As Europe is getting covered almost entirely in snow, Toyota is enjoying very good days in UK as the sales of the Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser V8 are up 77 per cent and 120 per cent respectively over the same period from last year.
Land Cruiser owes a large part of its success to its image as a robust and capable 4×4, which is the result of 60 years of presence in the market.
In the UK, Land Cruiser is available in three grades, using a 3.0-litre D-4D diesel engine, 5-speed automatic transmission and provides user-friendly advanced technologies for handling, safety and driver guidance. This includes Multi-Terrain Select system, Crawl Control and Multi-Terrain Monitors. The Land Cruiser V8, uses Toyota’s most powerful diesel engine, a 4.5-litre D-4D providing 282bhp and 650Nm of torque, through a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential manual gear change.
