Our test vehicle is the Prado Kakadu, a seven-seat 4WD wagon with a list price of $87,468, excluding on-road costs.
Standard features include a 9.0-inch touchscreen multimedia unit (with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and sat-nav), three-zone climate control air conditioning, a JBL 14-speaker sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system (Blu-ray DVD player) with 9.0-inch screen and three wireless headsets, button-operated third-row power-folding seats, panoramic-view monitor, tilt-and-slide moonroof, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
It also has a premium woodgrain-look power-adjustable steering wheel with paddle shifters, leather-accented, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-range 4WD, as well as 4WDing-suitable driver-assist systems, such as crawl control and multi-terrain select (both for off-roading), adaptive variable suspension (with three modes: comfort, normal and sport), rear air suspension and Toyota's 'Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System' (KDSS).
Driver-assist tech includes 'Toyota Safety Sense' (including 'Pre-Collision Safety System' with pedestrian detection, 'High Speed Active Cruise Control' and more).
A flat tailgate option (which moves the full-size spare wheel from the rear door to the Prado's underbody) is available for the Kakadu. Our test vehicle has it.
Worth noting that choosing this option reduces your fuel capacity from 150 litres to 87 litres, because you sacrifice the 63-litre sub-tank so the spare tyre can be fitted underneath the vehicle.
Kakadu interior seat trim choices are beige leather accented or black leather accented.
Exterior paint choices include 'Graphite', 'Espresso Brown', 'Glacier White', 'Crystal Pearl', 'Silver Pearl', 'Peacock Black', 'Eclipse Black', 'Ebony', 'Wildfire' and 'Dusty Bronze' (premium paint, on our test vehicle). Premium paint costs $675 extra.
There are accessories aplenty available for the Prado, but there are also bundled packs which incorporate several accessories to suit your lifestyle.
The 'Adventure Pack' includes an alloy bull bar (commercial), light bar (fitting kit sold separately), snorkel, roof rack with alloy roof tray (both sold separately) and weather-shields (left and right sold separately).
Then the 'Weekend Getaways' pack includes a nudge bar (black), light bar (fitting kit sold separately), bonnet protector (tinted), roof racks with bike carrier (both sold separately), tow bar, tow ball and trailer wiring harness.
