    Default Which battery for Prado150, 2012 model??

    Hi Guys!!
    I need to replace my startup battery on the Prado 150, that I bought second hand two years ago.
    Which battery is the better choice??
    Any recommendations welcome.
    My local battery shop sells Varta. How do they compare??
    Thanks

    Go for AGM and the biggest that can fit the battery box.

    Exide, Willard, Varta etc are all good brands.

    657 seems to be the correct size for the diesel.

    Minimum of 630 cold crank Amps

    Petrol seems to be bigger for some reason at 830 CCA.
