I think people who are suggesting you to buy Vezel over Prado have never driven a Prado. I have 2003 TZ Prado 3400cc which I purchased in 2010. Don't underestimate Land Cruiser brand, they are built to last. I have been to countless jeep tracks in north, went to Deosai Plains and camped on top for a night. It never gave up on me, even in a severe mud pool where Hilux Vigo was completely stuck, Prado went through like a champ. Also crossed a river on Deosai Plains.
After reading a lot about Vezel and seeing them on roads, I just went to a dealer to check it out as I was getting interested in selling my Prado and buy a new Vezel. Its quite smaller than Prado, but still I found it much very stylish. The kind dealer allowed me to have a test drive of 300 kilometer driven 2015 Vezel. I had a lot of expectations from Vezel which was immediately shattered on next small pothole which I used to ignore on Prado. Its suspension is nothing compared to Prado's air suspension. In Prado I can drive over big potholes in average speed without feeling anything. In Vezel it would kill my spine if I drove with same speed. The road noise is bad, Prado's cabin is much quieter. Its underpowered compared to 3.4 Prado. The Air Conditioning was not enough at full speed in this weather, Prado's Air conditioner is much more cooler. I think I should make a list of comparison.
What 2003 Prado TZ offers over 2015 Vezel:
1. Better Power - 2. True Off-road - 3. Locking differential 4. Hill descent control - 5. Height Control - 6. Comfortable Air suspension - 7. Cool Box - 8. Sunroof - 9. Quieter cabin. - 10. Much more roomier - 11. More Comfortable Seats. - 12. More cooler Dual Air Conditioning - 13. Much better ground clearance - 14. Bigger luggage space - 15. 7 seats - 16. Built in LCD Screen (As Vezel don't come with LCD and you have to install them from market.)
What 2015 Vezel offers over 2003 Prado:
1. Keyless entry - 2. Push Start button - 3. Electric Hand break - 4. Much better fuel consumption - 5. Paddle Shifts 6. Is New
In my opinion there is no comparison. My Prado's market value is around 40 lakh and do about 6-8 km/liter in city and on motorway. If you can afford it, then definitely go for Prado if you care about ride comfort and off road capability. If you're looking for fuel economy and don't want to do much maintenance then go for Vezel. But keep in mind, those batteries in Vezel will not last forever, when they die they will be expensive to replace, you have to keep that in mind when comparing fuel economy.
Its really a choice between saving money or enjoying a better drive.
