My friend, lets diminish the risk of friends waging war on one another (use the search function for the forums) , since both rides have advantages and disadvantages. I was on an adrenalin high, on a serious note, as mentioned, consumption and 4x4 don't come hand in hand. So stop worrying about that because its going to suck eggs anyways. Small edge to the Mitsus in general, they just use smaller engines for the most part. Parts are available for Yotas and Mitsus, but edge to Yotas as this is Yota spares country. Offroading, depends totally on the driver. City drive, typically, anything with independent front and/or rear suspensions, like most of the Pajeros (any generation), the newer LCs are going to be pretty good. No edge if you go new, edge to Pajeros if you go old. Mechanics and their availability, Yotas take this one. Cost and value, Pajeros take this one. Customizing, Yotas. Fan boys, each have their own And its bloody late now! Good night.
