Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is already on sale! Photo, video, review
YesterdayThe other day, real photos and videos of the new Land Cruiser 300 appeared on the network! Already finished cars are parked near the plant, or they go by car transporters. This suggests that the official premiere of the new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 SUV will take place very soon!
And now, we can carefully examine the car from the leaked photos and videos to the smallest detail.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the exterior changes, new interior, new engines, and indicative prices! And at the end – a short video with a live car from the parking lot of the Toyota plant!
As you can see from the photo above, cars ready for transportation are waiting in the parking lot. The new Kruzak meets with an enlarged radiator grille and narrower headlights compared to the previous generation.
And in this photo, the face of the new Land Cruiser 300 can be seen to the smallest detail! Probably the car was undergoing a final inspection or the elimination of small defects. Or maybe something else…
The front end began to look more modern, mainly due to the filling of new headlights: instead of obsolete lenses, LED sections, and instead of the usual strip of DRL diodes, more stylish, curved DRLs. Also, it is impossible not to notice the smile that appeared in the bumper of the new Land Cruiser 300!
For a greater contrast of changes, I will add a photo comparison with the Land Cruiser 200.
When both cars are side by side, you can immediately see more differences than it might seem at first: the fogs have gone down, and in general the muzzle, as if, has flowed a little; mirrors are now on racks, and a little smaller in size; and the windshield became more rectangular.
Behind the differences are no less! Common features have been preserved, but the taillights have become narrower and more stylish, the rear window is smaller, the window line is now narrower towards the rear, and there are many more minor differences. The new Kruzak looks more like a crossover than an SUV, perhaps because of the resemblance to the Highlander. However, in terms of off-road performance, the 300th will not yield to its predecessor – the frame remains!
Well, let’s try to look into the salon!
As you can see from these not very informative photos, the interior has also become more modern! The steering wheel and dashboard are in the spirit of the new Toyotas, tidy, by the way, is still not electronic. Someone "+", someone "-". But multimedia, finally, began to look stylish, and not foreign, as in the 200th. The deflectors have become horizontal and moved down, making the screen wider! Interestingly, the center console goes down diagonally and has become taller! It may be more convenient to reach the buttons, but it will eat up the extra space!
What about the technique?
V8 will be no more!
Large engines will be replaced by a hybrid like in the Lexus LS – V6 3.5l with 299 hp. 180 hp electric motor, V6 3.4l turbo petrol V35A-FTS 415 hp from the same Lexus, a V6 3.3l turbodiesel from Mazda and a basic, well-known aspirated V6 1GR-FE 4.0l with 249 hp. by L.C. Prado. It is reported that gasoline will be available first, later diesel, and even later hybrid.
And finally, a video with live Land Cruiser 300:
