The FJ Cruiser's throwback styling attracts a lot of attention.
It also imposes compromises.
Visibility is significantly limited by the small windows and wide roof pillars.
Further, the rear-hinged rear doors limit access.
Handling is clumsy, disconcerting at its limits and ride quality is jittery.
On the other hand, impressive off-road ability and the strong powertrain are real strengths.
