The Japanese love European brands, and Mercedez is tops in the auto world.
What do wealthy Japanese consider as the world’s best luxury cars? Hint: It’s not highly regarded Japanese-produced Acuras, Infinitis or even Lexuses. It’s Mercedes-Benz, followed by Porsche and finally Lexus. Seems odd that German luxury cars would hold sway in a land where the domestically produced choices are known to offer so much in reliability and exacting quality. But it’s not a surprise to Milton Pedraza, CEO of the Luxury Institute, which conducted the online survey that looked at attitudes toward 20 car brands among Japanese households with annual income more than $525,000. – From USA Today
