When it comes to off-road capabilities, nothing beats a Toyota. For decades, this esteemed brand has been the doyenne of off-roading cars, producing one of the finest go-anywhere-do-anything vehicles of modern times, the Land Cruiser.
However, Toyota is famous for its innovation. The brand is constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible. So, rather than settling for just another off-road Toyota, the company has given its long-term flagship SUV a relaunch. The urban SUV lover hasn’t been left out either, with the advent of the sharp new Raize compact SUV.
The new Land Cruiser – the legacy continues
With the strapline 'Lead Every Journey', the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser is bigger, better, and ready to meet all challenges head-on. Over decades, this epic vehicle has been refined and tweaked until the 2022 model is one of the top SUV options in the world. You get a choice between a punchy 3.5-litre with twin turbos or a heavyweight 4-litre V6 engine. Both deliver exceptional torque and horsepower to make dune busting a breeze. The twin turbochargers on the 3.5ltr option give you that extreme boost when needed. An astonishing 200kg has been trimmed from its overall weight, making this lighter, stronger version of the classic Land Cruiser even faster.
Inside, you have a raft of new features to keep drivers and passengers happy. A tri-zone climate control and extensive infotainment system are easily controlled from the console. If you're heading off-road (and why wouldn't you? This is a Toyota Land Cruiser, after all), then the 360 3D Multi-Terrain Monitor gives you the confidence to tackle even the most challenging trails.
The Toyota Raize – SUV practicality meets classic urban styling
But what about urban SUV lovers? Well, Toyota has made sure that city adventurers are well catered for with the all-new Toyota Raize 2022. This spritely little compact SUV is equally at home scampering around the city streets as it is hitting the open trails or mountain tracks. A choice between a 1-litre or feisty 1.2litre engine makes this one of the best compact SUVs for fuel economy. A host of special features make the Toyota Raize a pleasure to drive, including Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Start Assist and Tire Pressure Monitor systems on the 1.2-litre option.
The Raize has a bold appearance with angular bumper corners and little flourishes that give it real road presence. Inside, the infotainment centre includes Android Auto and Apple Carplay and a simple yet practical readout that keeps you up to date on your average fuel consumption and driving range. With room for five people and a boot that can easily take a weekend’s camping equipment, the Raize can shift from urban runabout to adventure tourer in a heartbeat.
