Be the legend getting around your local in the Land Cruiser 300 coming in with dramatic different profile to its predecessor '200'. This newcomer bears the resemblance of the much-loved 80s-90s series. This SUV never looked better and it's here to make a statement with its front featuring a large and prominent radiator grille with rectangular shaped headlamps on each side, that blend seamlessly into the grille.

The Land Cruiser is available in 3 grades, namely GX-R (serves entry point to the range), ZX(serves luxury model) and GR-S(for the first time on Land Cruiser a Sport which serves as the off-road performance).

Show of your favourite colour wherever you are as the GX-R is available with two textile interior trims, Black or Neutral Beige. The ZX model offers you a choice of three luxurious leather-appointed interior colour schemes with Black, a Black & Dark Red combination or Neutral Beige being options. The GR-S features GR-branded leather interior trim with a choice of either Black or a Black & Dark Red combo.

Why slide into DM's when you can slide into an infinitely adjustable driver's seat? The interior was just designed to suit your lifestyle with keyless entry with auto door-lock, park distance control, an electric parking brake, built-in navigation, climate control with a rear zone, and a Multi-Information Display. This is just for the entry-level, as for the ZX and GR-S these models the level of details will blow your mind for instance

seat heating & ventilation for first- and second-row passengers, wireless charger and tyre pressure monitoring, power fold-down third-row seating, a power-operated back door with hands-free function and all models have Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality.

Featuring punchier engines for more power

The rumours are true the Land Cruiser offers buyers a choice of a 3.5 - litre V6 Twin Turbo petrol engine or 3.3- litre V6Turbodiesel. The new engines are connected to a new slick-shifting 10- speed

automation transmission with low range and diff-lock functionality. The top speed is pegged at 210 km/h for both variants.
