The Land Cruiser Prado has unveiled impressive gains to performance, fuel economy and quietness with a newly developed turbo-diesel engine.
The 2.8-litre four-cylinder engine has been developed from the ground up to provide more power and torque, unquestionable reliability, robust operation and a smooth drive, all while maintaining the proven carrying and towing capability.
There’s also a VX Petrol model, with a powerful 4.0-litre V6 petrol under the bonnet, This engine from Toyota’s robust family of dependable power units features Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent (VVT-i) and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI).
The Satellite Navigation with SUNATM traffic channel is like having a personal 'traffic expert' in the car with you at all times, anywhere you go in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington or Christchurch.
The SUNA channel broadcasts real-time traffic information about major arterial roads, freeways and motorways directly to the in-built navigation system, which is then translated into warnings relevant to your exact location.
SUNA is able to recommend alternative routes that minimise congestion and delays, so you can get where you're going faster and stress-free. It also maximises your safety by letting you know if there are any major oil spills or road slips in your vicinity.
The Land Cruiser legend has been built from over 60 years of unmatched performance in the world’s toughest conditions, including everything New Zealand can throw at it. With each generation of Land Cruiser, the legend grows. Take a closer look at the Prado range’s headlights and tail lights and you’ll see a special Land Cruiser logo etched within.
An incredible 14 speaker JBL Premium Audio and Navigation system with subwoofer is standard for Prado VX and Prado VX Limited.
This fantastic surround sound stereo system gives you everything at your fingertips, with the added bonus of satellite navigation.
All Prado models feature a handy top-hinged glass hatch in the tailgate. This gives you access to the vehicle’s boot even when in confined situations where opening the full tailgate might not be possible – such as in garages with low ceilings.
What’s more the hatch can be unlocked using the Prado’s smart key and opened with one hand thanks to a discreet button.
Subtle LED illumination sits inside the Prado’s door handles, which makes hopping into the vehicle easier when it’s dark. Only available in the Prado VX and Prado VX Limited.
It’s the little details within the Prado range that offer up touches of luxury, like the power glass sunroof that can tilt or slide, or the chilled central storage compartment in the VX Limited, meaning everyone onboard can enjoy chilled refreshments while en-route to that far-off destination.
And speaking of keeping cool, all Prado models also feature a three-zone climate control air conditioning system, with independent driver, front passenger and second row controls to ensure the right balance for everyone onboard.
