EXPERT RATING
7.5
The third rung up the ladder in the 2018 Toyota Prado range is the VX, which is only available as an automatic and sees a considerable price jump over the GXL auto

The third rung up the ladder in the 2018 Toyota Prado range is the VX, which is only available as an automatic and sees a considerable price jump over the GXL auto – it lists at $73,990 plus on-road costs, but that’s $911 less than 2017.

The VX brings additional items such as 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic/surround-view camera monitor with low-speed forward view setting, ventilated front seats, heated seats front and rear, a cool box between the front seats and LED fog lamps. It also sports leather seat trim, and a 14-speaker JBL sound system.

And if you spend this much you also secure more safety equipment in the shape of blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. 

That’s over and above what you get in the models below: lane departure warning, a pre-collision safety system with pedestrian detection, auto high-beam lights, and automatic cruise control. Also standard: bi-LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lamps, and lamps in the sun-visors. There’s also the addition of privacy glass, roof rails, side steps, a leather-lined steering wheel, tri-zone climate control, and a rear differential lock. 

The VX is automatic only, powered by a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with 130kW of power and 450Nm of torque. It has permanent four-wheel-drive, with 4H and 4L drive modes. Fuel use is rated at 8.0L/100km.
