New Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2016, 2017, video review Land Cruiser Prado:
The ADR combined fuel usage is 7.9L/100km with the manual transmission and 8.0L/100km with the automatic. This represents a 10.2 percent improvement from the outgoing model.
At launch, CarAdvice drove a Prado GXL (starting from $59,990 plus on-road costs) with the manual, a Prado VX (starting from $73,990) with the auto, and a Prado Kakadu (starting from $84,490) with the auto, to glean a solid cross-section of model grades.
The big news for the 2016, 2017 Prado thanks largely to the new diesel engine is absolutely the significant improvement in refinement and quietness, a factor from outside at idle and inside the cabin at any speed. While the old Prado is a bona fide tough as nails workhorse that has proven its worth over many years, there’s no doubt whatsoever that the engine was very truck-like. Even at idle, it sounded like a mini Kenworth, let alone when you buried the accelerator pedal and asked it to work a little harder. There was little in the way of refinement under the bonnet.
That lack of refinement and manners has gone out the window with this new Prado. At start up, there’s barely any chatter and once settled into idle, the four-pot turbo engine barely gives away that it’s a diesel. On the highway, you could almost trick passengers into believing you’re driving a petrol engine such is the subtle nature of the oiler at work. Even when you kick down to roll-on overtake, there’s no nasty roar, clattering or even any whistling from the turbo. Car rent in Phuket http://thai-sale.com/car-rent/ #cars #auto #moto
