    I can’t love it enough really.

  • Dennis James

    I really like this car, but it’s strange to compare it with Renault Captur…the Captur is a cross-over, this is the real deal small SUV.

    • brn

      Almost complete, meaning no lockers, no skid plates, etc? This is a fun little off roader, but it’s not in the same league as a true off roader.

        Hence “almost”.

    Toyota should import Suzukis to the US as Scions.

    • kachuks

      There’s not a chance in all of Satan’s hell that something this affordable will ever be sold again in the US.

      • EM1

        With added safety features to meet US regs, it will make it a bit more expensive.

    • Mr. EP9

      Scion is dead and has been for some time now.

      • EM1

        Aware of that but importing Suzukis as “Scions” might be smart if they can add additional safety features.

  • alexxx

    This Jimny is just spot on

  • kachuks

    Someone who wants something small, economical on mpg’s and the wallet, with usable off-road capabilities.

    Have you seen the market for used samurai/sidekick/tracker?

  • Paul

    I like it. Too bad they cant get that partnership thing a going again and bring it to the US. Make it have the safety features and crash worthiness of course.

  • EM1

    I saw it in Japan, loved it.

  • Greg

    I really wish manufacturers would ditch the SUV ( bog standard cars with big bodies) and return to the real off roaders, where no track was too wild, no surface unpassable and scratching the paintwork wasn’t even a thought.

    Somehow this gets it for me….underpowered as it is.
