What we like
- The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, intended for the Indian market is a very strong and powerful vehicle.
- It offers great driver visibility, good, light steering and ground clearance and is armed with great specs.
- This high-performing, practical vehicle is built to last and its presence is statement-making.
What we don't like
- The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado made for the Indian market, lacks many aspects when compared to its original.
- It is very expensive and maintenance too is high and interior material quality doesn’t speak luxury, just sports practical.
- No video cameras to observe wheels while off-roading, and it’s not too quick and low mileage.
The Toyota Land Cruiser intended for the Indian market, is different from its international version. The Indian version is referred to as the Prado and is considered a baby Land Cruiser. But still, it holds a great visual sway, it’s powerful and has great engine refinement that aids both on road and off-road performance. As compared to competitors in the segment, it is high-priced but in many ways it is a complete value for money car and has a big fan base. It sports an opulent look and has a dominating road presence. A spacious vehicle, interior is classy and is one of the best SUVs in India today.
