Land Cruiser 105 - the next restyling from Toyota
Land Cruiser 105 - one of the modifications of the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser, popularly called "corn" because of the consonance of words. It was issued since 1998.
Differences from previous variations
Externally, this modification is not much different fromprevious - this was the idea of designers. They sought to maintain a recognizable appearance, while increasing the compliance of the car philosophy of this line, the essence of which is the superiority of simplicity over luxury.
The interior of the Land Cruiser 105 has changed quite significantly. Inside the car has become a little longer and now looks more strict and modern.
On the handlebars, AKP handle and front panel appearedwooden elements, and on the center console - metal and carbon inserts. At the same time, the developers tried to preserve the overall stylistics of the model as much as possible.
Domestic buyers are waiting for a small, but still nice, surprise: the car's navigation system is now adapted to Russian roads.
Comfort in the Land Cruiser 105 remained the samelevel, because despite numerous changes, it is still an SUV. Salon is designed for people of medium height, so the basketball players in such a car will be a little uncomfortable. The second row of seats is designed for two passengers. There is also a third row of seats, but sitting there is not as comfortable as in the first two.
In general, the main emphasis of the Japanese was not on convenience, but on reliability, durability and strength - and they succeeded.

To it the automatic box with five transfers is offered. True, the change of gear in it occurs with a slight delay, which is especially noticeable in the sports mode.
Behavior on the road
The car does not behave very well in corners- it is quite inert and reacts poorly to the steering. But on the straight track, everything is fine. The suspension is very smooth, and the noise insulation is simply excellent: even at high speeds, the engine is not audible.
Very qualitatively performed and brakes, which are equipped with an adaptive system of self-recognition of quality and type of coverage.
All described features are designed forimproved off-road vehicle behavior. But that is not all! Land Cruiser 105 is equipped with automatically adjustable stabilizers of lateral stability, which improve its patency.
In addition, there is a new system,which is a kind of cruise control. It allows the car to move at "pedestrian" speeds - one, three or five kilometers per hour. It can also monitor engine power and, if necessary, brakes the towing wheel. Thus, the driver can only steer.
