Many of these cars were sold with Subaru's CVT transmission, which wasn't quite as civilized or sturdy as the CVTs we see today, but this one has the rugged 5-speed. That button on the gearshift switches between front-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive; since Americans found this sort of choice confusing (and leaving the car in 4WD on dry pavement would tear up the tires and/or break drivetrain components), full-time all-wheel-drive replaced this sort of setup as the 1990s progressed.
The Justy had a carburetor all the way through the 1992 model year (one of the last US-market cars to be so equipped), so this futuristic fuel-injection system took brought the 1.2-liter three-banger into the modern world.
These cars were slow, even with the 5-speed. Very slow. The cheap price tag and decent fuel economy helped sales, though, and the lack of 4WD versions of the Geo Metro and Ford Festiva sent a lot of Colorado customers to the Justy.
The interior is your standard mid-1980s Japanese-commuter-appliance stuff; this gray plastic and cloth wouldn't have looked out of place on a new 1985 Tercel, 323, or Sentra.
Just the thing for a shaggy dog to drive around Los Angeles.
When a man loves a woman (with big 1980s hair)... he drives his Justy 4WD to her through an apocalyptic storm.
