    I guess you have never been to Beverly Hills, Park Avenue, Mayfair, Kensington, Hamptons, South Beach etc. The REAL well-healed people in the west/world wouldn't be caught dead driving a Land Cruiser, Pajero, or a Nissan Patrol.

    I think u misunderstood what I was saying. LC is only good of road. And is far to big for city use. LC is no sports SUV .. U can push an LC to its limit at low speed. Sports SUVs are a different breed.

    Land cruiser has the best reviews in any country, it is always ranked in top few. After more then 60 years of research its standing here.
    2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Reviews, Pictures and Prices | U.S. News Best Cars
    I've been to many countries and found Land cruiser standing with marked impression among the learned. In US, fellows got BMW, Durango etc but all show better affiliation for LC. Its the price of 80K$ that restricted, not the specs or performance.

    Those fellows must be Desi. The only Japanese car well-healed people in the West actually care about is the Prius due to its green credentials. If you could let me know which particular areas of US, UK or any other country/city of Europe have you seen posh people driving Land Cruisers then I will be able to understand your point better. I have never seen anyone arriving to Harrods or Barneys in a Land Cruiser in my whole life. Not sure which US or UK have you witnessed where the well-to-do people prefer Land Cruisers over Range Rovers. Beats me.

    Although the LC may be an awesome beast off road but on the Motorway I had no problem overtaking an LC doing 160km/h. It was probably its top speed. Now a Porsche Cayenne would be really tough to beat! And how many of LC or Cayenne owners seriously go offroad? So the charm is in showing off your SUV to friends and relatives and not its off road capability. Here the Cayenne or Macan win over the LC.

    Pakistanis are desis generally speaking. Talk of land cruiser in the world, not to posh or the west people. I've stayed in Germany, France, UK, you will see cw tiguan in germany and Peugeot,Citroen C4 in france, range rover in uk.
    Fazalwahab trend is for usa, I take range rover vs LC to check worldwide. This wikipedia article has world sales numbers since commencing of the model with references.
    List of automobile sales by model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Land Rover Range Rover has 1 Million unit sales in 40 years, 25k units in one year and Land cruiser is 5Million in 60 years, 83K units in a year. More liking means more sales by whatever kind of people or the countries.
    Land cruiser is not for racing, officially can go up 220 km/hr.

    If an LC can do 300 kph that's not the issue it's how it gets there plus LC don't go round corners with out a fight. Number of sales. Take away armed forces governments un NATO and any other commercial use u can think off there sales are low. The only place I'd like to sit in an LC ... On the back seat. In a sports SUV I'd be driving.

    Bingo! Only Desis which of course also include Pakistanis buy them in herds. They are a fraction of the world population. Land Cruiser has no aesthetics or soul, hence have no appeal for the well-off Western public. Land Cruiser, Prado etc. are off road SUVs for the common people in the West, otherwise also dubbed as the commoners.

    No one in the West with wealth and great social standing will ever consider driving a Land Cruisers on the roads of Monaco for example. Pakistan is a different case altogether of course. But what cars people in Pakistan like has NO correlation with what's being liked in the rest of the world. The world doesn't begin with Pakistan, and neither does it end with it. There is a world beyond it which you need to acknowledge.

    With this I rest my case.

    P.S. Would love to know which part of UK have you stayed in while you were there.

    What is the purpose of a sports SUV? If you want sporty performance why would you not go with a sports sedan or a coupe why buy a SUV?? SUV has only purpose of practicality and offroading.Sports SUV is a useless category.Sports wagon category makes more sense.Why buy a SUV when you do no offroading?People in west just do groceries on their suvs

    P.S. Would love to know which part of UK have you stayed in while you were there.
    Land cruiser is top selling in world, need to acknowledge. In pak, india, guld Arab states and I believe australia, LC is the one anyone like to buy as a leading SUV. It is considered a privilege vehicle across many countries. In Europe, USA, UK choice may be different. It depends on where you are buying and the preference can shift accordingly. Like in gulf very few Range rover you will see but they consider LC as the ultimate choice. People also develop an inclination to buy and stick to it, like corolla in pakistan. Owners of RR are also loyal, chances are son next to father will buy the same .
    West is also making many high end suv's that have low acceptance, American GMC Yukon or Tahoe are not in the top list. Ford expedition has similar specs to LC but few consider it. Your writing hint an inferiority for Pakistanis, its not what west like that we must like. All nations have their choice, If you've worked with british, americans or other nations you must know the strength of Pakistanis.

    Porsche Pakistan launched macan -1382133

    May be I'll compare RR vs LC and post in a new thread a comparison.

    By the way in UK I lived in harrow on the hill, london is beautiful place in many aspects.
