What You Get
ALL Prado models from the $56,050 GX up come with seven airbags, smart-key entry and stop/start, rear camera and cruise control. The $61,190 GXL adds third-row seats (a GX option), sat-nav, side-steps, dualzone climate and rear sensors. From there the $74,901 VX adds leather, power-folding third row, 18s instead of 17s, KDSS, and auto headlights and wipers. The top-spec Kakadu ($85,611) then adds auto emergency braking, radar cruise-control, blindspot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, memory seats, cool box, rear DVD, Crawl Control, Multi-terrain select, and adjustable dampers and rear suspension. Our vehicle was a limited-edition Altitude, based on the GXL. For a $5000 premium it adds leather, 18s, power front seats, premium sound system, rear DVD, and sunroof. It also mounts the spare under the car, reducing fuel capacity but bringing a two-piece tailgate.
