Toyota Land Cruiser Interior

Reviewers remark that the 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser has an upscale interior, made with real wood trim along the dashboard and steering wheel, and premium leather on the seats and door panels. Most test drivers applaud the Land Cruiser’s excellent build quality and quiet cabin, though a few say its interior doesn’t quite match the Land Rover Range Rover’s or its Lexus LX counterpart.

  • "Inside, there's the ambiance of old-world opulence: the seats and door panels are trimmed in soft leather, real-wood adorns the dash and steering wheel and fit-and-finish is impeccable." -- Left Lane News
  • "Dashboard materials are mostly upscale, although they don't quite have the premium feel that you get with the more expensive Range Rover." -- AutoTrader
  • "With Land Cruiser, engine, wind, and road noise are all subdued." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "The 2013 Land Cruiser's interior is as refined as a Toyota gets, with high-quality materials and excellent fit and finish. It doesn't quite match its Lexus twin, but certainly comes close." -- Edmunds (2013)

Seating

The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser seats eight and comes standard with leather upholstery, heated and ventilated power-adjustable front seats, heated second-row seats and a heated steering wheel. Critics write that the Land Cruiser’s first- and second-row seats are very comfortable, and that legroom is plentiful because the second row slides and reclines. The third row is a much tighter fit, according to auto writers, and they say it is best suited for children. Some automotive journalists find the Land Cruiser to be very quiet at speed.

  • "From behind the wheel, you'll enjoy plenty of power, a comfortable ride, exquisite seats and quiet running, thanks to the Land Cruiser's luxury-levels of sound deadening." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The second-row bench slides and reclines, and it even has its own seat heaters. Although the bench itself is rather low compared to the front chairs, there's ample room to stretch your legs. The third row is also a 3-person bench, making the Land Cruiser a rare 8-passenger vehicle. Access is awkward, and space is at a premium. We wouldn't want adults to be stuck back there on longer trips, but the kids will love it, especially since there's a standard DVD entertainment system." -- AutoTrader
  • "In the Land Cruiser, front- and second-row seats are exceptionally comfortable over long hauls, with plenty of room in every direction. The third row is tight and uncomfortable, like most third rows I encounter." -- Cars.com (2013)

Interior Features

The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser comes standard with push-button start, proximity key, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a rearview camera, quad-zone automatic climate control, navigation, satellite radio, Bluetooth, adaptive cruise control, a USB port, HD Radio, front and rear parking sensors, a 14-speaker JBL audio system, a voice-activated Entune infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen and the Entune App Suite, which provides access to smartphone apps like Pandora Internet radio.

Auto writers report that the Land Cruiser’s touch-screen infotainment system is easy to use, but it can be slow to respond at times. They think the audio, climate and navigation controls are within reach of the driver, and that the gauges are easily visible.

  • "… the features are user-friendly and comprehensive, the layout/design is pleasing to the eye and the fit-and-finish is impeccable." -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)
  • "Large gauges are clearly marked and easy to see. The turn-signal and wiper levers move with smooth precision, as do other switches. All audio, climate, and navigation controls are mounted high on the dashboard within easy reach. The navigation/touchscreen system's functions are intuitive and simple to decipher, though some testers complained that the system was occasionally slow to respond to inputs." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Cargo

The 2015 Land Cruiser has 16.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 43 cubic feet behind the second row and 81.7 cubic feet overall. The Land Cruiser’s cargo space is somewhat low for the class. Split-folding second- and third-row seats come standard. Reviewers are let down by the Land Cruiser’s cargo area, saying the space behind the third row isn’t shaped well for loading the maximum amount of luggage. They add that the third-row seats fold to the sides of the vehicle, taking up potential cargo space. A few critics think the Land Cruiser has ample interior storage space, with a big console and glove box, and multiple map pockets.

  • "However, the Land Cruiser's not the best cargo-hauler, thanks to 3rd-row seats that fold up against the sides of the cargo area, reducing how much you can carry inside." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Second-row seats fold easily. Interior storage is quite good, with large, two-tiered glove and console boxes, a pair of covered console cupholders, and large map pockets with cupholders." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "With the rear seats in place, cargo space is 16 cubic feet. That's about the same capacity as a midsize car's trunk, but ultimately less useful since the Land Cruiser's space is vertical rather than horizontal. The third-row seats do not fold down, nor are they removable. Instead, they fold up against the sides of the cargo bay and still consume space." -- Edmunds (2013)
  • "Another problem is the Land Cruiser's scant cargo space for such a large vehicle." -- Cars.com (2013)
