The legendary Toyota Land Cruiser is renowned for being tough enough to take the harshest conditions in its stride. Beyond Arctic wastes and arid deserts, it’s also engineered to master the rigours of the urban jungle: for 2006, front and rear parking sensors are provided as standard, helping drivers avoid unwanted knocks. The sensors - four forward and four aft - are discreetly colour-coded and can be switched off independently.
The Land Cruiser Amazon gains the same package and is also newly-equipped as standard with an in-car entertainment system. This features a DVD player mounted in the rear of the centre armrest unit, with twin monitors integrated into the back of the front seat headrests. Infra-red headsets are provided and the system can also be used to play computer games or play home movies (additional cabling required in addition to the ICE package).
Taking the revised specification into account, Land Cruiser prices rise by £350, with the range now starting at £27,350 for the three-door LC3 3.0-litre D-4D. The Land Cruiser Amazon is now priced from £48,095 on-the-road (4.2 TD).Published 5 January 2005
