Next up is the XV Fun Adventure. Unlike the sedan concept, this particular crossover gets a more rugged redesign along with additional extras.

New body cladding is also present on the XV Fun Adventure which further denote the crossover's off-road capability.

It's called the Outback Limited Smart Edition and is based off the top-spec model offered in Japan.
