Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Modellista

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a series of four-wheel drive vehicles produced by the Japanese car producer Toyota. The Land Cruiser series is the longest running series in the history of the company.  The production of the first generation Land Cruiser began in 1951 with 90 units, being at that time Toyota's version of a Jeep-like vehicle. The Land Cruiser has been produced in convertible, hardtop, station wagon, and utility truck versions. The Land Cruiser's reliability and longevity has led to huge popularity which still goes on nowadays.

Toyota is a very committed company, especially when it comes to Japanese customers whom they cannot disappoint. And exactly for them the brand introduced a Modellista styling package that applies to the Land Cruiser Prado. The SUV can be equipped with an aerodynamic body kit containing front and rear bumpers. At the client’s request, the car can receive a sports exhaust system, power retractable side steps. Depending on the customer’s wish, the Cruiser can be equipped with wheels varying in size from 17 to 20 inch alloy wheels. They have a silver or deep gunmetal finish.

The most important changes are brought to the exterior body. The interior of the Land Cruiser hasn’t received too many new elements. Toyota only offers some LED lights and a drink cooler. The Modellista styling package can be purchased as a whole, but on elements, too. The drink cooler, for example, costs around ¥19,950 and the 20 inch alloy wheels are evaluated at ¥378,000. The upgrading aims for the Toyota Land Cruiser owners who wish to personalize the car according to their own personality.
