I am no big fan of SUV’s, I think most of them are just expensive toys. The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a totally different story though. Now that is a car I could get excited over! I am just slightly worried over the consumption of the 4L engine… And I understand the 2012 model isn’t available in yellow

If the US price ($26k) would translate to the Chinese price (about ¥175k), I might even consider saving up and buying one! However, strangely enough a quick search on the internet reveals that the price in China is around ¥530k. That is one massive mark-up! I’m not going to spend €65k/$84k on a car that is that bare-bones! That same money buys you a Land Cruiser Prado (sold as Lexus GX460 in some countries) here in China… While they’re build on the same frame, with the same engine, the Prado is much more luxurious.
To put it into perspective: where in US prices the FJ Cruiser is 60% more expensive than the Corolla, in Chinese prices it’s 440% more expensive!
What’s going on with car prices in China?
