This is BAAP of all cars & SUV.

I am based in Dubai & last month got myself a brand new LC VXR V8  top of the range with built in Navigation system. I must tell you that my previous car was also a landcruiser V6old shape, so i can understand the difference between th old & the new one very well.

The new model looks More bigger & the interior is more spacious, it alo has a feel of luxury inside, which was lacking in the older model. The major difference is in the ride quality & fuel effeciency.

Ride has become much more quieter & the engine now goes more distance with the same amount of fuel at least 20% more is my assumption. Being based in Dubai we are really not much worried about the fuel cost.

It  requires no keys to start & stop the vehicle, you carry an electronic key in your pocket, press the brake pedal & gently press the ignition button, the car comes to life to shut the engine just do the same, amazing.

The GPS navigation system is very helpfull & I used it on some long trips to locate some areas & it was really helpful.

Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phone is very helpful & it really makes life easy as you can take calls on the cars in built hands free.

The rear view camera comes on the movement you put the reverse gear & the parking sensors warn you of any thing if they get within half a meter of the car makin life easy to park & reverse this huge car.

There are a lots of other goodies, which I am still trying to figure out, but over all it is best value for money when you compare it with other SUVS or cars at least in the Middleeast. My car came at a cost of AED 280,000 on  road , which is roughly IRS 36 lacs. At that price it is surely vaule for money, but i AM REALLY SORY FOR THE PEOPLE OF INDIA WHO WILL HAVE PAY AROUND 85 LACS TO OWN THIS CAR.

YOU see the problems is of maintainence in a mercedes. Mr. Wife drives C 230 which is done only 30,000kms, but i have spent 5 times more on maintainence than the Land cruiser. When you look at it from that point of view Land cruiser is any day a clear winner. Actually it comes with a driving pleasure, all fancy gadgets & of course Peace of mind.

I think it can be compared with Mercedes 'M'-class which also one of the best SUV'S.
