The Toyota LandCruiser is a deadset off-roading legend, its reputation built on a lifetime of reliability, toughness, capability, not to mention the availability of Toyota parts Australia-wide.
The 200 Series has been around for more than a decade and, until the 300 Series arrives here in about two 2019s, it’s your only option if you want to climb into a brand-new Cruiser.
Toyota reckons the 200 is the “King off the road” so we took it into the bush to test that claim. Is the 200 actually still any good? Or does it now rely too much on technology, rather than old-school mechanicals?
We tested the VX, the second-from-top-spec 200 Series, in a four-variant range. Price as tested is $100,865 (plus on-road costs). The 200 Series has a 4.5-litre turbo-diesel V8 engine – producing 200kW at 3600rpm and 650Nm at 1600-2600rpm. Fuel consumption is listed as 9.5L/100km (combined), but we recorded 12.6L/100km (including a lot of low-range 4WDing). It has a five-star ANCAP rating from testing conducted in 2011.
It’s not perfect – it’s big, heavy and expensive – but it’s one of the best in the large SUV mob. It’s a roomy, capable 4WD wagon and there are lots of accessories available for it.
