Toyota Land Cruiser: driven - Practicality
Although there's not much glitz inside, one thing the Land Cruiser's cabin isn't short of is space. There's lots of room up front and rear-seat passengers can stretch out, especially if they recline their seat's backrest. The seats are split 40/20/40, too, and each slides to balance legroom and luggage requirements.
Entry-level LC3 models have five seats, with the option (for £700) of two rear seats that you can fold up or down from the boot floor by hand. LC4 and LC5 versions have electrically powered folding rear seats as standard. These provide enough head- and legroom for adults, but load space behind them is minimal. With the two rearmost seats folded down, the Land Cruiser's boot is large, even though the floor is unhelpfully high. The huge, side-opening tailgate isn't best suited to crowded supermarket car parks, either, although you can open the rear window separately to lift smaller items in or out.
