Interesting thread, i thought it can generate lot of thoughts in out forum too. Japanese or European cars? Whats your pick in India? - Team-BHP European Cars - Better build quality - Increased stability - Safer (generally) - More expensive to maintain - Technological innovators Japanese/Korean Cars: - Lighter and therefore more FE - More reliable (in some cases) - Cheaper to maintain (generally) - Mass-produce new technologies. And make them more reliable. I love Japanese cars, but would pick European steeds over them. For me, it will always be Octavia over Corolla, Palio over Swift / Getz (maybe) and the Mercedes C Class over the new Camry (Similarly priced). I must add that I was a hardcore Jap boy before, but being with Team-BHP (and the subsequent information) has made me a convert. Whats your vote?
