Beautiful vehicle. Nice in everyway. Such nice style and a gorgeous interior
Power Ranked 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD worse.
"Not a mechanic. Nor a car builder, so I couldnt tell you why its got more umph, it just does."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD worse.
"If you need to tell someone why a Land rover is better than a Toyota, than they have never been behind the wheel of one."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD worse.
"4x4 is not full-time. Better gas wise. AWD is always AWD, so twice the drive means more fuel even when you dont need the extra traction. "
Value Ranked 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD worse.
"Land rover (any Land rover) is better made and built to last. Toyota not so much. Not to bash Toyota, but the only way to go Toyota is to lease it for 2 years. After that you dont want it. Not in New England anyway."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser AWD worse.
"Just a better car. To compare to a Toyota, would be like comparing a Cadillac quality to a Kia."

Power Ranked 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL 550 worse.
"Smooth and strong up to 70. The GL550 is very strong as well, just didnt feel as refined. "
Value Ranked 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL 550 better.
"The GL550 pulls harder throughout the power band, has a decent interior and can be picked up pretty cost effectively. "
