A fuel efficient Hummer...?

This Suzuki seems to be all over the place in Japan nowadays.

It looks like a Hummer (from a distance with eyes squinted) but it isn't.

Behold the Suzuki Hustler.
The Hustler Is Real: Suzuki Built This Wonderhatch Of Pure Amazement


A kei car obviously, with a FE rating of almost 30 km/l (70 mpg)...
4x4? Check. CVT? Check. Offroad capabilities? Err...

Not only is it adorable, but you could get this thing with a fold-out tent! It's like an Aztek that doesn't make babies cry when they look at it!
Even the name is like 'Hummer' - just not.
Wonder what the owners manual looks like. Wonder what kind of customer they aim at.
