    too bad we won't have it. could actually steal some jimny sales. 2 more doors a HUGE plus. awd could take you to a lot of places. most people don't really need a 4x4 (and makes the car ride like krap on pavement)
    IMO, Jimny 4x4 was made to go anywhere including off-road

    Japanese Raize (and other Kei cars) with 4WD was made for snow. Snow chains are not required if your vehicle has 4WD

    i know a few people who bought jimnies coz it was cute. they don't go off-road but are penalized by the poor ride quality

    AWD cars are now quite capable off-road. basically it's all software which actuates the abs module to brake the wheel that loses traction. btw the jimny does this too coz it lacks a "real" diff lock

    so an awd raize w/ 200mm ground clearance and decent approach angle could take you a lot further than a fwd crossover. most people don't really need a 4x4 and all the cons that go w/ it

    I feel like that happens every time a new generation of the Jimny is launched

    But we have to thank those people for early second-hand sales of the car while it's still relatively new.

    we don't need much of a car, to go to the mall.
    which is where many of these cars go, i suspect.

    when i showed wifey a picture of the jimny, she asked,
    "does it come with stairs?"
    so, no. i guess i'm not gonna buy one soon.

    it won't steal jimny sales.. if raize came with an awd for ph would steal sales from the vitara allgrip.
