Superb Maneuverability, Wherever You Go
Even in narrow streets and tight corners, Prado's smooth, nimble handling assures driving ease that makes you not feel the vehicle's size.
Comfortable and Spacious in Every Dimension
Prado's distinctively comfortable and spacious cabin assures the satisfaction of all on board.
Sophistication with a Practical Purpose
The instrument panel combines a sophisticated design with ease of use. Materials are strictly selected for their textural qualities while switches are grouped and laid out within easy reach, achieving eminent practicality.
External Audio Input
Both a USB interface and audio mini-jack are available for external audio input, enabling you to easily connect your own playback devices to enjoy your favorite music.
Rear Seat Entertainment
Rear seat passengers can enjoy video from DVDs, Blu-ray discs and other sources on the large, retractable, 9-inch LCD monitor.
Smart Entry & Start System
With the Smart Key, you can unlock the lock the doors just by touching a door handle, and you can start engine by stepping on the brake and pressing the Start/Stop button.
Fully automatic air conditioning offers 3-zone independent temperature adjustment. The independent rear seat temperature controls help assure more comfort for everyone on board.
Crawl Control provides optimal throttle and brake control, maintaining a constant low speed to support safe, sure driving on sand, dirt, rock, snow, mud, steep grades or other surfaces that require fine accelerator control. Five speeds are selectable via a dial-type switch, with fully automatic throttle and brake control that free you to concentrate on steering the vehicle. On models without Crawl Control, Hill-start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control fully support Prado’s driving performance.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control System
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is an advanced system that enhances driving convenience. When traveling at a preset cruising speed, it uses millimeter wave radar to detect and monitor the vehicle ahead, regulating speed as needed to maintain a driver-defined following distance (long, medium, or short), and returning to the preset cruising speed when it detects that the vehicle ahead has changed lanes. (Optional on automatic transmission models)
Blind Spot Monitor
If a vehicle is in the outer mirror’s blind spot when changing lanes, the BSM’s mirror indicator turns on to alert the driver. If the turn signal is then activated, the mirror indicator flashes on and off.
SRS airbags contribute to driver and passenger safety by helping to minimize impact force in certain types of collisions. Ample features include SRS curtain-shield airbags that cover all three rows of seats in a severe side collision. An SRS knee airbag is also available for the driver, which assists the seatbelt function and bolsters protection by restraining the lower body (mainly the knees).
