Cost and real consumption: Toyota Land Cruiser 2.8 D-4D

How much does the large all-wheel drive SUV with 204 hp four-cylinder diesel cost in everyday life? The cost check provides the answer.

The Toyota has been cruising through world history for seven decades and eleven generations. Test editor Sebastian Renz certifies that it has great off-road talent and a lot of variability, but also reveals weaknesses: "Detours can't stop it, its brakes only do it with difficulty slightly jammed in narrow parking garages, it is one of the most practical cars of all." And what about the fuel and maintenance costs?

Our test consumption

In the test medium, the 204 hp four-cylinder diesel consumed exactly 10.0 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. It is half a liter above the WLTP specification. With today's fuel prices, the costs add up to 14.90 euros for the given distance. If you drive sparingly, like on our eco lap, it will cover 100 kilometers with 7.8 liters at a cost of 11.62 euros. Sportily moving, 12.9 liters flow through the combustion chambers, which are available at the pump for 19.22 euros. The costs are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal mehr-tanken.de (09.12.2021 /diesel: 1.49 euros/litre).

Monthly maintenance costs

The vehicle tax is 720 euros. According to Allianz Direct , liability insurance costs 595 euros per year. An annual fee of 242 euros is due for the partially comprehensive insurance, the fully comprehensive insurance costs an extra 798 euros. In total, the monthly maintenance costs come to 412 euros when the vehicle is used more than 15,000 kilometers a year. If the number of kilometers doubles, 710 euros are due. The depreciation is not included here.

How to test

The auto motor und sport test consumption consists of three differently weighted consumption runs. So-called “commuter consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work, which averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical, approx. 275-kilometre-long eco-lap is included in the rating with 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver lap. The length is roughly the same as the eco lap, but the route includes a larger proportion of motorway and thus higher speeds on average. The basis for calculating the fuel costs is always the price quoted on the "more tanken" portal on the day the article was created.

The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The calculation is based on the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz Direct, including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (accident-free/15,000 km per year/resident in the postcode area 70174/not under 21/partner driver older than 25 years).


In the auto motor and sport consumption test, the 71,600-euro Toyota Land Cruiser 2.8 D-4D with 190 hp ended up with an average value of 10.0 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. This means that the fuel costs for this distance are 14.90 euros. The monthly maintenance costs are 412 euros (15,000 km annual mileage) or 710 euros (30,000 km annual mileage).
