Toyota has launched the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in India for a price of INR 92.6 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The new model made its Indian debut at Auto Expo 2018 last month.
The MY2018 update has brought the second facelift to the fourth-gen Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which was originally priced at INR 52.4 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) back in 2009. The second facelift makes the SUV look notably tougher and more aggressive, particularly because of the more imposing design of the new (full-LED projector) headlamps, radiator grille and hood. The bumpers, alloy wheels and tail lights are also new. Three new exterior colours are available – Blackish Ageha, Avant Garde Bronze and Vintage Brown Pearl.
Inside, the MY2018 update makes the Toyota Land Cruiser look much more plush and luxurious. Main changes include new 4-spoke steering wheel, new design combimetre and centre console and heated and ventilated front seats. Two new interior colours are available – Neutral Beige and Redwood, in addition to the existing Black colour. The addition of a panoramic view monitor has made parking easier and safer.
The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is powered by the 3.0-litre D-4D turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 173 PS at 3,400 rpm and 410 Nm of torque from 1,600-2,800 rpm. A 5-speed automatic transmission, a 4WD system and an adaptive variable suspension are standard. The latter allows the driver to choose from three drive modes – Comfort, Normal and Sport. Toyota equips the 7-seat tough SUV with a crawl control system and the Multi-Terrain Select system as well.
After the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, Toyota will launch the Toyota Yaris in India soon. The new sedan’s bookings will open sometime next month.
