The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser keeps with its iconic off-road tradition in some respects, but in most it simply bows to the suburbs. A nimble ride and elegant, tough styling help the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class charm the mud right off a Range Rover.
