Infotainment Boost for Land Cruiser in SA


Toyota's Land Cruiser now a touch more sophisticated.

By far Africa’s most popular luxury SUV, the Land Cruiser 200 remains the only choice for true overland adventuring in luxury.

Despite its comparatively aged design, the relative simplicity and robustness of the Land Cruiser 200 makes it more reliable for self-supported ventures to truly remote locations.

Toyota is aware that even its unrivalled Land Cruiser 200 is not immune to technology and infotainment trends.

Ensuring that its enormously loyal Land Cruiser customers do not feel that their entertainment needs are not being met on those two-week Safaris into Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia or Angola, Toyota has announced an upgrade.

The Land Cruiser 200 VX-R now features an expanded infotainment offering. Audiophiles who are also Toyota luxury SUV customers will be heartened to know that the Land Cruiser 200 now has a 14-speaker JBL audio system.

Superior speaker placement and sound distribution will make your favourite long-distance driving podcast or playlist that much crisper as a listening experience.

Beyond the improved JBL audio, second-row Land Cruiser 200 VX-R customers are in for a treat. Toyota has improved the rear-seat entertainment configuration by adding two 11.6-inch screens.

These screens are fed via multimedia inputs, facilitating whatever media you wish to play for second-row passengers.

Aside from the audio and entertainment upgrades, everything else about the Land Cruiser 200 remains the same. That means a steel ladder frame chassis and virtually unbreakable suspension.

Power is provided by a 4.5-litre V8 turbodiesel, boosting 195 kW and 650 Nm. Toyota’s V8 diesel is proven with decades of harsh use in all African terrain and conditions. Its reliability is beyond reproach.
