LHD Toyota Land cruiser 200 Exterior
By Jack Kates
Toyota designed the LandCruiser 200 to be Earth’s greatest 4WD – prestigious, adventurous, and trust-worthy. It has all the grunt and muscle you’d expect, yet it’s also an incredibly comfortable car on the tarmac.
The exterior of the LandCruiser 200 has been styled to reflect its status as the premier four-wheel drive in the country. Rugged yet luxurious, with intelligent design features and an unmistakable presence, the LandCruiser 200 is as eye-catching in the city centre as it is in the red centre.One look at Toyota Land Cruiser 200 and one cannot help himself but be impressed with its rugged style and sleek lines. Its rear spoiler adds flair while improving aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. All its essentials are seamlessly integrated. The tow bar, for instance is seamlessly integrated into the rear bumper unobtrusively available for service when needed. Headlamps, clearance lamps and front turn signals are all integrated into the casing, calibrated for optimum visual quality. Its alloy wheels provide functionality with looks. Large multi-reflector type fog lamps add style and are incredibly useful in foggy conditions.
Styling that commands attention
Just one look at the Land Cruiser 200 and you know you’re looking at a 4×4 with a distinguished pedigree. Its rugged style and sleek lines make it the ultimate statement in dynamic and luxurious manoeuvrability. For example, adopted across the range is a body-coloured rear spoiler, which not only adds some aggressive flair, it also improves aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. And so it is with the rest of the vehicle—it’s never just about looks. Everything about the design combines eye-catching aesthetics with the ultimate in functionality, ensuring that LandCruiser continues to build on its enviable reputation as the most trusted and desirable 4×4 on Earth.
Seamless integration of the essentials
There when you need it, gone when you don’t. The tow bar on the cleverly designed LandCruiser 200 series is integrated into the rear bumper, including a colour-coded cover which conceals it when not in use. When it does come out to play, however, you’ll still be able to enjoy LandCruiser’s legendary pulling power—up to 3,500kg for a braked trailer and 750kg un-braked
Reinventing the wheel
Of course, without the wheel, none of LandCruiser’s significant achievements would have been possible. And to help you make some significant achievements of your own, the LandCruiser 200 series comes with ruggedly designed 17 inch alloy wheels, fitted with 285/65 R17 Dunlop tyres
Even more bright thinking
The large combination headlamps on the LandCruiser 200 function to the highest degree suggested by their bold design. Headlamps, clearance lamps and front turn signals are all integrated into the casing, calibrated for optimum visual quality. Mud on the lens? Don’t worry. The Sahara is fitted with retractable headlamp cleaners which neatly disappear into the front bumper once the dirt has been washed away.
Off the road, in the air
LandCruiser will tackle any surface you throw at it, and quite a few atmospheric conditions, too. When fog and mist impact driving conditions, it’s comforting to know that the large multi-reflector type fog lamps fitted standard on the Land Cruiser VX and Land Cruiser Sahara have the cut-through necessary to aid you on your journey. They also add a touch of styling luminance to the front end.
