Off-road technologies All Prado models feature Toyota’s Active Traction Control system, which actively regulates wheel-slip, by directing torque to the wheel with the most traction. The system can apply braking pressure to wheels individually to maximise traction. A low-range transmission with user-selectable rear and centre diff-locks and Hill Assist Control, forms part of the standard ensemble. The Multi-Terrain Select system (VX and VX-L only), operated by a centrally mounted rotary knob, allows the driver to select the correct mode depending on the “road” ahead. The system has five pre-configured modes to tailor the vehicle’s traction control, transmission characteristics, power delivery and suspension settings to the terrain at hand. Expanded range of safety features VX-L grade versions of the new 2017 Prado are equipped with Toyota Safety Sense active technologies to help prevent accidents from happening or mitigating the consequences if an impact does occur. The package includes a Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection function, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert and Automatic High Beam. The Adaptive Cruise Control system uses radar sensors in the front grille to monitor the distance to the vehicle in front and applies corrective action via both throttle and brake inputs to maintain a specified gap. Further driver support is provided in the form of a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (both VX and VX-L) and an upgraded tyre pressure warning system – with digital read-out in the multi-information display. These active safety systems complement the standard seven airbags and comprehensive brake and stability control systems. Warranty and Service All Land Cruiser Prado models include a 5-year/90 000-kilometre service plan and 3-year/100 000-kilometre warranty. www.toyota.co.za
