Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MU-X may look and feel a bit more basic than the Everest or Fortuner, but its tough Isuzu truck underpinnings is this SUV’s secret weapon. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine.

Pros
Great new engine
Capable off-roader
Decent third row

Cons
Cabin is starting to age
Boot is smaller than some rivals
No advanced safety equipment

Like the D-MAX ute on which it's based, the evolution of Isuzu UTE's MU-X seven-seat SUV has remained relatively slow, its latest update headlined by extra torque from its 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (now 130kW and 430Nm, up from 380Nm) and a new six-speed automatic transmission (previously five).

Pros
Rugged and practical
Very comfy ride
Drop-down rear video unit

Cons
Lacking some new safety tech
Turbo lag from a standing start
Rather basic cab trim

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is unchanged.The 2018 Land Cruiser comes fully loaded apart from a rear-seat entertainment system. It's likely something you can skip if you use tablets and other devices to keep your family entertained.

PROS
One of the most off-road-capable SUVs around
Surprisingly comfortable ride and capable handling for a big SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

CONS
A Toyota badge at a price that matches luxury marques
Poor fuel economy
Second- and third-row seats lack space and versatility

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is a conundrum: it’s way better on-road than its off-road credentials suggest it should be, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.

Pros
Proper off-road cred
Great ride quality
Decadent interior
Dripping with personality and heritage
Strong V-8

Cons
Ponderous steering
Ghastly expensive
The Lexus LX 570 exists, too
Miserable fuel economy
Do you really need all those off-road toys?
