Having survived the restyling of Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 150 , produced since 2009, acquired a new body with a more modern design, a modernized saloon with equipment from his older brother Toyota Land Cruiser 200 . In our review of Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in the new body of 2020 – photo, price, configuration and technical characteristics of one of the most popular off-road vehicles in Russia.
Production of restyling versions of Prado has already started in Japan, so until the end of 2019, an updated SUV will reach the Russian market. According to preliminary information, the price of the new Prado will increase in comparison with the pre-reform Land Cruiser Prado 150 for two reasons. First, the Japanese SUV can boast of a richer equipment. And secondly, it is necessary to create a niche for the new Toyota Fortuner , so that the models do not intersect in the price corridor.
Externally updated Prado has changed minimally, having received a new front part of a body and modernized LED rear position lights. At the same time, the new parts have significantly refreshed the image of the SUV, especially in front, making similar “faces” the new Prado and Land Cruiser 200 . New headlights, falshradiatornaya grille, bonnet with a more charismatic terrain and a bumper with neat fog – such upgrades in front. The rear part of the body received other plafonds of parking lights with all-LED stuffing, a new bumper and a slightly different overlay on the boot.
