Feeling its age now but this leviathan off-roader is still a highly competent machine and can still double as a luxury cruiser in the mould of the Range Rover. Old technology turbodiesel engine is a little crude but is highly effective - mainly because of its enormous size at 4.

Running costs

Not a cheap car, but would lose slightly less money through depreciation than an equivalent Range Rover. Fuel costs are high, even for the diesel.

Emissions summary

Land Cruiser Amazon scores disappointingly on the eco front. With an average of 320 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are too high for a large 4x4. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

The range is disappointingly thirsty, averaging 23 mpg.
