Your first look at the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series: Spy pic reportedly captures off-roader testing - but you'll have to squint...

Is this the new Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series? (Image credit: Mag X)

The incoming Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series has reportedly been snapped testing in Japan, but you'll have to squint to make it out.

The blurry low-res pic, uploaded to a forum for Japan's Mag X, reveals less than we'd like it to, but if it is legitimate, it at least shows the replacement for the 200 Series is well on its way.

The pic was snapped on Japan's Tomei Expressway on the island of Honshū - around 200kms from Tokyo - with the heavily camouflaged 300 Series undergoing on-road evaluation.

It marks the first time we've seen imagery of the new model, with its development closely guarded secret within Toyota.

But all will be revealed soon, with the new LandCruiser 300 Series expected to debut - at least in Japan - in April 2021.

CarsGuide continues to understand that Australian cars will receive a six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, with any four-cylinder options likely destined for overseas markets.

There is also reportedly a brace of turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 petrol engines - one hybrid, the other not - but neither are expected to be available in our market from launch.
