I was advised the newer edition is coming later this year, of course at a higher price if you want to hold out.

As Rory P said, its the same vehicle built by the Hyundai Kia Automotive Group.

But service from N&M (Mel's) is much better than SSales. That's why I haven't bought an Audi yet. :D

Ask tr1ad for an unbiased review on the Tucson. :D . He on his third. :D
And they faster than my SGV :(

Really depends on the budget. The Prado is the best but super expensive. How come no-ones mentioned the Fortuner as an option?

Prado is the better vehicle. The Fortuner and Hilux Vigo are part of Toyota's IMV project where they cut cost of building the vehicles.
