Looked like one to me. It solidified some things in my mind about my next car. I don’t do real off-roading but I do go up in to the mountains at times and need to be able to handle narrow and rough two-tracks without bending a wheel or blowing out a low profile tire. It’s nice to have a small turning radius too to make turning around easier. I also need MORE POWER so I can pass people who can’t manage to maintain their speed on a curvy road. The passing opportunities are few and short so the car must be able to answer the call for full speed quickly.

ETA: We were 2 miles from the border according to Google Earth.
