While the Prado looks impressive on the outside, the interior design of the car is world class, too.
Smart Entry and Start, a feature across the range, allows the vehicle to be locked or unlocked without even removing the key from your pocket. Thanks to built-in antennae and touch sensors, if your keys are in your pocket or bag, the car knows when you're close and unlocks itself the moment you grip the door handle. The same principle is used for Smart Start - you simply push the brake and the start button to start the engine.
Practical, clever and attractive interior design makes Prado extremely comfortable, yet highly adaptable. We've engineered the seating to work in a wide variety of configurations; from 2 to 7 people#, with lots of room for everything from luggage and shopping to ski gear and mountain bikes.
Models featuring a 3rd row can have this row fold flat while the second row also folds near flat. The interior design team have even included two 12V DC outlets on the centre console and a 220V AC outlet in the luggage compartment, so wherever you go you have the power - literally.
With a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 17 speakers++ the Prado sounds as good as it looks. There's breathtaking audio quality from CD, radio, or selected MP3 devices^.
The Rear Seat Entertainment 9" monitor with DVD capability on the Kakadu grade gives you a truly world-class entertainment system - to go. If it's the sound of silence you're after, you'll be pleased to know it also includes three wireless headphones and individual headphone jacks.
Prado's audio system has a USB port for selected memory sticks, an aux input for iPods®+^ (or other MP3 players)^ plus Bluetooth™## connectivity. So you can listen to music from pretty much any source.
Even the cup holders have been thought about, designed and placed in such a way as to enhance the driving experience as much as possible.
You'll find a pair of cup holders conveniently placed in the centre console next to the driver and front seat passenger and two more in the rear.
The cup holders are designed to help prevent spills while being easily accessible.
Just another example of the close attention to detail that's gone into the design and build of the Toyota Prado.
Nobody likes 'warm' cold drinks or a wilted lunch. To keep your drinks and food cool throughout your trip fill the cooler box straight from the fridge.
