have an excellent reputation for customer care. There's also the option of a Toyota Service Plan for new buyers, allowing you to make a one-off payment up front (or in monthly instalments) to cover servicing parts and labour.

You also get a courtesy car. In terms of list prices, there's a big jump up from LC3 models to the LC4 - the latter getting key equipment such as leather seats, sat nav and the third row of seats. It is well equipped as you'd expect of a Toyota and also decent value when compared to alternatives.

Toyota Land Cruiser emissions are fairly high. Although a diesel, it's still a four-wheel drive vehicle that weighs more than two tonnes. So a CO2 emissions figure of 214g/km is pretty good while economy is a useful 35mpg. That may seem high alongside a normal family hatchback, but compare it to a similar powered Land Rover Discovery and it appears impressively low.

The Toyota Land Cruiser reliability record is excellent. The D-4D engine has been well proven and the off road systems have been developed under intensive testing including 50,000 miles of rough road driving and 20,000 miles of real-world off-road conditions.
