The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser is every bit the off-road machine that it always has been--but the price is so, so high. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL may be an expensive way to haul the family around, but it has excellent driving manners and some very sophisticated safety technology, too.
