Car reviews - Toyota - LandCruiser - 100 Series GXL 5-dr wagon
Toyota maintained the model's enviable off-road ability with the refined 100 series

BIGGER than ever but also more comfortable and car-like to drive, the latest, more powerful LandCruiser follows a predictable path towards on-road relevance. Compare today's LandCruiser wagon with the 1960s original and it is clear how the role of 4WDs has changed. Not that the LandCruiser is inept off the bitumen - it is probably more capable than the originals, although most owners will never wish to find out.

The LandCruiser is perhaps the most recognisable large 4WD in Australia. The 1992 version brought some sophistication to the petrol engines with a new twin-cam, 158kW 24-valve inline six-cylinder. An impressive 118kW turbo-diesel was also offered. If a big 4WD is what you need, this is it.
