There’s nothing small about the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser. From its size — it can carry eight passengers — to its starting price of $77,955, this is a ginormous three-row SUV. The Land Cruiser does have two small numbers attached to it: 13/18 mpg city/highway. With a 5.7-liter V-8 engine, those fuel-economy numbers probably aren’t too much of a shock, though.
Here’s another number: three. Three child-safety seats fit across the Land Cruiser’s second row, making it one of a handful of cars that can handle this feat.
For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide 30 rear-facing infant-safety seat, a Britax Roundabout convertible child-safety seat and a Graco high-back TurboBooster seat.
The front seats are adjusted to a comfortable position for a 6-foot driver and a 5-foot-8 passenger. The three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat sits behind the driver’s seat, and the infant seat and convertible seats are installed behind the passenger seat. We also install the infant seat in the second row’s middle seat with the booster and convertible in the outboard seats to see if three car seats will fit. If there’s a third row, we install the booster seat and a forward-facing convertible.
