    I spotted this video on You Tube this afternoon & think that some of the forum members will find it interesting.

    Typical Japanese naming...... “Nuts Border type D” has a real ring about it. Mind you, they probably think that Autotrail Cherokee sounds weird as well

    They look quite smart but you will never see them in Europe, the engine between the cab seats makes the front seats unusable when parked, defets the point of having an A Class. With that engine arragement they won't meet EU safety standards for crash protection.

    why wont they meet safety standards for crash protection.
    Japan has some of the highest road safety standard in the world don't think they will be lowering there standers any time soon to comply with the EU.

    That may be so, but they may not meet EU standards, which may not be better or worse, just different.

    I don't believe they import them anymore as they don't meet the regs.

    I was wondering how the Japanese get on in a motorhome with the "flushing facilities" when they are obsessed with electronically controlled, heated, self washing, music playing (so that nobody hears the ladies tinkle), hi tech bogs............

    One way or another they will be here in a few years. The Japs are not silly.
