Speaking in particular about Israel, oddly enough, Korean and Japanese car brands predominate at the top. As you can see, the first place among all brands has been occupied for several years by the South Korean car brand – Hyundai. Hyundai and KIA are the two most popular foreign brands in the Israeli car market. They take the first and the third place in the sales ranking. For both asian brands, the most important factors are the appearance and the optimal price-quality ratio. Both brands combine a simple and concise design and comfort. Hyundai Ioniq became the most purchased car in 2021. By the way, more than 50 percent of Hyundai car purchases were made by leasing companies and institutions.

Toyota is the largest and most successful Japanese car manufacturing company. Sedans from this Japanese company, especially Corolla, Land Cruiser and Fortuner, enjoy great success among Israelis. If you’re considering a Toyota Corolla, you may be wondering, How long do Toyota Corollas last? With regular service and maintenance, the Toyota Corolla has a life expectancy of up to 10 years or 300,000 miles which makes a big advantage for its owner. They have high stability and rigid suspension, which allows to travel long distances off-road without problems. That is why the Toyota Corolla has become the most popular model of cars for families with children.


Cars of the Czech Skoda brand are consistently among the five most popular cars in Israel. Skoda has a very spacious interior and a very large trunk, which is why it is a very difficult task to find competitors in their middle class. Also skoda is considered to be very reliable, in fact, that they’ve topped quite a few dependability tables in the past few years.


The Japanese company Mitsubishi is gaining popularity in the market. It has existed for several centuries, and during this period the company managed to earn a positive reputation. Now the Mitsubishi company occupies a leading position in terms of sales. Many residents of Israel choose a car because of its practicality, accessibility and favorable cost.

In the premium class category, brands such as Audi, Mercedes, BMW and Lexus are leading. The most imported sports car is the Chevrolet Corvette C8. Now, we hope it will be much easier for you to make the right choice of buying a car in Israel. You can focus not only on the parameters of the car and its appearance, but also on how much public recognition it has, which means the quality has been tested by time. Choose the best car model for yourself and enjoy the trip.
