Which way would you take it?

A german In Japanese clothing

A Japanese in German clothing?

Just watching a review of the Mercedes X-Class (A Nissan Navara tarted up and rebadged by Mercedes) and I was thinking about the Zupra.


Which is the one to have? German luxury and style (and price) with somewhat crude and simply, but reliable, Japanese underpinnings? Or Questionable Japanese styling over brilliant but complicated and likely unreliable German underpinnings.

On the one hand the German Japanese sounds like a winner but you pay a TON more for the Germanness and you still end up with a relatively crude, non-german product.


On the other hand the Excellent performance of the Germans is baked into the questionable styling you put up with to get the reliability Japanese products that you certainly wouldn’t have.
