2014 Land Cruiser will be launched in the UK on 1 December. The model benefits from a refreshed exterior design, improvements to the interior, new entertainment features and advanced off-road technologies. The new range has a starting price of £34,995 on-the-road.

Building on the success of the Toyota Touch touchscreen multimedia system, which is now widely available across the Toyota range, 2014 Land Cruiser gains the latest Toyota Touch 2 system.

The new system improves screen resolution by a factor of four, and introduces smartphone style ‘drag and swipe’ gesture technology for improved operation. Developments have been made to the provision and accuracy of traffic information with the adoption of Tom Tom Real Time Traffic alerts.

Destination selection has been improved with the use of Google Street View functionality, allowing users to see a high resolution image of their destination before selection. No other mainstream manufacturer currently offers this feature in the UK.

Tom Tom Real Time Traffic and Google Street View are pre-installed on Toyota Touch 2 and are available free of charge for one year from purchase of the car.

In addition to the comprehensive range of safety features available as standard on 2014 Land Cruiser, customers can specify an additional safety pack. This includes adaptive cruise control with pre-crash system, designed to minimise the chances of injury in the event of a collision. This pack is priced at £1,360.
