The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class climbs rocks the old-fashioned way, with the looks to match. The 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser builds on a world-class reputation for hardy off-road performance and greatly improves its on-road performance, but don’t expect a plush ride or posh interior.
