AS Toyota continues to celebrate the 60th anniversary year of its formal establishment in Australia, it has launched the limited-edition LandCruiser 200 Sahara Horizon.
It features bespoke styling treatments including a unique grille with a dark finish, black headlight and smoked chrome front foglight surrounds, semi-aniline leather-accented seats with unique stitching and ‘LandCruiser’ embossed into the backrest, and a black leather-accented heated steering wheel, with just 400 units to be made available.
Toyota Australia vice president Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said the LandCruiser held an iconic place in Australia’s automotive history and the special-edition Horizon model was a celebration of that. “Toyota’s history in Australia started with the original LandCruisers brought into the country to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme back in 1958 and since then, LandCruiser has played a role in the lives of people across the country from the bush to the beach,” Mr Hanley said. “This new special-edition Horizon model offers LandCruiser customers stylish and more distinctive visual appeal in a vehicle that remains as capable and competent on and off the road, wherever they choose to travel.”
Based on the top-of-the-range LC200 Sahara, the new Horizon variant also features unique door trim stitching, black interior and headliner with chrome accents, Horizon badging and the LandCruiser logo displayed in the front and rear puddle lamps. Under the bonnet is a powerful 4.5-litre V8 turbo diesel that drives all four wheels – complete with a full set of low-range ratios – through a six-speed automatic transmission.
In addition to the bespoke styling attributes, the LC200 Sahara Horizon is very well equipped with LED lights, side steps, 18” alloy wheels, moonroof, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control, multi-terrain monitor, premium audio system and rear seat DVD player and satellite navigation. A comprehensive suite of Toyota Safety Sense features includes pre-collision safety system with pedestrian detection, active cruise control and automatic high beam, together with reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
The Toyota LandCruiser Sahara Horizon limited-edition is priced from $129,090.
