Following a grand unveiling which happened in September, and spurred much interest and excitement, Toyota Australia has launched finally put an end to the eager wait and launched the 2010 Toyota Prado, and with the new offering, the company is optimistic about taking its 150,000 Australian sales for the current year to a new high.
The new offering is available in 5 and 3 door body-styles and comes with a total of 14 variants. With a more aggressive appearance and improved aerodynamics, the new Prado is a little larger than the current model. It is 80mm longer, 10mm wider and 15mm lower, which makes the 2010 Prado a wider and more planted model.
Making the design more contemporary and comfortable, the new Prado 5 door allows the second row seat to slide down, and the third row seat can be folded flat, giving travelers much more space than ever before. LED lighting, an improved interior, a rear window wiper and a set of cameras pointing backwards, sideways and ahead for an improved view when driving and parking, make the 2010 Prado an attractive buy. The new product has been released as a diesel only model, and houses a 127kW, 410Nm, 3.0-liter engine.
With the new Prado, Toyota is hoping to catch the eyes of both city buyers, who want a family wagon, as well as frequent travelers who encounter tough terrains and need to be on the road frequently. The manual GX model is priced at $78,490, and the LX make, which the company is guessing would be more popular, it priced at $104,990.
