    They tested one in the American version of Top Gear.

    It struggled a bit.

    Off road is a bit of a relative term, as I have taken a Prius "off road."

    What type of terrain are you looking at?

    they look cool but don't seem like they're light enough to have the benefits of a jeep or powerful enough to have the benefits of a bigger rig.

    mud, logging roads, minimum maintenance roads, deeper snow, etc.

    I could say that it can get through most 4x4 conditions, assuming you're not pushing it through some extreme inclines or obstacles.

    Are you thinking about replacing the Expedition or adding a new toy to the stable?

    neither, really. my gf really likes them and i was just wondering if they are legit or not. i need a 4x4 in my arsenal but if she wanted one i could see getting a nice sedan of some sort. but i'd hate it most of the time because i love my expedition. :cheer:

    It'd be a good chickmobile. I wouldn't buy one for serious off roading, though.
