Two of the most popular car brands in the United States are actually Japanese. We’re sure you know we’re talking about Honda and Toyota. Both brands are known for their reliability and longevity, so what’s really the difference? We’ll tell you.
At its heart, Honda is really an engine manufacturer. From there, it grew into a production giant for a wide range of products that use engines, from small outdoor yard equipment to large private jets, and, of course, vehicles.
When it comes to its vehicles, Honda’s main priorities are producing high-quality vehicles that the owner will enjoy driving. Each vehicle tends to have its own style and presence to distinguish itself from the rest of the lineup.
Toyota, on the other hand, is focused more on reliability than on a driver’s experience. Toyota also has a somewhat cohesive design language and vehicle layout. Much of the Toyota lineup will drive in a similar way and it is easy to see the similarities in control layout among the vehicles’ interiors.
In the end, Honda and Toyota do have many similarities, but for a driver who wants something that will make them excited to hit the road every day, while still delivering reliability, Honda is the best choice.
