I am planning to buy 1st ever SUV for my family and the budget is around 55 to 60 lack. There are different options nowadays in 2020. New Kia Shortage (Off-Road capabilities are very less than Prado) Used Toyota REVO 2016/18 model.Used Toyota Fortuner.or Toyota Prado 120 series its 2.7 liter petrol mileage is very low like max 5 to 6 in City and may be 7 to 8 at long 3.4 and 4.0 petrol has the same Mileage as of 2.7 petrolso I am making my mind for Prado Diesel 1KD FTV D4D its mileage is also good like 9 to 10 in city and up to 12 at longI have read many posts regarding Bad diesel which results in high maintenance (Fuel injectors) of D4D 1KD engines. I am confused which one should i go for. I really want to have a Prado but mileage maintenance and resale needs to be considered for my buying decision.
What is your need? Do you really need vehicle with off-road capability?
Strongly recommend to buy prado 3.4 or 4.0 petrol. D4D isn't good & needs lots of maintenance.Kia wud also be a great choice (as a brand new vehicle isn't going to ask any maintenance for at least 5 years).

120 series diesel LC5 is love by the way
in last year my car honda city went up to khujrab pass 4 times.My younger brother is very much fond of going up north pakistan.and the road there is not good.so i was planning to buy 7 seater SUV with good fuel mileage and market value. So thinking about prado
how much maintenance it would cost meif it is 1 lack per 50 thousand kilo meteri think it is fine
Diesel quality is pretty bad beyond naran. So 3L, 1HZ, 1kz etc are popular there. D4D may ruin ur trip midway (God forbid).Try to find a well kept petrol prado 2005 onwards. U r gonna love it.
