Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

When you sit in the Toyota Land Cruiser’s driving seat, the first thing you notice is the soft, squishy cushioning that’s rather like a favourite armchair. That’s great – until you drive into a corner and the lack of side support leaves you gripping the steering wheel to hold yourself in place.

Entry-level Active models get a manually adjustable steering column and driver’s seat, including height adjustment and lumbar support, while they're electrically adjustable if you choose the Invincible trim. In either case, the amount of movement offered lets you get comfortable and there’s good visibility out of the large windows and relatively slim pillars.

We’re not impressed by the quality of the materials in the Land Cruiser, either. No doubt they're robust enough for a trek across a desert, but the same can be said of a Land Rover Defender – and that car's hose-down rubberised flooring and wipe-down materials still give off a premium feel.

The plastics (and wood in the top spec) look cheap, and a number of the switches sound hollow when pressed. This is particularly disappointing for a premium-priced SUV when cheaper alternatives such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Ssangyong Rexton are far plusher inside.
