No longer just reliable transportation.

Japanese cars have long been the epitome of reliability and trustworthiness, with a couple of hiccups here and there (Nissan Pulsar NX, Toyota Paseo). However, they haven’t always been beautiful to look at, unless you’re talking about the original Acura NSX or the Datsun 280ZX.

Their bombproof reliability hasn’t been altered through the generations, either. Here are the ten best rising cars from the land of the rising sun.
