The 2010 Toyota Landcruiser Prado marks a point of distinction in the Prado range as it was the first major update after seven years. The body is longer and slightly lower to add to agility and handling, without sacrificing on luxury. There are 5 and 7-seater options, a new 3-door option, and and a sliding second row. New cars in the range have a $4,000 price increase for entry level cars meaning the lowest new car available is $55,990 and the top of line Kakadu TD comes out at $88,990.
Most buyers of the Toyota Landcruiser opt for the Turbodiesel engine, but the petrol actually tends to handle the slightly heavier update a bit more gracefully. The Landcruiser wasn’t designed so much for passing other cars on the highway, but more for navigating over rocky, rough terrain and taking passengers to new places off the beaten track. There is no specific variant that is objectively the best as it all depends on what kind of driver you are and what you intend for your adventures.
Take a look at the range of options in the 2010 range:
