Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon: Available for both DRY & WET HIRE, TOWN & UPCOUNTRY RUNS and are Comprehensively insured, well resourced with First aid Kits, fire extinguishers, tool box, well experienced drivers as a minimum.
What’s new? Not a lot. The (three-bar) grille’s different, front and rear light clusters have been restyled and the Toyota badges are a bit more prominent. An auto-dimming rear mirror’s now standard, and there’s an optional new ICE system with twin-screen DVD.
What’s it like? Enormous, and pretty good with it. It’s a relaxed car, the diesel’s not that quiet but makes a pleasingly powerful rumble. The ride’s compliant, steering’s only a bit vague but stability is good and it’s comfy over long distances. Interior quality’s high; particularly pretty are the ice-blue dial needles, but the wood trim’s naff and it’s no Range Rover inside. Then, it is a few grand cheaper, and it’s well equipped. Should I buy one? If you’re after an unpretentious big off-roader, then yeah, sure. A Range Rover’s better overall, but the Amazon’s still thoroughly likeable.
