For The Toyota Land Cruiser is practical, built to last and will go wherever you want it to. The entry-level version is decent value for money.

Against It's not as agile as many rivals on road, and the four-cylinder engine is a bit weedy. The cabin doesn't have any wow factor, either.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a no-nonsense 4x4. However, it's not as well rounded as many 4x4s as a result.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Toyota Land Cruiser isn't as plush or sporty as some 4x4s, but in terms of ruggedness and dependability, it has few peers.

That's not to say that it's uncivilised. Far from it – it's refined and, in top-spec trim, stuffed full of high-tech kit. We reckon it works best as the entry-level LC3 model, though, because it keeps the price low, has the same 3.0-litre diesel engine as the rest of the range and is still formidable in the rough.

You could see LC4 trim as a good compromise, but there's a massive jump in price over LC3.
