New Landcruiser is most powerful yet

TOYOTA has unveiled its new Landcruiser Amazon - the most powerful version of the off-road flagship to date. A new V8 petrol engine and revised six-cylinder turbodiesel will power the restyled and repackaged off-roader when it reaches UK showrooms in April.

The new 4.7-litre petrol engine develops 232bhp and 310lb-ft of torque and is capable of sprinting from 0-60mph in 9.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 109mph. The 4.2-litre diesel is an equally muscular unit, generating 201bhp and 317lb-ft of torque at just 1,800rpm. Inside, there's room for seven adults and their luggage and standard equipment includes cruise control, remote central locking, a six-disc CD multichanger, air conditioning, alloy wheels and side steps.

On the safety front, four-wheel ABS brakes, dual front airbags and three-point seatbelts on all seven seats are standard. The new Amazon debuts at next month's Geneva Motor Show before going on sale at the end of April. Prices will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
