The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid has earned praises thanks to its mixture of design, reliable handling and a rich cabin filled out with cool technology features.The Land Cruiser will receive a powerful hybrid engine, but it can also boast with sheet metal updates and with some cool new technologies. We are hoping that the extra juice added to the engines will produce smoother, but more exiting driving experience.
Exterior and Interior
The design language we have come to like is still present in the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid, with specific updates.The new take on the front piece seems quite a step forward when compared to the Land Cruiser’s predecessor. It includes a redesigned and muscular hood, along with the more prominent grille, which still has the traditional outline. The entire theme incorporates the restyled headlamp accompanied with standard led inserts.
The pleasant design changes are introduced in a shape of redesigned, more prominent, character line, which, along with the new muscular fenders, adds an extra edginess. The passengers can enjoy the scenery much better due to a restyled window pillars, while the rounded fenders look better integrated into the beltline than the last time.
The rear of the Land Cruiser had a major overhaul, which affected the general appearance of the back section as well as slight modifications of each specific section presenting an overall much sportier design. While some will appreciate the molded bumper, they will probably feel disappointed about the absence of the new taillights.
The redesigned cabin follows cues from other models in the Toyota’s current lineup, delivering more space around the legs and heads than the previous model, with updated materials to match the overall classy look.
Everybody will appreciate the number one job the Toyota did on the sheet metal and the cabin.
The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid will boast a few improvements in terms of fuel consumption, the plug-in unit offering 16 mpg combined (14 city/19 highway). The drivetrain got a brand new all-wheel drive to help with all the steep inclines.The towing capacity should be around 8,100 pounds.The new styling and well-appointed cabin may be quite a benefit, but a real improvement will be a much more effective powertrain.
