3.0 out of 5

Since the Toyota Land Cruiser is so new, it’s yet to get confirmed MPG figures. It’s powered by a sole 2.8-litre diesel engine, however, and is relatively heavy, so it’s safe to say it won’t be the cheapest-to-run car out there. It’s not designed with fuel economy as a main priority, but Toyota has said a mild-hybrid version of the same diesel engine will be introduced in 2025, which will improve the Land Cruiser’s efficiency.

A full-hybrid version of the Toyota Land Cruiser will be sold in the USA, but it’s expected this version will not make its way to the UK for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately that means the UK-spec Land Cruiser is likely to produce higher CO2 emissions, so we wouldn’t expect it to sit in a low Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band, meaning it’s not likely to be a great choice as a company car.

How efficient is the Toyota Land Cruiser in the real world?

While the Toyota Land Cruiser’s fuel economy is yet to be tested in official WLTP conditions, we averaged around 25mpg on our test route. This was a mix of on-road and off-road driving, with the latter being detrimental to fuel economy, so a slightly better figure could be possible in day-to-day use.

What will the Toyota Land Cruiser cost to insure?

Insurance groups for the Toyota Land Cruiser are yet to be confirmed, but offroaders like these tend to be expensive to insure. The Land Rover Defender sits between groups 34 to 48 out of 50, and we’d expect the Land Cruiser to sit somewhere within this scale.
