The current generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has been around for a while now and is all set to receive a comprehensive update later this month. Ahead of its public debut at the 2017 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12, the Japanese auto giant has commenced production of the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado facelift in Japan, and images of the luxury SUV at a dealer yard have emerged online, revealing the changes. This is the second major facelift on the present gen Prado, before a complete generation change in the next couple of years.

The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is one of the more capable as well as reliable luxury SUVs out there and enjoys a strong following in India as well. On the facelifted version, the 2018 Prado gets visual updates including a reworked 5-slot grille that stands more upright now, and gets new LED headlamps. The rear has received updates to the taillights and boot for a refreshed look. The front and rear bumper have been revised to incorporate the angular fog lamp enclosures that complement the updated look on the SUV.
Inside, the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado facelift will get new seat upholstery options, reworked dashboard and new features added to the list. Furthermore, reports suggest that the manufacturer will also add the Toyota Safety Sense P safety system on the 2018 Prado facelift that includes a host of safety equipment including Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection function, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function, Automatic High Beams, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and much more.
