2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review long-term report three – load lugging

Sometimes you have to load in a lot of stuff. It could be a large volume of stuff, or a big mass of stuff. Either way, the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute is made for it. We wanted to find out just how well our 79 Series cab-chassis dealt with stuff, so we, er, stuffed it with a few different things. First up was a pallet of ballast from our mates over at Crown Forklifts...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report two – day-to-day driving

The 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute isn’t made for urban driving. It isn’t supposed to spend time in traffic. No. Just, no.

The C-HR is about as un-Toyota as you can get, but that's no bad thing. It's just as convincing, perhaps even more so, in base trim.
