Toyota Prado 2019, manufactured by the Japanese car maker Toyota since 1984, belongs to the Toyota Land Cruiser model. This is one of the most impressive pieces of the full-size SUV category.

2. Why should people buy the Toyota Prado 2019?

In a word, the Toyota Prado 2019 has bold and impressive design that has been a stunning SUV for years. In addition, its interior is more charming than the exterior that brings luxurious feelings. 

The 2019 Prado has plenty of space for your cargo up to 1833 liters, depending on the seating arrangement in use. Huge interior space is one of the key reasons that buyers prefer SUVs over other vehicles.

Land Cruiser Prado 2019 comes with advanced safety features which make it a distinguished choice in its segment. The powerful engine is more polished than rough and feels responsive around town, but ultimately lacks the kind of power that some of the competition has.

3. Toyota Prado 2019 Philippines Price & Variants available

4. What’s missing from the features?

The Toyota LC Prado 2019 is an excellent SUV, but another comfort technology is not yet available (include Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integration) unlike in other cheaper competitors like Mitsubishi Pajero Sport or Ford Everest. Besides, parking also is an issue with its big size.

If fuel economy is a top priority, then the Prado 2019 may be a disappointment for you. These models are built to carry cargo and people and that means they will be massive and heavy.
