We had taken a Suzuki Jimny 4X4 for rent, and was considering downgrading it to a Volkswagen Polo for better comfort and economic reason. But the rental agency is recommending a 4X4 only particularly for West Fjords...as there are many steep hills on old gravel roads
Ofcourse we dont plan to drive on any F road, and apart from driving from Keflavik to your guesthouse, we plan to also visit Örlygshafnarvegur and Bíldudalur, - so we are now confused, if we should stay with the Jimny or change it to a Polo.
Do you think it's "better" / "safer" to have a Jimny 4x4 instead of a Polo ? I know that I dont "need" a 4WD to drive in West Fjords normal roads, but the question really is, if I have a Jimny, is better / safer than having a Polo ? The Polo has a little more space, a better interior, and lower centre of gravity so I am inclined towards it... and I read somewhere Jimny is a not so good in handling turns which the West Fjords is full of... so Confused!
