Toyota LandCruiser 200 Altitude Special Edition is set to strengthen its position in the automotive world because it gains more in-demand features. First of all, the new special edition is offered with premium paint - metallic or pearlescent, as a standard, and even more – it will be equipped with 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and a range of luxury interior appointments.

Those who will chose the eight-seat special-edition wagon will be cosseted in a black leather-accented interior with premium steering wheel and gearshift knob. Furthermore, they will have the comfort and convenience of driver and front-passenger seats with power-operated slide, recline, height and cushion tilt. In addition, driver's seat also is equipped with power lumbar adjustment.

Next, the occupants can now keep their drinks and snacks fresh, because of the addition of a cooler box within the centre console. More importantly, this special edition LandCruiser is powered by Toyota's twin-turbo V8 common-rail diesel engine. The unit is matched with an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission.

The powerplant is capable of generating 266 horsepower (195kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft). The fuel economy it achieves is rated at just 10.3 litres/100km.

Other updates included are the trailer sway control which is created with the aim to assist if a towed vehicle becomes unsettled by crosswinds, bumpy roads or sharp turns of the steering wheel; eight airbags; vehicle stability and active traction control.

There is also present 6.1-inch LCD screen which shows the images from the reversing camera and satellite navigation system. LandCruiser special-editionis fitted with a Multi-Terrain ABS which adapts to driving conditions by detecting engine output, acceleration and wheel speed.

It also includes Toyota's off-road cruise-control system called CRAWL. The latter has five low-speed settings and disengages at speeds over 25km/h. It also automatically manages the engine output and brake hydraulic pressure.

At last, the choice of exterior colours which is currently offered to the customers for the Toyota LandCruiser 200 Altitude Special Edition is the following: Crystal Pearl and Eclipse Black, Silver Pearl, Graphite and Shimmer.
