Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop

The Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop has (up to) six window seats and a pop-up roof. These classic safari models are extremely powerful and reliable and with no electronics, made for the bush. Hence note that the driving comfort on asphalted roads and features like A/C and quality of the speakers can't be compared to cars manufactured nowadays.

Toyota Landcruiser - Hardtop specifications

  • Model: Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop 75/78.
  • Year of manufacture: 1990 - 2009.
  • Capacity: Six window seats. The vehicle can accommodate four people with camp gear and personal luggage when camping.
  • Gearbox: Manual.
  • Engine: 1HZ 6-cylinder engine.
  • Tank capacity: 2x 80 Litre.
  • Fuel: Diesel. 
  • Fuel consumption: 7-8 km/l.
  • 4Wheel Drive: Differs per vehicle. How to engage the 4WD is explained in the practical information booklet in your vehicle. Having a Landcruiser with a diff-lock is rare. Note that we have disconnected the diff lock in all our Landcruisers. The standard 4x4 is strong enough.
  • Spare tyres: 2.
  • Tyre pressure: depending on the number of people and load, 30 PSI in the front and 35 PSI in the back. You don’t need to do anything further with this. The tyre pressure comes well-adjusted.

The interior and tools

  • Pop-up roof: Yes. The pop-up roof can’t be used anymore when a rooftop tent is mounted.
  • Inverter: Yes.
  • Dual battery (for the fridge): No. The fridge can only be used while the engine is running.
  • Water tank: No.
  • A/C: No. The reason is that the A/C can get blocked easily as a result of the bumpy and dusty roads, and it's very challenging to fix this in the bush. Drive with your windows open. 
  • Audio: Radio with small speakers, a USB, and an audio port. Bring your own audio cable (mini jack) to play music from your phone.
  • Booth: The booth is small. We advise packing your luggage in soft duffle bags as they pack easier than suitcases. If your travel group is six, you will store some bags between the seats inside the car. In case you go camping, the vehicle can accommodate four people with camp gear and luggage. 
  • Rooftop tent: This vehicle can support one rooftop tent.
  • Tools: Wheel spanner, towing rope, jumper cables, high-lift jack, shovel, fire extinguisher, reflector triangles, and first aid kit.
  • Extras: Bradt Travel Guide, roadmap, practical information booklet.
