    Default Buying a used Toyota prado

    Hi there,
    After looking for a 7 seater we finally ended up buying a new civic. However we still find the need for a SUV. I've suggested personally buying an approved used Toyota prado diesel from a Toyota dealer in UK, of course 3 years old and ensuring that no one tampers with it at the port. Then hiring a good company to ensure its safe transportation to lahore.
    I am expecting the price of the SUV in UK to be around 15-20 thousand pounds and with the duties, is it possible to get it for less than 40 lacs (door to door inclusive of all costs)?
    Such an SUV will have spares easily available here. There won't be any language issue of its screen either.
    Mileage would be genuine as we will be buying it from an approved UK Toyota dealer.
    If it's around 40 lacs then it isn't a bad deal. However anything above it will become unaffordable.
    What do you guys suggest.

    Isn't fortuner an expanded hilux? Which means terrible comfort, terrible auto transmission and high price that's likely to depreciate quick. Not worth it.
    It's either prado or nothing. And after looking at the prices of approved used 3 year old prados in Uk I've decided to stick to what I have.

    Fortunner 4x2 & 4x4, Hilux 4x4 / 4x2 double cab pickup truck & Prado 5 door are on common chassis - check for physical dimensions in spec sheets. Fortuner is extension of 4x4 double cab with the rear bed infused to a CABIN. It was evolved for Asean market sometime in 2004 / 2004.

    Prado is better choice with atleast 6 variants of 3 doors & 5 doors landing into Pakistan from Japan & Thailand as 3 year old used vehicles.

    Prado has way better suspension than fortuner /hilux.
    Plus their engine variants differ. I don't have high speed Internet at the moment to do the research so I could be wrong.
    Thai/Japanese, cars are out of the question. I can't stand the Japanese language of the screen and buttons plus I can't go personally to have a look at the vehicle so it's a risk.
