4x4 of the Year 2012 winner

4X4 of the year 2012! And the winner is...

Toyota's FJ Cruiser has taken out the title of 4X4 Australia's 4X4 of the Year 2012.

At the start of the week, most of the judges didn't give the FJ much hope of winning 4X4OTY. But as the days progressed, the FJ's fun factor, the simplicity of design, and the way it works so well came to the fore.

Three judges scored it first, two scored it second and another third against tough competition.

The FJ Cruiser puts enjoyment into driving on- and off-road thanks to its individual styling, ease of use, affordability and no-fuss ability. Whichever way you look at it, the FJ Cruiser is a great 4X4 and a worthy 4X4 of the Year winner.
