Interior Legroom & Space

The interior of the 2015 Prado is as polished as Toyota gets, it comes with high-quality materials and what looks to be careful manufacturing. However, what you receive here falls short of luxury designation, at least in comparison to what you will find its competitors.  The Prado has an 8-passenger capacity but the third row is suitable for children due to its low, flat bottom cushions, which force taller passengers into an uncomfortable knees-up position. Second-row passengers enjoy much more space and have slid-able and reclining seats.
