Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The Toyota Land Cruiser Commercial is a no-frills kind of SUV and as a result, it comes with the bare minimum as standard. You get steel wheels, keyless entry and start, automatic headlights, heated and powered door mirrors, cruise control, manual air conditioning and that’s about it. The upside to this, however, is that it massively undercuts its closest competitor, the Land Rover Defender Hard Top.
Even in Active trim with goodies like dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, reversing camera and the touchscreen infotainment system that we mentioned earlier it is still significantly cheaper than the Defender. And better yet, the Toyota is predicted to hold onto more of its value over three years of ownership than the Land Rover.
