It may be the smaller brother of the Land Cruiser Amazon, but the Land Cruiser is still a whopper in its own right if you pick the five-door model. If you need something rugged to look the part outside the school gates then we'd suggest you buy a Volvo XC-90 or Lexus RX300 as they're better to drive on the road, (although school-runners will appreciate the fact that a Land Cruiser has eight seats).

What it lacks in terms of on-road agility, it makes up for in go-anywhere talent, so if you don't get it dirty you'll never know just how good it can be.

What owners say...

 It is massive inside so it's great for the family. There are lots of little touches like an independent hot air fan for the windscreen, independent rear air con, 3 sets of interior lights. You can...

 Can seat up to eight though rear seat cramped. But for our family of five all the space we ever need plus roof bars for the bikes. Superb family car.
