4 x 4 Australia - - Driven -

ASIDE from the tow­ing and GCM up­grade for all Prado au­to­matic vari­ants, the MY18 Prado also brings new equip­ment to all model grades and price re­duc­tions for the man­ual GX, man­ual GXL, VX and Kakadu.

Most sig­nif­i­cantly, all au­to­matic mod­els now have au­tonomous brak­ing, radar cruise, lane-de­par­ture warn­ing and auto high beam, while the GX man­ual gets sat-nav and the GXL man­ual gains LED head­lights, DRLS and fogs.

The GXL auto gains Op­titron in­stru­ments, a rear diff lock and the op­tion ($3500) of leather seats, plus heat­ing, cool­ing and elec­tric ad­just­ment for the driver and pas­sen­ger.

The VX gains a rear locker, as well as blind-spot mon­i­tor­ing, rear cross-traf­fic alert, and multi-ter­rain and panoram­icview mon­i­tors.

The Kakadu adds the panoramic-view mon­i­tor and then adds ‘Drive Mode Se­lect’, which al­lows the driver to se­lect dif­fer­ent pow­er­train and chas­sis set­tings.
