The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser comes with four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.New Heritage Edition trim reduces seating to five and adds bronze BBS wheels and retro exterior badges.

Pros
Very capable off-road
Comfortable ride for a large truck-based SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

Cons
Third-row seats are cramped and impinge on cargo space
Touchy brake pedal makes it hard to stop smoothly
Poor fuel economy even by large SUV standards
Limited smartphone connectivity

The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser is a bruiser with few luxuries for the money, but we love it anyway.

Pros
Legendary off-roader
Good power
Comfortable inside
Plush ride

Cons
Wildly overpriced
Very thirsty
Lousy third row
Curiously short on luxury

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Turbocharged 500-hp V8 moves the SQ8 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
Surprisingly comfortable given its performance bent
Stylish, distinctive exterior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Driver's seat has few adjustments
Limited interior storage

For its sophomore year, the SQ8 soldiers on with only one change: It now comes standard with a built-in toll-road-payment transmission feature.Upgrading to the Prestige trim costs $5500 but adds a host of driver-assistance and luxury features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, a head-up display with navigation guidance, fancier LED exterior lighting elements, soft-close doors, headlamp washers, heated rear seats, and power rear sunshades. If none of that sounds particularly important to you, save the cash and go with the Premium Plus. All SQ8 models come with the best performance-enhancing features Audi can throw at them, so no matter which one you choose, you're getting the same driving experience.

PROS
Powerful V-8 engine,
high-quality interior trimmings,
aggressive exterior design.

CONS
Some may regret not going with the RS Q8,
braking performance could be better,
thirsty powertrain.

Pros
Sports-car fast
Posh and spacious interior
Plenty of infotainment tech

Cons
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Cheaper Q8 50TDI makes more sense
Petrol-powered alternatives are more dramatic
