Hero Image

When it comes to combining rugged capability, luxurious comfort, and cutting-edge technology, few SUVs can match the versatility of the Toyota Prado. The Prado lineup encompasses a range of grades, each catering to different preferences and needs. Whether you're seeking off-road adventures, a family-friendly ride, or a blend of both, there's a Prado grade designed to exceed your expectations. In this article, we'll dive into the distinct features of the Toyota Prado GX, GXL, VX, and Kakadu models, shedding light on what makes each one unique.

 

Toyota Prado GX Setting the Foundation

The Toyota Prado GX lays the groundwork for the lineup with its exceptional performance and array of features. Equipped with a 2.8L turbo diesel engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, this grade ensures both power and efficiency on the road. The inclusion of 17" alloy wheels, smart entry, and a 150L fuel tank highlights its practicality for various driving scenarios.

But it's not just about the mechanics – the GX also boasts an impressive technological suite. The Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility with Satellite Navigation offers seamless connectivity, while the Toyota Safety Sense features like Pre-Collision Safety System, Lane Departure Alert, and Auto High Beam prioritise safety. Rain-sensing wipers and LED Daytime Running Lamps add a touch of convenience and style to the overall package.

Toyota Prado GXL Elevating Comfort and Space

Stepping up to the Toyota Prado GXL, you're greeted with a more refined driving experience. The shared 2.8L turbo diesel engine and 6-speed automatic transmission combination remains, but now there's an emphasis on enhanced interior comfort and space. With seating for seven, privacy glass on rear windows, and a 3-zone Climate Air Conditioning system, the GXL is tailored for family adventures.

The GXL maintains its tech-savvy edge with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, offering entertainment and navigation at your fingertips. Safety remains paramount through Toyota Safety Sense features, and the addition of Vehicle Stability Control further enhances driving confidence. Rain-sensing wipers and LED Daytime Running Lamps continue to make an appearance, ensuring both practicality and style.

Toyota Prado VX Blending Luxury and Performance

As we move up the spectrum, the Toyota Prado VX takes the blend of luxury and performance to new heights. The 18" alloy wheels and 3-zone Climate Air Conditioning with privacy glass and seven seats ensure a sophisticated interior atmosphere. The integration of JBL® premium audio with 14-speakers transforms the cabin into a concert hall on wheels.

The VX is a technological marvel with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, offering an enriched infotainment experience. Advanced features like Front and Rear Parking Sensors with Rear Cross Traffic Alert make manoeuvring a breeze. The Panoramic and Multi-Terrain Monitor amplifies off-road prowess, while leather accented seats offer a touch of opulence.

Toyota Prado Kakadu The Epitome of Luxury Off-Roading

At the pinnacle of the Toyota Prado lineup stands the Kakadu – a grade that epitomizes both luxury and off-road capability. With its 2.8L turbo diesel engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, and paddle shifters, the Kakadu ensures exhilarating performance on any terrain. The inclusion of 18" alloy wheels and a Tilt and Slide Moonroof add an extra layer of distinction.

Technology-wise, the Kakadu pushes boundaries with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, a 9" rear seat entertainment system, and the advanced Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS). This system, combined with the Multi-Terrain Select system, enhances off-road capabilities while maintaining a luxurious ride. The Kakadu is the embodiment of adventure and refinement.
