Al Futtaim launches Land Cruiser 2012 in UAE
Al Futtaim Motors, distributors of Toyota in the UAE, has launched the new 2012 Land Cruiser in the UAE.
The 2012 Land Cruiser features several changes inspired by evolving customer demands and continues the legacy of being one of the most popular off-roading vehicles in the region. Fresh elements to Land Cruiser's exterior and interior design continues to convey a rugged yet luxurious image while delivering high performance and durability aided greatly with new technology for advanced off-roading.
The new Land Cruiser was presented by Sadayoshi Koyari, Chief Engineer, Product Planning Group and Simon Frith, Managing Director Al Futtaim Motors at a ceremony that included hands-on demonstrations as well as on-road and off-road driving experiences.
Frith said: "The Land Cruiser has an enduring relationship with the people of this nation. Emiratis have even given the Land Cruiser pick- up a special name Abu Shanab. This clearly demonstrates the intimacy this brand has with the people living in the UAE."
The AC vent is also plated creating a more luxurious atmosphere. The steering wheel with a wood grain/leather combination is available and larger wheel switches have been adopted to enhance ease of use, along with a larger transmission shift knob, door handles and audio switches. Air conditioned seats have also been added.
Newly rugged exterior
It is at the front of the vehicle that the external styling changes on the new 2012 Land Cruiser are most evident, yet still reflecting the heritage of the Land Cruiser identity. The front bumper has been redesigned with enlarged overhangs, creating a much thicker front bumper that expresses the Land Cruiser's power.
The radiator grill has been redesigned to create a much rounder surface; a design which creates a powerful and finely-crafted image. The headlamps have been modified with HID low beams and integrated LED lights in the front of the vehicle.
The 2012 Land Cruiser also comes with the option of a swing back door, with the aim of enhancing accessibility to the 3rd row seats. The wheels have been redesigned, with larger 18in aluminum wheels. Other changes include LED positioning lights incorporated within the headlights and chrome finished sides to the front and rear combination clusters and wider wheel flares. The 2012 Land Cruiser also comes in three new colours: White, Attitude Black and Light Blue.
