Toyota has taken its LandCruiser to a higher plane, returning its high-value, limited edition Altitude to the 200 Series with a $4630 premium, but Toyota Australia says there is a lot more value built in.
Starting with a GXL diesel eight seat variant as the donor, the Altitude adds premium equipment including leather upholstery, electric front seats, refrigerated cool box and LED instrument cluster.
Only 600 units of the limited edition Altitude will be available for $93,460 plus on-road costs.
It is the fourth time Toyota has used the name for a special model LandCruiser 200 Series with it first appearing in 2011 and subsequently being extended to the Prado last week.
Externally, the Altitude has identifying badges, LED fog lights and rain-sensing wipers.
Inside, there are chrome-edged air vents, brushed alloy-look trim pieces and a 4.2-inch multi-info instrument panel display that can be controlled from a new steering wheel-mounted switch.
Black paint is a no-cost option, while premium white, silver, graphite and blue colours are an additional $550.
The extra equipment adds to the GXL's standard gear that includes satellite navigation, a 6.1-inch multimedia screen, digital radio with six speakers, 17-inch alloy wheels, aluminium side steps, roof rails and dual-zone climate control.
Safety kit carries over from the GXL with seven airbags, a reversing camera, hill-start assist and trailer sway control.
The constant 4WD has a 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission with a dual-range transfer case. Fuel economy is claimed to be an average of 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres.
Capped-price servicing is also offered with the Altitude, with up to six standard visits each costing $280.
The LandCruiser 200 remains a strong seller for Toyota, with a 32.3 per cent jump in sales year-to-date.
This comes off the back of 2851 examples being sold in the first quarter this year, which compares favourably against the 354 Patrol units that Nissan managed.
