2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser's interior wins praise for its high level of comfort and convenience, even if that comfort doesn't extend to the third row. Still, even in this class of behemoth SUVs, a comfortable third-row is tough to come by.
- "On-the-road and coddled inside is where the 'Cruiser makes its case to the moneyed matron. It might as well be an immense Camry that's nicer to be in, albeit one that has a lot more features along with an "it's safer because it's bigger" feeling." -- Autoblog
- "As impressive as the Land Cruiser's off-road prowess is its ability to transport its occupants in luxury-sedan comfort." -- Edmunds
- "Every convenience item known to the driving public has been integrated in a properly mature fashion, with sensible controls laid out in an unostentatious manner," -- Car and Driver
- "Nicely appointed but not especially fashionable or luxurious - sort of in the same way that the Avalon compares to other luxury cars." -- BusinessWeek
- "Virtually every surface that can be is richly padded except the console, and most materials would look at home in a luxury sedan. Workmanship is likewise impressive." -- Consumer Guide
The Land Cruiser's large interior cabin features an eight-passenger/three-row seating arrangement. The Land Cruiser's front row features power adjustable 10-way driver and eight-way front passenger seats. As with most other three-row vehicles, reviews say that the third row's foldaway 50/50 split-folding bench seat is best reserved for children. The only vehicle in the class that gets overall positive reviews for its third-row seat is the Lincoln Navigator. However, the Navigator can't go off-road like the Land Cruiser can. If you'd rather have happy third-row passengers than off-road adventures, the Navigator may be a good choice, especially since it starts about $10,000 less than the Land Cruiser.
- "Three rows of leather-wrapped seating fit inside, and there remains room for some soft-sided bags even with the third row in use. The first two rows are warm and welcoming; the third - while much better than some ill-thought-out offerings from other makers - is still no place to put your adult friends if you can help it." -- Autoblog
- "Children only in the back, please." -- New York Times
- "Large, comfortable seats with lots of adjustments combine with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel and ample headroom and legroom for first-class accommodations." -- Consumer Guide
- The third-row "provide a knees-up seating position that will be the first choice only for kids." -- Edmunds
Included among the Land Cruiser's long list of standard interior features are leather upholstery, a steering wheel with integrated audio and multi-function display controls, a tilt/slide one-touch power glass moonroof, Smart Key System with push button start, multi-information display, three auxiliary power outlets, and a JBL AM/FM six-disc in-dash CD changer with 14 speakers. These features are typical offerings in the luxury large SUV class. However, most competitors offer them as extra-cost options, while they're standard on the Land Cruiser.
Though the Land Cruiser offers 81.7 cubic-feet of cargo room behind the front seats (43 cubic-feet and 16.1 cubic-feet behind the second and third rows, respectively), the space isn't easy to access as the seats are difficult to fold. Still, the Land Cruiser comes equipped with a wide array of storage features -- including an overhead console, center-console storage area and cooler, as well as 12 cup and bottle holders.
- It "isn't easy to go from 8-passenger seating to maximum cargo space as it is in most SUVs. Oddly, Toyota retained the Land Cruiser's inconvenient side-stowing split 3rd-row seat, the halves of which can't be easily removed and are quite heavy." -- Consumer Guide
