Toyota has launched the latest Landcruiser Prado in India. Priced at Rs 52.40 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the new edition of the baby Landcruiser comes with a 3.0-litre diesel engine similar to the one in the Fortuner.

The diesel engine in the Prado produces a max of 170bhp of power and has a torque output of 41.8kgm. Prado’s torquey engine is complemented by a five-speed auto box.

On the outside, the Prado will come with updates that include a new front grille, headlamps and revised bumper as well. It’s got a split tailgate (the glass opens individually) and there’s a biggish refrigerator between the front seats.

On the inside, the Prado has seven seats which are very comfortable and the standard equipment includes three-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry and go, six-CD changer, parking sensors, reverse camera, seven airbags, leather seats, air suspension and cruise control.

The Prado also comes with a full-time four-wheel-drive system (40:60 power split, front to rear, or 50:50 when you lock the centre diff) that gives it tremendous traction while off-roading.

With its imposing looks and a diesel power, the fantastically specced new Landcruiser Prado has got enough reasons to be sold in justifiable numbers.
