The 200 Series Altitude utilises the underpinnings of GXL turbo-diesel models, which means the eight-seater is powered by the Japanese brand’s 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo-diesel engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The special edition four-wheeler includes a raft of additions aimed at improving luxury, comfort, convenience and safety. Tony Cramb, Toyota Australia's executive director of sales and marketing, said: “Comprehensive upgrades make the Altitude the ideal choice for those who aspire to a vehicle that delivers an even more luxurious and desirable package.”
The Altitude carries over plenty of kit from the LC200 GXL – seven airbags, reversing camera, vehicle stability and traction control, multi-terrain anti-skid brakes, hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, 17-inch alloys, aluminium side steps, keyless entry and roof rails – but adds a few more niceties.
Leather-accented upholstery, power-adjust front seats and a refrigerated cool box now live inside, while LED fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers and Altitude badging adorns the exterior.
The driver also benefits from high-quality LED Optitron meters and a 4.2-inch multi-information display.
The 200 Series Altitude asks $93,460 (MRP), meaning you get all the extras and convenience features for a mere $4630 premium over a GXL turbo-diesel.
Limited to just 600 vehicles, you best get in quick.
