Volkswagen is the only imported brand to feature in the general Top 10 (9th with 46,707 sales), and it places 2 models on top of the imports ranking: the Golf in #1 at 26,075 sales (0.8%) and the Polo in #2 at 14,507 (0.45%).

The BMW 3 Series is 3rd with 11,664 sales, the first of no less than 5 BMW's in the Top 15, including the Mini at #4 (11,338), the 5 Series at #7 and the X1 at #12. The Mercedes E Class is 5th. Top 15 in pictures and in detail: click on 'Read more' below.

    That’s great info if you’re in Japan and want to import a European spec car. If you’re in Europe, Aisa or the USA however, and want to import a Japanese car, you can go through a broker who can handle all the paperwork and other intricate bits and pieces for you (for a not inconsiderable fee of course), or you can do it yourself. Here’s some info on how you can make that happen. http://www.japimport.info
