Toyota Subcompact Off-Roader Due Next Year?

By  | 

There have been a lot of talks linking Toyota to the development of a subcompact SUV for the US market and the word is that the vehicle will be a rebadged of the next-gen Suzuki Jimny.

The Jimny is a popular name in the markets it competes in and we would love to see how the vehicle is received here in the US, if true.

While still based on a rumour without any official confirmation, the Jimny’s move to the US has been strengthened greatly earlier today when an automotive blog from Japan quoted that Toyota has reached an agreement with Suzuki on a major project.

It does not say anything much but the timing of things makes it seem like the Jimny is truly coming to the States. Once again, if true, you should know that the next-gen Jimny is due to arrive next year hence the vehicle won’t arrive in the US until 2019.
