FOLLOWING the launch of the Prado Altitude earlier this month, Toyota has revealed a special edition Altitude version of its legendary 200 Series.

The 200 Series Altitude utilises the underpinnings of GXL turbo-diesel models, which means the eight-seater is powered by the Japanese brand’s 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo-diesel engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Tony Cramb, Toyota Australia's executive director of sales and marketing, said: “Comprehensive upgrades make the Altitude the ideal choice for those who aspire to a vehicle that delivers an even more luxurious and desirable package.”

The Altitude carries over plenty of kit from the LC200 GXL – seven airbags, reversing camera, vehicle stability and traction control, multi-terrain anti-skid brakes, hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, 17-inch alloys, aluminium side steps, keyless entry and roof rails – but adds a few more niceties.

The driver also benefits from high-quality LED Optitron meters and a 4.2-inch multi-information display.
