While the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser doesn't have any crash-test scores to prove its implied safety, from either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), it does have an ever-increasing array of safety technology and lots, lots of ground-hugging weight in its corner.
Among its standard safety features are some that were options just last year. They include ten airbags--among them second-row side airbags and front knee airbags--along with active headrests, stability control, tire pressure monitors, and anti-lock braking tuned for a variety of on- and off-road surfaces.
Toyota’s Pre-Collision System, new two years ago, is designed to detect other vehicles and obstacles and help optimize the restraining performance of the front passenger seatbelts if a collision is imminent.
While there's plenty of window space in the Land Cruiser, visibility can be challenging in up-close parking situations because of the height of this truck next to other vehicles (and kids and strollers and the like). Parking sensors are standard, and a rearview camera is included with the newly standard navigation system.
