SWAKOPMUND, Namibia – There was little ambiguity at the South launch of the revised Land Prado range about the buyer at whom Toyota its large off-roader; the majority of the consisted of sand, gravel and surfaces. Tar-road driving was simply to ferry the group of scribes to the next set of off-road Toyota makes no secret the fact that the Prado has to to boulevardiers and off-roaders alike, in the same vein as the Land Discovery, Jeep Grand and Volkswagen Touareg. This task isn’t an easy and brings with it inevitable but the Prado manages this than most.

New for 2014 are redesigned headlamps jut down either side of the grille and which feature lamps, a redesigned front new rear lamps, alloy-wheel (17 inches on the entry-level TX-spec and items on the VX) and blind-spot monitoring warning lamps in the side on VX models.

Inside, the tweaks been minor, with control instead of manual on the TX, electric seats with heating on both models, instruments and a subtly updated console, a Rocks Dirt for the Multi Terrain Select on the VX, trailer-sway control and the option of a on the VX.


The design of the cabin is the Prado’s successful element. Tactile is lacking when it’s with the upmarket interiors of the and Touareg, and a number of the controls too budget-car for a vehicle costing R632 200. However, in of build quality, I have no The vehicles were seriously on the launch and except for slight from the luggage doors on vehicles, there was nary a or squeak.

The Prado is the longest in its class and legroom front to is exceptional (except in the third but this same criticism can be at competitors). However, elbow is less generous, but this aspect does make the easier to thread through and off-road obstacles.

Under the bonnet is either a 202 N.m 4,0-litre V6 petrol or 120 kW/400 N.m 1 600 and 2 800 r/min) 3,0-litre turbodiesel with a five-speed automatic Neither powertrain is exactly of the art – the petrol is the nicer of the two but hellishly on fuel – but they should robust and the diesel especially is in off-roading conditions.

Dynamically, the Prado also few surprises. It rolls in corners, a touch crashy on rough-road and the steering is as dead as the hundreds of seals we passed on a extensive drive south of Walvis However, few rivals match its of ability, even if the Prado manage the on-/off-road compromise as as the Disco.

Off-road, it was flawless. If a became stuck in the dunes Swakopmund, it had more to do with error than vehicular

Pricing-wise, the TX 4,0 V6 starts at R632 200 and the culminates in the 3,0 Diesel VX with at R742 400. The latter may high for a vehicle that its drivetrain with the Hilux, but the value offering somewhat is a sheet as long as those of luxury vehicles, including an excellent 14-speaker sound surround-view cameras and a full of safety features. A five-year/90 000 km plan completes the deal.
