Japan best selling cars

Japan best selling cars in 2020 is again dominated by the kei-car Honda N-Box, followed by the Nissan Dayz and the Suzuki Spacia. The new entry, the Toyota Raize lands in 6th place with 2.5% of market share.

In the Japanese car market, 73% is represented by the top 50 models while almost 90% is represented by the top 100. During the last decade, the leadership has frequently changed. However, since 2017, the new market leader has been Honda N-Box.

Indeed, after the last year’s market share peak at 5%, the Honda N-Box – despite registering a marginal decline – is still the on top of the list, holding 4.7%. The second position is taken by Nissan Dayz, with 3.6% of market share, ahead of Suzuki Spacia and the Daihatsu Move.

In 6th place we find the regular cars’ leader – entered in the market just 4 months ago – the Toyota Raize, which holds 2.5% of share.
