Toyota has dressed up its top-of-the-range Prado SUV with the launch of a Prado Kakadu Horizon special edition featuring a number of exterior styling enhancements to give it a more elegant look.
Among the new features for the Horizon special edition are a front bumper spoiler and spats for the rear bumper, chrome side moulding and chrome-accented mirror covers, metallic/pearl paint finish, clear rear combination lights and an exclusive Horizon badge.
Inside, it gains two rear USB charging outlets and illuminated front scuff plates.
Toyota Australia Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said while the Prado remained extremely capable as an off-road adventure SUV, the new premium special edition Horizon model added a greater degree of elegance to the large SUV.
“The Prado has a strong reputation for its go-anywhere off-road ability and the top-of-the-range Kakadu allows customers to get off the beaten track in superb comfort, Mr Hanley said.
“This special edition Horizon variant now adds a further degree of class and style making it a standout for a night out in the city as well,” he said.
The new special edition Horizon model is based on the 30kW/450Nm 2.8-litre turbo diesel six-speed automatic Kakadu variant that comes complete with a dual-range four-wheel drive system, crawl control and multi-terrain select, adaptive variable suspension and rear air suspension providing the power and capability to get to the furthest reaches of the country in supreme comfort.
As the premium variant in the range, the seven-seat Prado Kakadu also features a high level of creature comforts including three-zone climate control, leather-accented heated and ventilated power front seats, electrically adjustable steering column, power third row folding seat, JBL audio system and a rear DVD entertainment system.
The Prado Kakadu is also fitted with an extensive suite of Toyota Safety Sense features including lane departure alert, automatic high-beam for optimum night-time visibility, active cruise control and pre-collision safety system (PCS), together with blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert.
As with all Prados, bar the entry level GX, the Kakadu Horizon is also offered with a choice of a standard tailgate with a spare wheel mount or a flat tailgate that moves the spare underneath and incorporates an independently-opening glass hatch.
The Toyota Prado Kakadu Horizon limited edition is priced from $89,590.
