The Toyota FJ Cruiser which was launched a decade ago, is a lifestyle SUV, a retro styled vehicle, modelled on the lines of Toyota’s FJ40 that was sold in U.S. till the 1980s. The car is uniquely styled, and stands out in a crowd of modern SUVs and crossovers. The FJ Cruiser has a very unique personality, with its upright windscreen and tail lamps that jut out of the body and body cladding all around.
The interiors have an old-school design, keeping with the retro-theme of the FJ Cruiser. The interiors are function and all the controls are neatly laid out. And as a 5 seater SUV with generous proportions, there certainly is no shortage for space inside this SUV. But despite its generous interior dimensions, the rear seat occupants still might feel a little claustrophobic, as the windows on the uniquely designed rear doors – which open in a very unconventional fashion (they are rear hinged!) are quite small, and do not let in too much light inside.
The FJ Cruiser has a very powerful 4.0L V6 engine that makes a punchy 270HP (275HP on the Xtreme variant) and 380NM of torque, which makes this SUV really quick on its feet. But changing lanes or carving corners is a very jittery affair, as the high ground clearance, off-road oriented suspension make this a SUV meant to be driven off-road, not on the track! And this engine is not too efficient either, and that is where the dual fuel tank (72L &87L) with combined capacity of 159L really help achieve a decent range. However, the massive torque and the Low ratio gearbox help the FJ Cruiser clear obstacles and tricky situations quite easily making it a commendable off-roader.
There are two variants on offer – GXR and the Xtreme, both of which come with a safety kit consisting of ABS, Dual front airbags, ESP, Active-Traction control, differential lock (which helps the SUV’s off-road ability) and crawl control too. Even otherwise, both the variants are decently equipped, as standard features include cruise control, rear view camera, navigation system, and music system with 8 speakers and a really impressive off-road ability.
