This mini version of the full Shogun is ideal for both town and country driving.
The high driving position is great for seeing over hedgerows in the country and getting across the river when it floods! The relatively light turning circle and general handling of the car makes it surprisingly easy to drive and park in the center of town. The 4wd works superbly in the snow and muddy conditions. As 4wd is a driver option, fuel economy is enhanced by the ability to have just the rear wheels doing the driving most of the time.
The Elegance model comes with leather seats as standard, giving the impression of a more expensive vehicle. The equipment is fairly basic, but everything you expect from a modern Japanese car is there. The back seats are ok for room, so long as you don't expect to transport many people taller than 6ft 2".
A bit surprising that it doesn't come with an alarm fitted as standard.
