Toyota rarely does Special Editions.
So the new Altitude models for the Prado and LandCruiser 200-series are a welcome surprise to the range for 2017.
LandCruiser Prado Altitude
Previously released on the last generation model in 2015, the Altitude takes the spare wheel from the barn-door of the Prado and replaces it with a split lifting tailgate (similar to the LandCruiser 200-series.) This improves accessibility (thanks to a lighter tailgate, and glass hatch), while the styling is focused on making the LandCruiser Prado even more suited to buyers who use their 4WD in the urban jungle and not just off-road (although the lack of a fibreglass bump in the back will no doubt help reversing drivers!)
Looking out from the special edition Prado, the included tilt-and-slide moon roof will open up the interior and let the great outdoors into those long road trips cruising down the highway.
Inside, the Prado Altitude also cops digital radio, satellite navigation and roof-mounted rear seat entertainment system, previously only available in the high-spec Kakadu grade.
LandCruiser 200 Altitude
The flagship off-roader in the Japanese brand, the LandCruiser 200-series is synonymous with go anywhere toughness, practical reliability and superior off-road comfort.
The new special edition ‘Cruiser adds to the reputation of the durable and exceedingly popular GXL grade with a Clearance and Back Sonar, rain sensing wipers, LED fog lights, refrigerated cool box and leather accented interior on the power adjustable front seats with upgraded navigation unit and Optitron Combimeter display (previously only available in VX and Sahara models) for those inside.
Above and beyond the GXL, this turns the LandCruiser Altitude into an even more formidable off-road machine, with creature comforts inside and rugged reliability throughout.
