Toyota has introduced a limited edition variant to the middle of its LandCruiser 200 Series range that bridges the gap between the GLX and VX twin-turbo-diesel models.
Like the recently announced LandCruiser Prado Altitude, the LC200 Altitude is based on the GLX but features premium trim and equipment as found in higher-spec variants.
Just 600 will be available priced at $93,460, which represents a $4630 premium over the GXL.
For that money, you get leather-accented upholstery, power-adjusted front seats a handy refrigerated cool box and aesthetic touches including chrome-tipped front air vents.
The dashboard gains high-quality LED Optitron meters (instrument backlighting) and a 4.2-inch multi-information display accessible through a new steering-wheel switch.
Externally, the Altitude special edition is distinguished by LED foglights, rain-sensing wipers and Altitude badging.
The eight-seat Altitude also comes equipped with GLX standard features including reversing camera, multi-terrain anti-skid brakes, hill-start assist control, trailer sway control, 17-inch alloy wheels, aluminium side steps, keyless "smart" entry and ignition, dual-zone climate-control air-conditioning, roof rails, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display and a six-speaker audio system that includes DAB+ radio.
It’s powered by a 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine with six-speed automatic transmission as found across the range.
Five exterior colours are available - black (no extra cost) and premium white, silver, graphite and blue shades for an extra $550.
