I don't know. The 2017 seems to try too hard to look like something it is not, half-sporty, half-cute. The 2018 is an unapologetic box that stresses ruggedness which I think fits better. Do I like either? No, but the 2018 seems to subordinate looks to function and that is something I do appreciate.

The Jimny in Kei version doesn't look very nice, but the Sierra looks very cool !

660cc or 1.5l engines. Manual 5 or auto4, cruise control and air con. Part time 4wd with low gears.
They should just make one electric as well. Not that it needs travel far. But with electric motors it could have masive torque.

Electric would be great.

It is interesting to consider if it has a case for re-entering the US market.

When you look at people with established incomes, the Jimny is a no go. People who want something just for trail buy UTVs, ATVs, or build old Jeeps and trucks into crawlers and trailer them to the trailhead. People who want a vehicle that does it all cannot use a Jimny because it is far too tiny.

Otoh, considering how pricey the few remaining 4x4s are for a young person, I guess, there IS a niche, people who are in their early to mid-20s--and single. For them, it could do all sorts of things. But then there is the question of how many people shop with "form follows function" in mind.


Either way, the most basic 2dr Wrangler is nowadays 30,000+ out-the-door whereas Wranglers used to start under 20,000 not so long ago. A Jimny priced at 15 and topping out at 20 might have a chance.
