Interior improvements make this Land Cruiser more beautifully trimmed than the last
Edmunds' Inside Line

The sheetmetal is revamped to align it with Toyota's current styling direction, lending the new Land Cruiser a look akin to a Highlander hopped up on HGH.
Motor Trend


Mildly restyled for its return in the 2013 model year, the Toyota Land Cruiser presents a classic SUV profile and a more integrated Toyota theme across its very large front end this year.

You'd know it at a distance based on size alone, but now the rugged Land Cruiser locks in on your brain a little easier, with its safari-chic shape highlighted by new LED daytime running lights and a bigger, brighter grille. It's not an inspiring look, per se, like the divinely detailed Range Rover--and it has a near-clone in the form of the Lexus LX 570. Objectively, though, the Land Cruiser keeps with tradition, in looking confident and off-road-ready.

Inside, the Land Cruiser has the same, very upright, chunky styling that all the newer Toyota trucks have received. It's a pretty technology-heavy presentation, with a navigation screen top and center, plus climate, audio, and off-road controls below that, and it emphasizes a certain truth about the Land Cruiser's appeal—that it's rooted more in gated communities than in remote outposts. New this year are a perforated leather trim, more glossy woodgrain on the dash, and brighter metallic trim surrounding some of the dash panels.

Conclusion

The Land Cruiser could use a heavy dose of retro to highlight its old-school SUV goodness.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
