The Indian car market is huge with a lot of car manufactures offering many cars. While buying a car of any segment in India one has a variety of options to choose from. While there are many cars from different manufacturers in every segment we Indians often buy cars from Japanese manufacturers. Some of the famous Japanese brands in India are Suzuki, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, etc. Suzuki has taken about 50% of the Indian car market. But what is so special in Japanese cars that the majority of Indian car buyers buy them? Let's find out!
The major reason why people buy Japanese cars is that they are very reliable, their maintenance cost is very low, they are fuel-efficient and they are built to last. The average life of an engine is about 1,60,000 Km(if maintained well) but we have observed Japanese car owners driving them up to 3,00,000 Km!! and still they drive just fine.
The majority of Indian car buyers are non-automobile enthusiast and focus more on fuel efficiency instead of things like braking and handling.
2. Cheaper spare parts
Japanese car parts are available in almost every spare part shop and they are cheaper to replace compared to other cars.
3. After-Sales Service
Almost every car company offers decently good after-sales services but Japanese ones are a little cheaper.
One Demerit of these cars is that they don't offer good build quality compared to other car brands.
