Default Should I go for the toyota fj cruiser?

So I'm getting a new car and I'm getting it brand new. I'm going for Toyota since they are very reliable and dependable, they last long and are reasonably priced. I never owned a toyota either. Now the one problem is, most Toyotas are kinda bland looking, the only car that appeals to me is the fj cruiser. I think its a sharp looking car, its unique and it has that rugged/luxery kinda look. I would enjoy driving it because of how cool it looks alone. I also like how it reminds me of those hummers from the early 2000s. However there are a few things I don't like about it, I don't like the blind spots and I don't like the interior. I mean for a sharp exterior, the interior isn't so hot. Its not as futuristic as the other models, however the outside alone is worth it, but I'm always a fan of nice modern interior, and the fj cruiser lacks that. It's got more of a retro look which I'm not a fan of, If only they had a cooler dashboard I would be completely sold on it. What should I do?

The FJ Cruiser had absolutely horrible reviews and their reliability has not been good at all! Pass!!

I own one. They are a nice SUV. I have no complaints out of it. The blind spots arent near as bad if you get one with the rear view camera. Don't get the plan jane cheapo model. Go all out on it. They fully loaded models like mine have a awesome stereo system. It has a factory sub woofer box and amp. Blue tooth, and a water resistant interior like a jeep. The thing is it's a rugged off road vehicle. So your not going to get the super luxuries like in a Tahoe. But for what it is, I think Toyota hit a home run with the FJ Crusier.

They're good solid vehicles. They don't have nice interiors, ride very well, or get good fuel economy. They're made for going off-road so if you're never going to take it off-road you don't need one. I'd go for the 2010-2012 RAV4 V6. They're fast, get decent fuel economy, and easier to live with a on a daily basis. Don't buy new either. The depreciation isn't worth it. Plus the new RAV4 is slow and boring.
