New Sammys in Portugal

due to the increase of off-road car Taxes in Portugal. Suzuki made the right move and managed to have the cheapest off-road car in Portugal once again. They gave up on producing the Short version with the 1.9TD Peugeot engine and reintroduced the long sammy with a new 1.9TD Renault engine (better performance and cheaper to mantain). This is a 2 seat truck and it's considered a commercial so it pays no taxes it costs 2.400.000$ (escudos).
They replaced the sammy 1.3 engine for the 1.3 of the jimmy with 80hp, making the the value for money factor weight more. It's costing around 3.000.000$.

both have power steerring.

IF only I had some money....

FYI, a new TDI Samurai in Germany costs around 22,000 marks which is right around $10,000 with taxes. Oh, the TDI LWB pickup models is about $1000 less.
