SAFER PRADO

A mild update has brought a selection of new safety gear to Toyota’s consistently popular Landcruiser Prado, accompanied by some pricing reductions and a subtle facelift. The entry GX manual is now $600 more affordable at $53,490 despite gaining navigation and greater connectivity applications. All versions now benefit from autonomous emergency braking, active cruise control, lane departure warning and auto highbeam headlights. The suggestively named Kakadu range-topper is now $1121 cheaper at $84,490.
