The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado made its public debut a few months back at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was officially launched in the UAE in October by Al-Futtaim Motors, the exclusive distributor of Toyota in the UAE. The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is available in three variants (7 trims), and we recently got a chance to test drive the range-topping “Limited” variant. Below are our findings:
2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado ReviewWalk Around As you walk around the new SUV, you see the 2018 Land Cruiser Prado has come with some impressive exterior updates, which distinguish it from its predecessor. Up front, the propounding chrome grille and the LED headlights have been restyled. Furthermore, the front fender and the bonnet have been redesigned to improve downward visibility. The front and rear bumpers have also been reshaped along with new taillights. Interior Besides the exterior design, Toyota has also revamped the 2018 Land Cruiser Prado’s interior for a more luxurious feel. The front dash, instrument panel as well as the switchgear have been updated. The limited trim features opulent leather seating with power function and heating/ventilation option. The front-dash incorporates a large touch-display; we will discuss it later. The cargo space measures 16.1 cu.ft, which can be further increased by pushing down the third-row seats.
