Toyota Prado: Buying tips

I need advice on buying a new car suitable for alpine roads. It's tough to find something that meets my requirements. I need a 4WD, petrol (prefer not to have to stuff around with alpine diesel), a full size spare, and plenty of storage space. The difficult part is that I'd prefer something a bit smaller than say a Prado. I don't have a family to drive around. I think the Jeep Wrangler Sport might be an option, but I'd prefer something a bit more comfortable to drive during the five hours it takes to commute from Melbourne to Mt. Hotham. Can you recommend anything for me?

Your choices are limited if you want a four-wheel drive for serious off-roading. You could look at a Mitsubishi Pajero, Nissan Pathfinder, or maybe one of the popular 4WD utes. A ute will do everything you need, and they are quite comfortable on the road.
