Luckily, we were in the fortunate position of being able to drive both, so we can deliver a verdict on that particular query. Features and equipment The interior is bespoke in some places and familiar in others. The rear seat entertainment system is a cool addition for Land Cruiser. It mostly comes down to personal preference though. It performs admirably when you gun it, but it is not designed for dynamic driving.
What we were wondering was whether it could justify that premium over the Land Cruiser 200, which is already a very impressive luxury off-roader. The rear passengers get individual screens for individual entertainment and a bigger centre armrest with buttons for the infotainment. This completely clears a very large cargo area quickly.

I want to keep this truck for my son who is 2 years now and I don't want him to have to spend thousands fixing the touch screen nav and the suspension when it fails down the road. The final design was approved in 2004, with testing being conducted into early 2007 on development prototypes and late 2007 on pre-production models. Some of these parts are only a few bolts, or plugs, while others pipes etc are more difficult to get to. Rear seat passengers are treated to two entertainment consoles in the front seatbacks, each able to operate independently of the other.
If you find something different let me know. There are some big differences here, however. Unfortunatley my computer recently dies and I lost everything. Testing was conducted from the mid-1990s till late 1997. Maybe it's because Europeans aren't as fat at Americans? What I don't Know is how do the differences apply on the trails after modification.
Maybe I am wrong in my research of specifications, which included contacting every toyota and Lexus dealer in town for other reasons I found few of the dissimilarities to be listed on any site. It shared the floor plan and most body panels with the equivalent Land Cruiser, and differed in its front appearance and had a more luxurious interior. Coverage on the Land Cruiser ends after only 5 years or 60,000 miles. It has gotten us to pretty much whereever we wanted to go.

Paying for a fancier version that weighs and costs more, but does less? The only transmission option is a six-speed automatic. The lowest setting for when the vehicle was stopped allowed for easier entry, exit and loading. It has both Sport and Sport+ settings, but in these modes the accelerator pedal is ultra responsive and the car launches itself too aggressively when pulling away and when you just push down slightly to overtake.
