Japanese automakers probably have the most solid record of delivering reliable car models to the market, which also combine competitive performance characteristics and the most innovative tech.

Lets take a look at the 2019 newcomers and the already announced 2020 models from Japan to decide if their cars are going to be worth our money!

The all-new Toyota Supra became one of those car models that divide the automotive community into two opposing camps.
