Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Reviews
The Toyota Prado, officially known as the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, joined Toyota’s Australian line-up in 1996, replacing the HiLux-based 4Runner.
Originally designed to tap into the mid-sized SUV market – which was still known as the 4WD market back then – the Prado found huge success, but probably not where Toyota was expecting.
Thanks to enough seats – and enough room – for eight passengers, the Prado was just at home on the school run as halfway up a mountain, covered in dust.
Although now limited to seven-seats, it’s still just as capable in the suburbs and the scrub.
