VIDEO: Suzuki Jimny history



Cool video about the Suzuki Jimny's history (also known as the Samurai). Again, I'll whine about not getting the current-spec Jimny, but so be it. I'll keep my Sidekick.

Why is it when any car company talks about "global strategy" they exclude the USA from that list? Are we so much of our own bubble system that nothing that works with the rest of the world will work with us?

Just makes me sad. D:

I never thought about that. We just might be that much of a different market.

@Draw, I think the US gets excluded because of all our safety/emissions laws. Both of those adds extra costs to the vehicle and destroys performance. So, make an easy car, see if it does well in other markets, then do the math to see if it's viable to bring to the US.
