Anyway you look at it, Japanese family cars are some of the most dependable and reliable vehicles on the road. They come in a variety of mid- to full-size models and even hatchback versions designed for everyday driving in mind.
There is a wide range of Japanese family cars available for you to choose from. You can spend all the money and wrap yourself in the best of luxury or you can buy yourself a basic vehicle to get around town. No matter if you have a large or small budget, you still get the full benefit of Japanese quality in each and every vehicle.
The first Japanese family car on the list is the America’s #1 best-selling car, the 2016 Toyota Camry. The Camry has been at the top of the best-sellers list for many years and there’s a reason it’s been there. 35 mpg highway, spacious cabin space, and comfortable ride has allowed the Camry to be the favorite vehicle of millions of new car shoppers. Powered by your choice of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or 3.5 -liter V-6, the Camry’s entry level price is just under $24,000 and upgraded models can get as high as $35,000, depending on how you want it equipped.
One of the cheapest Japanese family cars you can buy in 2016 is the 2016 Honda Fit with an entry level price of only $15,890. You may think the Honda Fit is too small to be a family car, but thanks to its Magic Seats the Fit has a ton of interior room, enough to compete with most compact SUVs in the marketplace. Its 130 horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 41 mpg on the highway.

Competition Always Gets You the Lowest New Car Price
When negotiating a new car’s price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what’s a good price to pay for the car.
As always, I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
