The Best Cars From the Land of the Rising Sun

Japanese vehicles enjoy an enviable reputation for quality and value, regardless of price. Ironically, the manufacturing techniques needed to reach this pinnacle of success came in part from the adoption of the approaches, techniques, and philosophy of American quality guru Edwards Deming. Ignored by Detroit, Deming worked with the Japanese, helping that country become the world’s second largest economy at one point.

Now, as Japanese automakers have built factories in other countries, they have demonstrated that their approaches to quality are transferable to other nations and cultures. As a result, Japanese automakers have earned the trust of countless customers.

Here are some of the best vehicles, in all price ranges, that Japanese manufacturers have to offer, based on U.S. News and World Report's new vehicle rankings.
