We've been building our own little off road track, see how a my Defender 110 2.4 and Dad's Land Cruiser 200 series V8 compare!

Which do you prefer?

      The land Rover will break down. The Land Cruiser won't. Clear win for the Toyota if you ask me.

      If you want to go to Africa, get a Land Rover. If you want to get back, get a Land Cruiser!

      Two great vehicles, but a proper comparison to the no nonsense Defender is the no nonsense Land Cruiser 76 and a proper comparison to the 200 Series is the Range Rover.

      For off-road I prefer defender because live axle more wheel articulation better traction control better approach and departure angle and it is compact.for occasionally off-road and focus on paved road the land cruiser is far better because better ride quality,better handling,very reliable.any ways it's unfair to compare LC 200 with defender.LC 70 , jeep wrangler robbicon and denfender are the perfect match maybe G Wagon too but I am not sure.

      although you lowered the volume for the Land Rover you increased that of the Land cruiser

      Land Cruiser all day Long!
      There really is no comparison just one word reliability...
      The Land cruiser takes it everyday.
      Nice video too bad it wasn't a 76 series.

      when the defender breaks, you can fix it yourself within a few minutes, when the cruiser breaks, it's full of electrical crap, so off to the dealership

      That extreme luxury Toyota is really impressive also in off road, not just in high-way. It is amazing to see how a so heavy and comfortable car can easily compete with a pure off road car like the Defender. Really amazing.

      Cars are very impressive now, yes. The Range Rover and Discovery 4 are too even better examples of this.

      Toyota, imagine crashing a 110 on the road, you would probably come off much much worse than in the LC.

      +bowser123ism thats your opinion. In truth, we've had the Toyota stuck a LOT more than my defender, but i admit thats mostly due to its weight and standard road tyres. (note: Land Rover fit AT tyres only to the defender, this is not even an option with the 200 Series Cruiser in the UK)

      +FJZ80 BOY defender's got something that can't be explained that the Land Cruiser doesn't have though! In my opinion at least. (76,78,79,80 cruisers has it too, but don't think the 100/200 series had it)

      +landcruising.im A bit heavy and just lacking a little 'character' for me compared to my defender, but an incredible piece of engineering though. Surprising how slow a car powered by a 4.5L turbo V8 can be!

      If you will change the stock tires to off road tires, it will perform off road, but not with the street tires which are only to get slightly better gas mileage.

      I'd hate to see the land cruiser MPG on off road tyres then!

      It doesn't manage 25 to the gallon now (even on the trip computer!!)

      Even my defender manages 29-31 overall.

      Surely it's a bit un fair on the cruiser as it has road tyres on? but still, awesome video. both proved themselves to be excellent cars LD

      I suppose, but it also has twice as many cylinders and some very clever electronics too. Not so much a comparison of closely matched rivals, but a review of the two cars we have. As you say, both were very impressive!

      Yes I have huge respect for the land cruiser. Just find my defender has a bit more character and makes me smile more, but each to their own. Both very impressive vehicles, which we didn't get anywhere near the edges of their ability here.

      Hello does the cruiser have the regular suspension or the AHC? Great video

      about 4 years ago
    • David Whittaker
      David Whittaker In reply to b pospolyta

      Yes. I think I'm the UK we only really get the top of the range model with the adjustable height suspension etc, there didn't seem to be any options available for the car. In Aus, SA etc they do lower spec GX ones with double door at the rear etc but as far as I know we only have the top of the range here, trying to compete with the Range Rover etc

      Yeah the land cruisers the all-singing, all-dancing one with hydraulic suspension etc. that's the only one we get here in the UK (no GX models etc)
