A armoured car of some type from AWM.
"BATAVIA, JAVA. 1945-09-25"
"JAPANESE ARMOURED CARS AND OTHER ARMOURED FIGHTING VEHICLES PATROLLING THE STREETS OF BATAVIA."

The a similar vehicle appears on an issue of J-Tank taken from Muw's Toybox http://homepage3.nifty.com/muwsan/

It is Renault Armored Car in 1920s. It is utterly different car.

They are Marmon-Herrington armored cars. They were captured from the Dutch on Java.

8O I can't say it does, the Sd.Kfz 221 had much more sloped armour and was more angular than this machine.

compare: picture is from http://docvid.ru/blog/2010-05-21-4

1. Sumida/Isuzu Type 93 car on the right.
2. Here is a Isuzu Type 94 with a trailer, which seems to be a makeshift platform for a AA gun.

From eBay seller Bannjyou

These cars are for the competition of the successor to Type 95 passanger car. Some motorcar companies like Daihatsu, Okamoto, Kurogane developed new cars. But, none of them was adopted and they ended only with trials.

Kurogane developed an improved model of Type 95. But, it could not fulfill the requirements of the Army that it must be cheaper and lighter than Type 95.

P.S.
To be exact, it is not a competition of the successor, but the cheaper and lighter model than Type 95. It was called Light 4WD.
