FOLLOWING THE LAUNCH last month of the 2010 Toyota Landcruiser Prado, Toyota Australia has today unveiled the three-door version of the Prado.

Entering the Australian market for the first time, the three-door Prado will be sold alongside the five-door model from November.

Wearing the same face as its five-door sibling, the three-door Prado sets itself apart with all-new sheet metal for the roof and rear quarter - however the rear door is shared with the five-door model.

Thanks to its shorter wheelbase, the three-door Prado may prove more appealing to off-roading enthusiasts looking for a vehicle with a higher break-over angle.

The lighter three-door Prado benefits from increased towing capacity, able to pull three tonnes (braked) - 500kg more than the five-door.

Toyota Australia's David Buttner said the three-door Prado stands out as the ideal vehicle for couples looking for an off-roader with sporty styling and strong towing power.

"Even more than new five-door Prado, the three-door will definitely attract buyers who previously have not considered a sports utility vehicle," Mr Buttner said.

"Specification levels will be high across three- and five-door ranges, with several flow-down technologies from Lexus and from LandCruiser 200 Series.

Each model in the Prado range is fitted with seven airbags, vehicle stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes.

Alloy wheels and Toyota's Smart Entry & Start are standard.
