TOYOTA Australia has moved to re-introduce the LandCruiser 200 Series Altitude special edition into local showrooms, with the four-wheel-drive limited to 600 units and priced at $93,460 before on-road costs.
Based on the GXL diesel variant, the temporary addition to the off-roading wagon's range attracts a premium of $4630, but compensates buyers with a more extensive feature list.
Inside the cabin, upgrades include leather upholstery, powered front seats, chrome-trimmed front air vents, brushed alloy-look highlights and a refrigerated cool box.
Additionally, an LED-backlit instrument cluster with 4.2-inch multi-info display features and is controllable via a new steering wheel-mounted switch.
Meanwhile, external changes are more subtle with the inclusion of LED foglamps and rain-sensing wipers, as well as a slew of Altitude badging.
Black paint is a no-cost option, while premium white, silver, graphite and blue hues incur an additional charge of $550.
“Comprehensive upgrades make the Altitude the ideal choice for those who aspire to a vehicle that delivers an even more luxurious and desirable package,” according to Toyota Australia executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb.
These upgrades add to the LandCruiser 200’s range-wide equipment set which already includes seven airbags, a reversing camera, hill-start assist and trailer sway control.
Furthermore, the GLX grade – from which the Altitude is derived – already offers 17-inch alloy wheels, aluminium side steps, roof rails, 6.1-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control and six-speaker audio system with DAB+ radio.
The special edition eight-seater continues to be powered by a 4.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 diesel engine, which produces 200kW and 650Nm via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy has been rated at 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle test, while CO2 emissions were tested at 250 grams/km.
Capped-price servicing is also offered with the Altitude, with up to six standard visits priced at $280.
LandCruiser 200 sales continue to be strong for the local arm as the high-rider sold 1194 units last month, a favourable result when compared to its Nissan Patrol rival which found 109 buyers.
Interestingly, the Altitude badge is a popular one for Toyota having now applied it to the 200 Series on four occasions since 2011, as well last week with a limited LandCruiser Prado.
