G-Class Example (Five-Seater SUV)

March 12, 2019 Update!
The end of the 2018-19 Winter Season is approaching, and someone offered to buy the only Forester we had. This means we won’t have an SUV for rent until Winter 2019-20. Many thanks to the customers who used it this year. We’ll leave the information up as an example of G class and the general standard of our cars. We are accepting bookings for G class for next winter, but please note that it will not be the car pictured below. As G class, we will likely use Foresters or possibly Nissan X-Trails, a similar-sized compact SUV with many fans worldwide. If you book this class of car, we guarantee that it will not be an older model than the “SH” third-gen Forester pictured here.

Here is an actual example of a G-class rental SUV we have. This particular car is a Subaru Forester SUV. Like all our cars, it comes with 4wd, snow tyres, snow wipers, a drive recorder, and a lockable ski rack. The daily (24-hour) rate is 8,200 yen. To make a booking request, click here.

Our Subaru Forester. It’s a popular car, so book in advance to avoid disappointment.

It has five seats. It has Subaru’s all-time 4wd system and as an SUV, it is perfect for winter roads. It also has great ground clearance for getting out of snowy car parks. This particular car has push button entry and push-button start, useful features for any car driven in a cold area. It means you can unlock the car and start the engine with gloves on and the key safe inside a zipped-up pocket. Anyone who has fumbled a car key with cold hands and dropped it into deep snow will understand.

A further benefit of push button start is that you can lock and unlock the ski racks with the engine still running (both keys are on the same key ring). For Subaru fans, this is a third gen Forester, which is larger and more rounded than the older models. Both the front seats are heated, and the stereo is Bluetooth compatible.

Plenty of room for five

The rear seat is split in a 6:4 arrangement. When renting this SUV for less than five passengers, one or both sides can be folded down for more luggage space.

AWD for hire
Folding both seats down creates a huge space. Customers are free to carry skis and boards inside the vehicle. It protects your gear and is easier than using the racks.
