GXL and VX grades get added safety and assistance technologies, though prices are unchanged.
Toyota Australia has launched an upgraded LandCruiser 200 Series with new features added to the volume-selling GXL and VX models for the 2019 model year.
Highlights include the introduction of front and rear parking sensors on the GXL, along with a new colour 4.2-inch multi-function driver’s display and leather-accented multi-function steering wheel on the mid-tier grade.
The VX, meanwhile, now gets several assistance technologies previously reserved for the top-shelf Sahara model. For 2019 the VX gets blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a multi-terrain monitor incorporating a surround camera system, along with auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors.
Despite the additional equipment, pricing remains unchanged for all LandCruiser 200 models for the 2019 model year, starting at $77,890 for the five-seat GX turbo-diesel, topping out at $119,930 for the flagship Sahara fitted with the V8 turbo-diesel. All prices exclude on-road costs.
The upgrades will likely help build on the LandCruiser 200’s steady sales growth, which managed 929 registrations for the month of September and now sits at 10,381 units year-to-date – an increase of 10.6 per cent on September 2017 and 8.4 per cent YTD.
