2011 Toyota Land Cruiser Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality
The 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser has a very spacious interior layout, with nice, high, and amply shaped front seats that afford a good view of the road, plus a second row that slides fore and aft several inches and has enough headroom and legroom for adults. Don't plan on using the optional third-row seating frequently, though; that's still a bit of an afterthought. The third-row seats don't stow into the floor like many modern SUVs, instead swiveling off to the side where they impinge somewhat on available cargo space.

Interior appointments aren't likely to wow you. Materials, fits, and finishes on this $70k+ vehicle aren't much of a step beyond those in a $30k Highlander, and the Land Cruiser won't earn points for feeling lavish. But it's quiet, tight, and vaultlike, with nearly no wind or road noise to speak of—though you do hear the engine a bit too much.

Despite the high-tech KDSS suspension setup, we found the Land Cruiser's ride to be a bit too firm at times, even jolting over larger bumps. The system is well suited to helping reduce head-toss when out on the trail, and keeping the Land Cruiser level in the corners, but when cruising straight ahead on a choppy road there's no doubt you're in a truck.

The 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser offers good space for five, though the ride and interior appointments are far from luxury-class.
