Trust me, there are alot more Toyotas out there than Hondas. Toyota produces roughly 7.1 million cars/light commercial vehicles each year, the 2nd largest in the world after GM which makes about 9 million. Honda is ranked 8th in the world at about 3.3 million each year.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_autom...by_manufacturerThose statistics are from 2005, which are probably still close to todays figures.
I don't like the new Honda Accord design, with those big, ugly taillights. I guess its that I don't like Honda in general. Its just my personal bias. Thier designs and cars are just bland and unoriginal. In my opinion, Toyota/Lexus has made much better cars than Honda/Acura. Toyota has made so many legendary cars like the Supra, the Celica, the Lexus SC400, and the Lexus LS400. Along with that, the Corolla has maintained itself as the most successful and best selling nameplate in automotive history at 32 million. The Civic is far behind at just 16 million. Also, the Camry has been the best selling car in the last 10 years, taking the lead over the Accord. Sure Honda makes reliable cars as well, but it takes more than reliablity to create legends.
There may be more Toyotas out there, but in my area, I notice more Hondas than Toyotas.
I think Toyota design is much better than Honda, as well.
