In the previous two columns, we have talked about the Prado OFF Style kit and the VIP performance kit launched by ELFORD. Today we will put an end to this Prado AERO Style version that emphasizes aerodynamic response.
From the appearance point of view, the Prado AERO Style version emphasizes the use of aerodynamic kits. Different from the VIP performance version, the Prado AERO Style version emphasizes the optimization of the aerodynamics of the vehicle. The spoiler lip under the front bumper is lowered by 13 mm, which greatly compresses the air flow flowing into the bottom of the vehicle. At the same time, the use of integral side steps also reduces the ground clearance of the side of the vehicle by 60 mm. . At the rear of the vehicle, the kit with diffuser integrates the four-outlet sports exhaust system to form a monolithic design.
According to the official information released by ELFORD, the Prado AERO Style version also strengthens the aerodynamic response in details such as the chassis. The matching wheels are still ten-spoke lightweight forged wheels. These four wheels are particularly in place for refining the sports style of the Prado AERO Style version, which also makes the use of the kit on the vehicle more coordinated.
However, there is a detail in the front face design of the Prado AERO Style version that is somewhat controversial. The ELFORD kit builds a spindle-shaped air intake grille inspired by the Lexus GX460, which completely breaks the Prado’s original front face shape. Purely from the perspective of the proportion of the front face, the use of this spindle-shaped mouth effectively changed the increase in the thickness of the front of the car caused by the appearance of the lower surround kit. However, perhaps the spindle-shaped design of Lexus is too deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, which also makes the front face style of this Prado AERO Style version slightly patchwork. Of course, the establishment of the inherent image recognition of this sense of patchwork is probably inseparable from the refitting of domestic auto parts cities.
So, is the front face of the Prado AERO Style version good-looking? Let’s chat in the message area below.
