Nissan Patrol TI-L vs Toyota LandCruiser 300 GX 2022 Motoring Minute Review

Toyota VS Nissan – Last week I was driving electric cars ideal for the city. This week I’m driving two large 4WD family wagons that are better suited to outback touring or towing. The Nissan Patrol and Toyota LandCruiser.

Both will take a large family in comfort.

Both will tow a caravan or boat with ease

The Nissan has a big old school 5.6L V8 petrol engine that is thirsty, the LandCruiser a newer 3.3L V6 Turbo Diesel engine that is a little more frugal on fuel.

Neither are fun to park in the local shopping centre car park, but both are great outback.

The Nissan is in need of a refreshed interior design, the LandCruiser is brand new and while fresh, it could have gone further.

The big difference is price. The Nissan Patrol is priced from around $82,000 to $95,000. The 300 series LandCruiser from just under $90,000 to a little under $139,000. All are plus the usual costs.

The Nissan is outstanding value given that you would need to add around $20,000 to match the level of features in a LandCruiser.

However buyers will buy what suits them and history has shown that usually a Nissan Buyer will not buy a Toyota, nor will a Toyota buyer purchase a Nissan.
