Reduced Emissions and Tax For The Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota has achieved a significant reduction in exhaust emissions from the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser, cutting its tax liability and strengthening its cost of ownership profile.

Adopting a new low viscosity differential oil has helped bring down the CO2 figure for the 3.0-litre D-4D automatic from 238 to 224g/km, ratified by a re-test of the model by the Vehicle Certification Agency.

As a result the Toyota Land Cruiser moves from Band L to Band K for Vehicle Excise Duty, almost halving the annual road tax cost (down from £405 to £215). This £190 reduction is reflected in a lower on-the-road price, effective from 1st May 2009 and detailed below.

OTR PRICE
Toyota Land Cruiser LC3 3.0 D-4D Auto £29,630
Toyota Land Cruiser LC4 3.0 D-4D Auto £33,350
Toyota Land Cruiser Invincible 3.0 D-4D Auto £38,145

Reduced emissions and competitive fuel economy and performance strengthen the appeal of the Toyota Land Cruiser compared to its market rivals, as the table below illustrates.
