Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be an excellent bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide range of options, so you can pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Land Cruiser. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the 2020 Land Cruiser is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the 2020 Land Cruiser with a four-cylinder engine or a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly 2020 Land Cruiser Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Land Cruiser is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Land Cruiser also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Land Cruiser with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Land Cruiser supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from across the way.
The 2020 Land Cruiser can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re searching for something with a little more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Land Cruiser might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Land Cruiser is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Land Cruiser Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features located on the upper trim levels may be added to the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL speakers combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Land Cruiser stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Land Cruiser includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat do not need to be scooted all the way forward.
