Imagine you’ve been working for a multi-national company, and after sweating it out for a couple of years, you’re about to get promoted. Great. Of course, with the additional benefits and cash at hand, there’s no better way to show off than a new set of wheels. Riding around in your sensible Japanese sedan is fine, but it just doesn’t that x-factor anymore. Opting for a German sedan is still out of your budget, and the running costs of those gigantic American SUVs still sting the pocket. So, without sacrificing image, is there a vehicle that could provide everyday practicality, exceptional performance and good comfort? Luckily for you, there’s the Isuzu Trooper.

Japanese sedans used to be simple: three sizes with three different strengths: mild (1.3), regular (1.6), and extra strength (2.0). You could only get the stronger flavor if you ordered the bigger cup. German brew was much more interesting; they were not averse to serving heady 40-proof in a shot glass. (Think C43 AMG.)
