What makes an iconic car? Design? Mind-blowing features? Good old fashioned reliability? A look at some of our all-time favorites sheds some light on what makes them so special.
If you’re looking for a car to buy, the chances are that someone has already recommended the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Toyota Corolla. You’ve probably seen many for sale listed on TRED. And now you think about it, they seem to be everywhere. We know a thing or two about cars here at TRED, and we think we have the answer.
These cars go on and on. In fact, the Camry, Accord and Corolla have built their reputation on their impressive reliability. In the past, American cars had a checkered reputation when it came to reliability – Toyota and Honda spotted a gap in the market and filled it. Car buyers who were looking for dependable, well-designed vehicles knew these models would provide them with exactly what they wanted. And so their status as the most reliable cars available was born.
Of course, American cars are now high up the reliability roll of honor. But, dependability remains one of the characteristics associated with the Camry, Accord and Corolla. Moreover, subsequent models have continued to build on this reputation, and unsurprisingly, buyers continue to gravitate towards them in impressive numbers.
The designers of our best loved cars have done something very, very clever when it comes to design. They’ve created cars that appeal to everyone. Are you a parent looking for a roomy interior to accommodate the kids’ sports gear, and baby’s car seat and stroller? Easy – look at the Camry, Accord or Corolla.
