    If you are in need of a family car *** 4X4 then go for Prado being 7 seater and if you can manage with 5 seats and want a real 4X4 (among the two) then go for Surf.As such there is no big price difference in both provided same year models.Surf is good in fuel consumption as both have same engines but Surf has small body thus less weight therefore power to weight ratio it is better in drive.

    If you use it as a family car then I wont suggest you any of them if you consider fuel consumption. Most of them are 1KZTE 3.0 TD models and are heavy on fuel. I have had 3 different 1KZs. (1KZT manual, 1KZTE auto and 1KZTE Electonic Throttle-i auto) and they are not efficient engines, thats why production halted and replaced by 1KDFTV which is far better when it comes to power and economy.

    If thats not an issue then you should definately go for Prado. Surf is lower budget made, far low interior space, uncomfortable seating postion and ordinary pickup with 'pants on' looks. However the new shape is a different story

    probably the best answer anyone can give, i agree 100%

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
