Toyota Wins the Battle of Being the Longest Lasting Car - Concerning Miles

Cars built in the 1960s and 1970s barely passed the 100,000 miles mark. That is not the case anymore. Now cars pass the 200,000 miles mark easily before they fall apart or some problem arises.

In a recent study, data of 2 million cars were analyzed from January to October 2022. The study was conducted to check which cars could pass the 200,000 miles benchmark. All kinds of cars weren’t included since newer models have upgraded features. Car models produced in the last ten years were excluded from the study.

What was interesting is that all the cars in the Sedan and Hatchback list, except for one, that made it to the top 10 list were Japanese-manufactured cars. The one that was not made in Japan was the Chevrolet Impala. It is the most commonly used car in the US and is rented out the most too.

Another interesting fact was that the only Luxury brand present on the list was Lexus. Does this mean that luxury cars aren’t made to last? We hope not. Another reason could be that Lexus and Toyota share similar internal components meaning Lexus is as sturdy as Toyota.

In the SUV list, both Japanese and American cars shared an equal ratio with Toyota Tundra leading the way. Among the Truck list, Japanese models lead the way in terms of durability but American ones win the popularity contest here.

Another kind tested was Electric cars. Due to the 10-year constraint, only 2 models could be tested. One of these belongs to Toyota while the other is a Nissan. The comparison between these and fuel-run cars isn’t fair. Electric cars don’t show promising results but then how long have they even been around? We will have to wait at least another 10 years until we can assess their capability.

For now, Toyota cars are leading the way since they’ve occupied the list like no other brand.
