Toyota Prado: Old vs. new


The Toyota Prado comes as a smaller — and more affordable — option in the Land Cruiser range, filling the gap between the Toyota Fortuner and the Land Cruiser.

Now on its fourth generation, this SUV has seen its fair share of face-lifts and upgrades. Let’s check out how the Toyota Prado has evolved in this face-off of the old versus the new.



Toyota gave the current-gen Prado a makeover, endowing it with a bolder face flanked by angular headlamps on each side. The horizontal bars on the grille are wider compared to the older model. The overall layout of the grille makes the new Prado look more imposing, and offers a sharper look.


Under the hood of the old Prado is a 3.0-liter diesel mill mated to a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual. The new Prado can be had in a 2.8-liter diesel or a 4.0-liter gasoline engine mated to a six-speed automatic tranny with sequential shift.



Toyota never skimps on safety, especially when it comes to its SUVs like the Prado. Even before its refreshed version, the Prado offered safety features like Downhill Assist Control (DAC), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).

The new Prado adds Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Trailer Sway Control to its suite of safety features.
