About the coolest thing I’ve driven recently. It’s a Toyota Land Cruiser van, and I’m a bit smitten.
Just look at it! Steel wheels, cloth seats and nary a sop to glitz, glamour or gadgetry. It’s transport at its most workmanlike and, in a market awash with the kind of mixed messages an electric-performance-SUV-coupe can’t help but transmit, there’s an undeniable appeal to this vehicle’s complete and utter lack of BS.
Its recipe is simple – tons of space at the back and a big, torquey diesel up front driving all four wheels below – and its aesthetic simpler still. And all from around £27,000 if you’re not paying VAT, or just over £33,000 if you are. Which is nearly nine grand cheaper than the new Land Rover Defender van.
But I don’t get alloys?
Why would you want them? Shiny wheels will stop
