South America

Suzuki Grand Vitara for South American trip?

Hi everyone,

My girlfriend and I are considering a 1 year break from our lives in Paris. The general idea is to purchase a car, most likely in Chile based on other travelers' advice, and around South America (or part of it).

From what I have read, 4x4 seems to be a good idea. We don't inted to offroad for the sake of it, but we like the idea of being able to reach potentially remote areas where no paved road goes. Unlike most overlanders, we expect to be staying in budget hostels / hotels most of the time, so fitting the vehicle is not an issue for us.

Selling car from South America (Brazil/Argentina/Chile) in US/Canada

I am planning to travel from South America (Brazil) up to Canada. There's only one detail about the trip:

I'll be moving to Canada, so I want to keep my car (or sell and buy another one).

I understand it's hard to (if not impossible) to import used south american cars to US/Canada, unless the car is 15years old (or older). Is this information correct?
