A look inside the new Toyota Land Cruiser (and a brief look at the outside)
While it remains a tough, go-anywhere off-roader in the long tradition of its name, the Land Cruiser is also a first class on-road vehicle which sets high standards for interior quality, comfort, flexibility, convenience and state-of-the-art technology.
The robust, functional geometric dashboard design features a strong horizontal form penetrated by a prominent vertical centre console. Within the upper console, a brushed metal audio control panel has been located above the 7” full-colour display, accentuating the strongly three-dimensional nature of the design. Below the automatic air conditioning controls, a switch panel offers comprehensive control of the new Land Cruiser’s off- and on-road driving technology.
The driver’s instrument binnacle, incorporating Optitron meters and a 4.2” colour TFT multi-information display, has been designed for maximum clarity under all working conditions.
The dashboard, centre console, gear lever, steering wheel, door panels and console rear end panel feature a combination of piano black and wood grain finishes, whilst the meter rings, air conditioning panel dials, audio control panel, steering wheel ornamentation and air vent surrounds are highlighted in an aluminium finish, the latter with chrome plated knobs.
The second row seats feature a forward folding angle of 46 degrees, for ease of entry and exit for third row seat users.
The Land Cruiser is now available with a choice of three interior colour schemes: Black, Ivory and a new Brown & Black dual tone leather upholstery which comes with new brushed aluminium inserts for the centre console and doors. By Luxurious Magazine
