The newly-updated 2018 Toyota Landcruiser Prado has been revealed at this week's Frankfurt motor show, with the Japanese carmaker putting an increased focus on safety for buyers of the rugged off-roader. Outside, a refreshed exterior is highlighted by a revised – and decently chrome-heavy – grille, restyled headlights, re-profiled fenders, and a potentially polarising new bonnet, which Toyota says has been sculpted “to enhance downward visibility”.
