I dont know if you have these in the States yet but I have just seen a couple of the new Suzuki Jimny's that have just been released in Australia. I really like the styling and it looks like a fun little 4wd.

There's only a few ways that a 4x4 design works. I feel this one does, has funky proportions, and so much better than the previous models.

I follow a bunch of automotive journalists who love this thing. Apparently it is pretty capable off road as well. I love it as well. It is nice too something that feels off road and still feels friendly.

I haven't seen any of these around yet...I like it! Keep it as is or put on some chunky tyres for the rugged 4wd look.

I really like the styling of this.

I see lots of fancy Maserati/Bently/Lexus 4x4's being in London, but personally, I prefer when 4x4's look industrial and rugged. Honestly, I'd rather this over those expensive ones!

Kinda neat baby G wagon. Interesting alternative to all the CUVs with all kinda of overdone plastic bits trying to look like toys.

Suzuki pulled out of NA just in time to develop a product that would have been competitive here. *claps*

The Jimmy name has been used in Japan for a decade before the Seinfeld episode existed. It would have made for a great Super Bowl ad crossover though.
