The 79 Series LandCruisers of the Melbourne 4X4 Show

We'd wager a bet that the 79 Series LandCruiser is the most modified vehicle in Australia.

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 4

There are many things the 2018 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series does well. Audio, satellite navigation, Bluetooth clarity, phone connectivity and smartphone integration - those features we bundle under the term 'infotainment' in other words - are not among them. Not even on the consideration set as a matter of fact. The 79's infotainment is somewhere between awful and non existent...

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 3

While 4x4 utes need no introduction to the Australian automotive landscape these days, tastes are changing. Once upon a time, the only guys who were fitting trays to their 4WDs were folks needing to shift hay bales and pallets around the place, and a simple flat bed of steel or timber was often the easiest and best solution...

Buying and modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 2

Why pull out new suspension and spend your own hard-earned money to replace it with some aftermarket gear? Good question, right? The answer comes down to customisation, and setting up your vehicle to perform well where it counts. While the standard suspension system of the LandCruiser is quite stout and a decent performer, there is definite room for improvement...

2019 Volkswagen Touareg v Toyota LandCruiser Prado comparison

There's a new Touareg in town, so we thought it would be worth sizing up the new VW with the number-one best-selling large SUV in Australia, the Toyota LandCruiser Prado. While it’s around $6000 more expensive off the bat, not excluding the significant 10-grand bump in options, the Touareg does pack a lot of punch for the money...

Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 4

The 79's infotainment is somewhere between awful and non existent. You get a very basic double DIN source unit and two awful dash speakers, and that's it. So Trent Nikolic paid a visit to Automotive Superstore in Sydney's North-West suburbs for audio / visual upgrades on the Landcruiser 79.

Toyota LandCruiser: 200 Series V8 petrol axed

The Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series has had its V8 petrol engine culled, leaving the more expensive twin-turbo V8 diesel the sole powertrain option in Australia. After the petrol variant disappeared from the company's local consumer site, a Toyota Australia spokesperson confirmed the changes with CarAdvice, issuing the following statement: Toyota Australia can confirm from August 2019 production it has discontinued all V8 petrol LandCruiser 200 variants, due to low sales volumes...

2003 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Once I realised my little 2001 WRX was no longer cutting the mustard as a "family car", I had some very hard and long thinking to do. I needed something bigger. I needed something a little more kid friendly. I needed something that I could still entertain myself and my daughter with on weekends. I needed something that wasn’t boring...

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

One month after purchasing our brand-new LandCruiser 200 Series Sahara, we hitched a caravan and embarked on a four-week trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre. The Sahara was amazing in the way it towed the three-tonne caravan. It was both the towing ease and, more importantly, the weight of the Sahara itself that kept the caravan very stable in every situation...

2013 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

Why did I buy a Toyota Prado? Let’s address the elephant in the room to begin: it wasn’t for the badge or the price. Everyone knows that Toyotas by nature are overpriced. So why did I buy it then? Seven seats, lots of cabin space, comfy seats, economical engine and reliable off-road abilities...

2015 Toyota Landcruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Overall, the Landcruiser 200 provides the rugged and robust design Toyota is well known for. The 4.5-litre V8 provides grunt whenever required, perfect for when towing a heavy load, although the turbos give a little lag when punching the accelerator. For the size of the Landcruiser the engine provides relatively economical fuel consumption, whether it be city or highway driving...
