Japanese Kei-car Flexes its Muscles on a Snowy Day!

The other day, the Tokyo area was hit by a very rare, very heavy snowfall. Plenty of cars got stuck in the snow, and traffic was virtually paralyzed. But in this severe situation, one small car, a Suzuki Jimny, got the chance to show its true abilities. Zoom zoom zooooom!

OMG! This truck is more than big. Its massive!!


Here is the whole video.


The Suzuki Jimny is a popular line of off-road/”kei” four-wheel drive vehicles produced by Suzuki.”Kei-jidōsha” literary means “light automobile” and is a class of small/compact cars with engines of less than 660cc displacement. That’s smaller than many motorcycle engines! This fuel-saving kei-jidosha category is marketed specifically in Japan. Still, with performance like this, maybe you should hurry to a nearby Suzuki dealer ;)
