Advantages

Drivetrain and Suspension

The Jimni is a genuinely competent off roader that will shame a Land Rover Defender off road in some areas (Particularly on soft ground thanks to its light weight, it's short wheelbase gives it a great turning circle and ramp breakover angle and the narrow width allows it to fit down overgrown tracks, not to mind Japanese mechanical reliability) thanks to running the same live axles on coils as the Defender as well as having a low range transfer box and no mid differential, so selecting 4WD locks the axles together (This option is not for use on the road at all). The Jimni was designed as an off roader, not a lifestyle vehicle. The Rav4 by comparison is a jacked up car with no low range gears, which will do about as well off road as a car but with all the same issues on road as a 4x4, namely poor fuel economy, hopeless performance for the engine power thanks to massively higher drag, poor crosswind stability, hopeless interior space compared to a car of similar dimensions, high centre of gravity making it more likely to end up on its roof than any car if the driver changes direction suddenly and higher running costs for items such as tyres compared to a similar sized car.
