Japanese cars are a class apart in every way. They have years of rapport attached to it as well as our value for money. These are vehicles are some of the most technologically equipped vehicles in the market today. But this wasn’t easy on the part of Japanese. They had to adopt certain approaches, techniques and followed the advice of American guru(s).
With time Japanese automobile makers were able to enact factories in different parts of the world and were able to register themselves as someone whose approach was transferable and can be mapped to different nations and cultures. Therefore, earning the patronage was a cakewalk from thereon.
Talking of Japanese cars for sale, let us see some of the best that Japan has to offer in terms of cars as follows:
This one of the top quality subcompact cars out there. It boasts an impressive looking interior and a lot of room for flexibility. In addition, fuel efficiency and fun experience to drive. There are hardly any cars such as Honda Fit which come in that size and yet is able to be as practical as Honda Fit is.
The feature that tops it all is the ability to encompass 6-foot passengers easily both in the front and rear seats. If it is the cargo that you are worried about then you can flip the rear seat or can fold it flat to make space for your cargo including a variety of items which would have been otherwise difficult to carry, had it been any other car.
However, you will notice that the car is a bit noisy and can eat a lot of power but since its pluses outweigh the minuses, these shortcomings are often neglected. Not only that because it comes at a base price of only $16,090.
Another compact vehicle but this time from the house of Mazda in the form of CX-5. It is an SUV and packs a smooth ride as well boasts an impressive behind the wheel handling. CX-5 also packs an amazing amount of room on the inside.
The model is built for the year 2017 and with comfortable seats, up to four adults can fit and feel at ease. The design of its cabin and material grants it an upscale look. You will notice it is embedded with blind spot monitoring and provides you with rear traffic alerts. Each car is coming inbuilt with backup camera and low-speed automatic braking mechanism in place.
This model from Mazda stands out for a reason. Firstly, it offers superb handling and secondly, has an equally superb interior room to allow for long trips to become memorable. It also offers impressive fuel economy, however, Mazda3 back seat and trunk are small since it is a sedan.
But if you observe closely, the ‘3’ in Mazda mean it acts as a hatchback too. This may not contribute to an increase in rear seat room but the space for cargo increase by approximately 63 % i.e. 20.2 cubic feet. Other features that makeup Mazda3 is the backup camera, low-speed automatic braking, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, and forward collision warning etc.
The new Toyota Prius is an upgrade to the well-received Prius model of 2016 and is one of the leading hybrid cars today. It is more than just a typical compact car of yours. It is relatively larger. Fuel efficiency is stupendous, immense cargo space, offers the smooth ride and the noise levels are minimal when you are driving on a highway.
According to one study, the fuel accounts for 54 mpg while in the city and amounts to 50 mpg while being on the highway. In the 2017 version, the Safety Suite has been embedded by default and is not an option anymore. It will include a rearview camera, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control among other things.
Lexus RX 350
This falls into the luxury category. It is both comfortable and houses enough space for the passengers. Packs a sedan-like comfort but is mid-sized luxurious SUV too. Cargo space may not be that much when compared with its rivals but that does not undermine it in any way.
Behind the seats, you have 18.4 cubic feet and you get 56.3 cubic feet of space when those same seats are folded. It has an eight-speed automatic transmission combined with its engine makes it a performance powerhouse.
Lexus RX is now packed with Lexus Safety System which means that every RX 350 will have forward collision warning, pedestrian braking, lane departure warning in addition to, lane keep assist.
When Honda first came on to the scene it made its reputation by creating high-end cars yet small in size and Honda Civic is a testament to that. It can be categorized as a sedan, coupe or hatchback. Coupes and sedans are usually powered by a 2.0 liter, 158 horsepower four-cylinder engine with lower trim levels.
However, if it is a smaller one then it packs an even powerful 1.5-liter turbocharged motor rated at 174 horsepower through all hatchbacks are known for consuming 1.5-liter motor. Honda has now integrated Honda Sensing system in all Civics which includes features like automatic (CVT) transmission plus forward collision warning, lane keeps assist, adaptive cruise control and so on so forth.
For sedans and hatchbacks, this can be an option or serve as a standard feature. Same goes for upper-trim coupes.
This is most sought after sedan in the whole of America. This is a mid-sized car and packs a comfortable ride, a huge backseat room has high safety scores and is known for its excellent reputation in terms of consistency.
As a customer, you have the choice to select from 178 horsepower four-cylinder engine or from 268 horsepower V6 engine. Usually, buyers settle for the four-cylinder engine as it gives optimum performance.
