It also threw in a new audio system that is fully compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also included a restyling of bother interior and exterior which enhanced the appearance. They didn’t stop there either. The previous engine was a little louder than necessary and a few tweaks here and there gave it a much smoother idle.

It was discontinued for a period of three years and made its appearance on the automotive scene again in 2015 with final production in the 2017 model.

This recreational vehicle was first conceptualied during the economic boom that was experienced in Japan. The sliding door on the passenger side was oneof the more popular features.
It began as a taller wagon in the first run, but when it reappeared, it lost the rear sliding door and went with the more conventional doors seen on modern SUVs. This is one of the more popular models because it features the four wheel drive aspect of an off road vehicle without sacrificing interior comfort and excellence in handling.
