Strangely enough I don't hate it. Not gonna sell the 40 to get one, though.

You gotta love the comments:

"jonny_dipstick Mar 5, 2014

no real man is going to want one. Only people that think they are going off-roading, but really, they are just going to whole foods to get some organic tofu. mmmm....bean curds."

I like the idea of a small 4x4, like the Suzukis.

This reminds me a RAV4 or the Scion cube thing.

Except that it has a diesel.

And a low range.

So I dunno. With Toyota halting the FJC (which is a truly lame move), it could fill a niche. It's probably too small to really be competition to the FJC & 4Runner, though.

Except that the diesel won't be offered in the USA according to this article.

I'm a huge fan of lifting a back wheel over a 1 foot obstacle! Hope it has lockers! Why would they show a lifted wheel with little droop?

Probably a nice little winter commuter. But will see the wrong end of a strap with any wheeling opportunity.
