Top 10 Reasons To Drive A Japanese Vehicle

There are so many reasons to drive a Japanese vehicle, it’s hard to limit it to just 10. From a basic commuter model like the Honda Civic (that can also be tricked out!) to a Nissan GT-R, there’s something for everyone. 

Efficiency: Even the gasoline-powered models tend to have high fuel efficiency. When it comes to hybrid and electric, not only are the leading the pack when it comes to getting more and more out our a single charge, they are working hard to make them more and more stylish. 

Practicality: Since there are so many on our roadways, it means that parts are readily available. It also means that our mechanics who work on them are VERY familiar and well trained because they work on them so often. What that means for you is lower costs when it comes to parts and labor.

Innovation: They are also at the head of the pack when it comes to style, performance, overall efficiency. They are smart, futuristic, and contemporary. They are continually looking for ways to change the industry and that is something that sets them apart from many other countries when it comes to automaking. 

Technology: You can’t deny that Asia is always at the forefront of technology when it comes to gadgets and phones and such. This bleeds over to the auto industry and they are always implementing new technologies on their vehicles to improve performance, comfort, and efficiency. 

Trucks: Twenty years ago you would have never looked to the Japanese market for a truck. Today, that is simply not so. Not only do they tend to have amazing storage space, but they also give you more for your money when it comes to fuel efficiency, comfort, and technology. 

Testing: All cars go through testing, but the Japanese are fastidious when it comes to safety. In fact, every single car is thoroughly tested before it leaves the factory. 

Costs: Japanese cars are fun to drive, fuel-efficient, and will cost you less money in the beginning ad over time. They are competitively priced and their maintenance and repairs tend to be lower than many (if not most) other vehicles from around the world.

Classics: No kid grew up idolizing an Oldsmobile, but how many of us coveted the RX-7 (or 8!), Honda S2000, or a Toyota Supra? There are still popular in the vintage market today.  

Performance: Tuned, enhanced, and ready to roll! Japanese cars dominate the rally championship arena in both performance and looks. Subaru, Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Nissan lead the way when it comes to performance on and off the rally roads. 

Original styling: The Japanese used to be flat out copy cats, but that is no longer the case. In fact, when you see what they are putting out on the concept floors, it is undeniable that they think way outside the box on many levels.
