Yesterday Ukrainian journalists have announced the launch of three new products from Toyota that are coming to our market. They are all known off-road and are not afraid of this word, legendary model – Hilux, Land Cruiser 200 and Land Cruiser Prado. The last of them we have already try on and off road, so all details about it you can read in our recent test drive Prado 2.8. Well, with the first two let’s get acquainted closer!

And let’s start with the flagship off-road line-Toyota – Land Cruiser 200. For all time of release of the ninth generation (since 2007) is the first major update. And externally restyled car can be distinguished by modified optics, massive radiator grille with three horizontal slats, a very rough hood. I wonder what his punch in the form of the letter V is designed to remind you of what lies beneath. And this, recall, petrol and diesel V8 engines. Other external upgrades typical of a restyled set: modified bumper, new drawings of wheels (18 or 20 inch), the shape of the moldings on the doors and somewhat different headlights. Returning to the design front, I note that now he vypolnim in the style of a typical American SUV. And head light has been fully led, including the far and foglights.

The interior still impresses with monumentality, but there are a lot of new elements. Among them, the steering wheel, the dashboard, the Central console, which has now settled the multimedia system Toyota Touch Pro with a color 9-inch (top versions), as well as wireless (!) charging phones are Qi. And yet designers slightly streamlined buttons, which nevertheless left a lot. But now they a little easier to navigate. On the other hand, the Land Cruiser 200 to the eyeballs stuffed with all sorts of assistants of movement both on asphalt and off-road, and many of them, the driver can operate (disabled, configured, etc.) the Most interesting of them is the complex Toyota Safety Sense, which monitors road conditions using cameras and radar, and, respectively, and a pre-emptive warning of possible dangerous traffic situations and collision. And the new system of the circular review and some off-road gadgets.

To conquer specially prepared, but not easy off-road we went to the top version of “dvuhsotki” diesel 4.5 D-4D V8. He was, incidentally, also modified, raising the power up to 250 HP, torque of 650 Newtons, and toxicity to Euro-5. 4.6 petrol engine was left unchanged.

Off-road Land Cruiser air suspension does not go – sailing! Not felt neither the speed nor the bumpy dirt road. And takes obstacles effortlessly, know manage to activate different functions. Basically, we included a low range and Crawl Control that allows you to trail a snail’s pace, and to do this will be the machine itself, the driver only has to adjust the speed of the special washer. And at one point involved a curious new feature. To reduce the turning radius or turning, the new Land Cruiser is able to “bite” the rear inner wheel, using it as an anchor. This can only be done on soft ground and only when “crawle”, but the result is great! Confident “dvuhletki” and on rough terrain, and on a diagonal display subjectively she felt more cheerful than Prado. Although the caveat still is – a beautiful bumper and 20-inch wheels not the it to overcome the terrain. In some places (well, it was sand) the machine touched his lip to the front bumper. However, from the driver’s seat, everything looks perfect – the car not only demonstrates a serious off-road potential, but at the same time keeps the driver aware of what is happening. In addition to the circular review there is also a review of the gyroscopic angle – you see it on the camera, so to speak, in real time. In the end, having surely passed all obstacles and it is not straining, I have only one rhetorical question: “Will the use of all these gadgets the owner in real life?”. New Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 200 in our December this year.

Second, and most important debut for Toyota in Ukraine became the new generation pickup Toyota Hilux. Produced in the world since 1968, this is the best selling pickup on the planet! In Ukraine, he appeared relatively recently – in 2010, when the market was virtually divided its main competitors. Therefore, their share has to win in a serious fight! So, in the new generation Hilux has improved and a more rigid spar frame, with enlarged cabin, again, stiffness and insulation, completely redesigned rear leaf suspension, two new diesel engine of its own design, the new six-speed “automatic” and of course, the new design. Gone are some of the external and ill-defined – a strictly Hilux now looks at the world, in his appearance there was “nature”. A serious attitude are designed to emphasize not only the terrible front end design, but also wide wheel arches stamped. And no extenders – all native!

Inside, a new interior, more spacious second row seats and rich equipment, including leather trim, multimedia system Toyota Touch 2 with 7 inch full touch screen. Of course, the latter options are for the maximum configuration of Legend, and the underlying Business will be considerably easier – there is even bumper not painted carbon steel. Thus in the Toyota strive to expand the range of customers – from those who need a workhorse to those who want a smart pickup. But in any case, base in ABS, stabilization system, 7 airbags, air conditioning, heated front seats and all-wheel drive. It, by the way, can be activated even at speeds up to 100 km/h.

We traveled at speeds smaller, but with more interesting obstacles and a more powerful 2.8 diesel D-4D (second – 2.4 150 HP). It develops 177 HP and 450 Newtons of torque, what is considerably better than its 3-litre predecessor. Grabs him with a vengeance, and overall offroad Hilux goes pretty smoothly if you consider that it is the pickup. Of course, it is inferior to its fellow SUVs for comfort, but it’s a real hard worker – takes on Board 5 passengers and 750 kg of cargo in the back and can tow trailers weighing up to 3.2 tonnes. To the driver it was easier, there is even a stabilization system when driving with a trailer, the help system when driving uphill and active traction control (A-TRC), which brakes slipping wheels and transfers the torque on dish non-skid. But even at this Toyota Hilux is perceived as more honest and clear to the driver of the vehicle, so that during the assault the off-road drive does not play the role of spectator, but an active participant that much more fun.

Well, we comprehensively evaluate a new pickup Hilux, when in the very near future will get him on our test drive! Because the car has already appeared at all Toyota dealerships in Ukraine.
