For better protection of the passenger compartment, the LR4 uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The Land Cruiser uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the LR4 and the Land Cruiser have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available collision warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

On the EPA test cycle the LR4 gets better fuel mileage than the Land Cruiser (15 city/19 hwy vs. 13 city/18 hwy).

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the LR4’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The LR4’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Land Cruiser’s standard 60 series tires. The LR4’s optional tires have a lower 50 series profile than the Land Cruiser’s 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the LR4 has standard 19-inch wheels. Only 18-inch wheels are available on the Land Cruiser. The LR4 offers optional 20-inch wheels.

For superior ride and handling, the Land Rover LR4 has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Toyota Land Cruiser has a solid rear axle, with a non-independent rear suspension.

The front and rear suspension of the LR4 uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Land Cruiser, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The LR4 has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The LR4’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the LR4’s wheelbase is 1.4 inches longer than on the Land Cruiser (113.6 inches vs. 112.2 inches).

The LR4 HSE handles at .74 G’s, while the Land Cruiser pulls only .72 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The LR4 HSE executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Land Cruiser (28.3 seconds @ .6 average G’s vs. 28.9 seconds @ .58 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the LR4’s turning circle is 1.1 feet tighter than the Land Cruiser’s (37.6 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the LR4 has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Land Cruiser (9.4 vs. 9.1 inches), allowing the LR4 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The LR4 is 4.8 inches shorter than the Land Cruiser, making the LR4 easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Unibody construction makes the LR4’s chassis much stiffer, which contributes to better handling, and enables softer springs to be used for a better ride. Unibody construction’s stiffness also contributes to better durability and less body squeaks and rattles. The Land Cruiser doesn’t use unibody construction, but a body-on-frame design.

The power windows standard on both the LR4 and the Land Cruiser have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the LR4 is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Land Cruiser prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the LR4 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the LR4 offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The LR4’s power mirror controls are mounted on the door for easy access. The Land Cruiser’s power mirror controls are on the dash, hidden behind the steering wheel, where they are awkward to manipulate.

The Land Rover LR4 outsold the Toyota Land Cruiser by almost three to one during the 2015 model year.
