TOP 20 Most Durable Car Models: Toyota No. 1!

Toyota dominates this list, capturing four out of the top six slots–Toyota Rules the Road!

Most Durable Car Models

I believe that durability and reliability are important factors for many consumers when buying a car. Recently, iSeeCars, an online automotive research company, released a survey report on a car's potential longest service life, listing the twenty cars with the highest mileage.

iSeeCars analyzed cars from the past 20 years that were in production for at least ten years and sold more than 2 million units. They ranked each car based on the number of miles driven. The top 20 cars are 1% of the cars on the road, with an average of 230,000 to 297,000 miles (approximately 370,000 to 480,000 km) over the past 20 years.

According to the ranking list, the top two vehicles are the Toyota Sequoia and Land Cruiser, with a mileage exceeding 450,000km. In addition, there are three Toyota Hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles―Prius, Highlander, and Camry―and the models with the highest proportion in the list are SUV and Pickup.

Toyota scored the top spot with ten vehicles on the list, followed by 3 Hondas, 2 Chevrolets, and 2 GMCs. Here's a list of the twenty most durable cars:

According to Karl Brauer, executive analyst at iSeeCars, "Many car models can last over 250,000 miles (402336 km) if properly maintained." The survey doesn't report the longest lifespan of these vehicles; that's just the current odometer count. Most of these cars are still in use, and it's powerful.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to durability, Toyota is the clear leader here. This is no surprise to many people who are familiar with the brand. They are known for their solid, efficient, and dependable vehicles that last for about 200k miles without a hiccup. So, if you're looking for a reliable car, look no further than Toyota.
