The only real small off-road car.

My 1988.5 Suzuki Samurai is still one of my fondest memory cars. I adored that thing. I've often toyed w/ the idea of getting one and completely refurbishing it (there is a company in Vancouver that does this).

If they had this in North America, it'd single handily bring Suzuki back to life here.

I understand staying true to heritage and all, but did the exterior have to turn out so square and dull?

I want that.

Something so attractive about a barebones small Jeep-esque utility vehicle. Not some tech/feature packed crossover with car ride-height. It looks cheap and fun.

How is this much different from the Jeep Renegade? Other than The Jeep Factor

This is a real off-road car: BOF, longitudinally mounted engine, transfer case, low range. Renegade is unibody, transversely mounted engine, FWD-based and driven most of the time. Jimny is like a small Wrangler. Renegade is a fake poser FWD-based half AWD (like all other FF-T platforms), while the Jimny is a real 4WD in the vain of Wranglers, Land Rovers, Land Cruisers, G Wagons and other UTEs.

It seems that design is more inspired with Samurai which production ended in 1998, than last gen Jimny which obviously wasn't good for design evolution

Cool, any roofless version? I recall the Samurai having one.
