Why Australians Love Japanese Cars | Phil Gilbert Toyota

Why Australians Love Japanese Cars

The first Toyotas were introduced to Australians in the 1950s, but it was in the mid to late 1960s that we really got a good choice of models, 32 in all. At first glance, it’s easy to see why Toyotas are so popular here. Australia is a big country and we need reliable, economical vehicles to get us where we want to go, a big part of it is Toyota’s ability to adapt their vehicles to our unique lifestyle and predict what we need. Plus, it’s not just Toyotas; Australians love Japanese cars for their style and technology, which always seems to be way ahead of other car manufacturers. Here are some of the reasons why Japanese cars are so well-liked in this country.

Reliable and Durable

The Japanese government has strict quality standards for every vehicle manufactured and they strive for quality not quantity, so you know you’re getting a superior car. You only have to look at a used Japanese car to see that it still looks great, even cars that are over 20 years old. Older Japanese cars have a sleek design that was way ahead of its time, so they age well. You rarely see a Japanese car broken down on the side of the road, and it’s this reliability that makes them the first choice for many car buyers.

Higher Resale Value

Japanese cars tend to be a little lower in price and hold their value much better than most cars. When you can finally bear to part with your trusty Japanese car, you might be surprised at how much it’s still worth.

More Economical

You’ll get all the performance you expect while using less fuel, and that’s something we all want. Typically smaller and more compact, even larger Japanese SUVs and 4WDs have better fuel efficiency than many of their non-Japanese counterparts. For someone living in the city, a small Japanese car is perfect for getting around in style and comfort with easy parking and manoeuvrability.

Advanced Technology and Eco-Friendly

When you’re inside a Japanese car, there are so many useful and innovative features that you’ll wonder why no one else thought of them before. Japanese technology is well-known for being some of the best, and when it’s incorporated into cars, it’s easy to see why Japanese cars are so popular. The advanced technology extends to environmentally-friendly Hybrids and electric cars that reduce your carbon footprint. Even the petrol-powered cars have strict environmental standards to make them greener than your average car.
