Safari Trend Continues with the Toyota Crown Crossover Landscape


Toyota has unveiled a new special edition of its popular Crown Crossover, named the “Landscape,” exclusively for the Japanese market. This all-terrain trim follows a safari or off-road trend that we’ve seen expressed through vehicles like the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato and the Porsche Dakar. The Landscape edition elevates the Crown’s versatility by integrating off-road capabilities with urban sophistication, marking a significant shift from the traditional full-size sedan to a more rugged, high-riding vehicle.

The Toyota Crown Crossover Landscape distinguishes itself with a roughly one-inch lift and comes equipped with 18-inch wheels wrapped in 245/60 all-terrain tires, perfect for tackling any adventure. It boasts beefy wheel arches with a matte finish and exposed rivets, along with red mud flaps behind each wheel, adding to its rugged charm. An optional roof rack adds to its adventurous spirit, allowing for additional gear storage.

Under the hood, the Landscape edition is powered by the Hybrid Max powertrain, combining a turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder engine with an electric motor on the rear axle. This setup delivers 340 hp, aimed at both efficiency and power for navigating various terrains. The vehicle also comes with a tow hitch capable of pulling up to 1653 pounds.

The exterior of the Crown Crossover Landscape is painted in a unique Urban Khaki shade, complemented by gloss “Gori Gori Black” accents across the hood, trunk and door trim, along with rear fog lights for added visibility. Inside, the cabin maintains its premium feel with minimal changes, except for a special “Landscape” branding on the dashboard, symbolizing the model’s adventurous ethos.

As previously mentioned, the Toyota Crown Crossover Landscape, priced at $45,000 USD, is set to be a Japanese market exclusive, with no mention of a U.S. example coming anytime soon.
