A new version of the hugely popular full-size SUV Toyota Land Cruiser has been unveiled in Australia. Although the car first launches in the land down under in October, this is the face-lifted Land Cruiser you will be getting in Asia and Europe, boasting all-new looks and a Euro 5 V8 engine.

While the profile remains pretty much unchanged in the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser, the SUV comes with all-new lights and a revised front grille. Those are enough to give the old LC a fresh new look. The interior has been revamped as well with soft-touch surfaces, revised instruments and controls and other refinements, while the equipment level has received a through upgrade, with items such as air-conditioned seats and a package of advanced safety features including the ability to help prevent or reduce the severity of a collision.

The four-wheel-drive “King of the Road” 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser launches with a revised 4.6-litre petrol V8 engine featuring air-injection system and variable timing which make it Euro 5 compatible. It produces 310 horsepower and 439 nm of torque. There is also a turbo-diesel option, a 4.5 liter unit with new injectors, revised mapping and a diesel particulate filter, capable of developing 270 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. The latter also returns 9.5 litres/100km, which isn’t bad, considering the size and weight of the car.

Market-specific specs and details of the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will be revealed in due course. But depending on the trim level, you get some new options such as Pre-Collision Safety System, Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beam.
