You have to look long and hard to find anything about the latest Land Cruiser that screams ‘new’. For us, the big Toyota has all the styling cues of something leftover from the 1980s.

While most of people moved on from permed hair and shoulder pads, the Land Cruiser seems to have got stuck in a timewarp. Compare it to an equally capable Land Rover Discovery and the design looks terribly dated.

Still, the sort of people who should be buying a Land Cruiser (stuck in the Outback of Australia perhaps, or up the side of a mountain in the Alps) won’t mind that.

I just get the feeling that had the design team made the Toyota easier on the eye it could be a more enticing piece of kit…
