About This Quiz

What's not to love about Japanese cars?

Since the late 1950s, car makers such as Toyota, Subaru, Nissan, and Mazda have produced some amazing models.

The auto industry in Japan rose out of the ashes of a nation heavily defeated in World War II. Many of these companies had helped with the war effort and now turned their attention toward peacetime activities. As with most things in Japan, they certainly made a massive success of it.

Japanese cars started out small but soon, larger models were not only appearing on the streets of the country but were also being exported. That doesn't mean the small city class car disappeared. In fact, the Kei cars, as they are known today, continue to thrive. And some are truly bizarre looking. One thing you can be sure of, they are never boring. This is one class of car that is mostly found only in Japan. Not many Kei car models are exported.

That's just one type of vehicle you will find in the Japanese domestic car market.

There are many others and in this quiz, we will test your knowledge of both their names and their makers. Do you think you have what it takes to come out on top?

Good luck!
