Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Genuinely capable 4x4 can seat seven and tow big loads.

PROS
Tough, rugged and reliable workhorse
Far better than previous model
Huge boot in five-seat mode
Seven-seat version available
CONS
Ride can be choppy
Not much engine/gearbox choice
Relatively unknown brand
Low fuel economy and high tax

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.

With its rugged body-on-frame construction, heavy duty hardware and new-age technology that enable it to crawl over obstacles, the Prado is not for pretenders.
To be fair, the Prado is far from rudimentary. It feels solid on the road at highway speeds and around town, although you quickly learn to take roundabouts a little more gingerly because of the tendency for big, tall and heavy 4WDs like this to lean in corners.
The new engine is a worthwhile freshen-up for the Prado but doesn't suddenly transform the vehicle.

Likes
New diesel engine is more refined
Long range due to better economy and 150L tanks
Genuine off-road ability

Dislikes
Towing capacity unchanged at 2500kg
The price is high, especially on top end models
Interior design starting to look a little dated

Cast an eye over the SUV market and you’ll see very few truly off-road capable vehicles. One of them is the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, and here we’ve got the most capable Prado of all, the top-shelf Kakadu.The LandCruiser Prado Kakadu is a very good off-the-shelf off-roader, with its blend of both tradi-tional and modern off-road equipment. With decent all-terrain or mud-terrain tyres (which nearly all standard SUVs would need) we reckon the Kakadu could go just about anywhere.

Likes
Rear axle articulation
KDSS system
Crawl control

Dislikes
Lack of power and torque
Over-bonnet vision
No height-adjustable front suspension
