Which Turbo Kei Cars can you import from Japan?
Import is easy and regulations are the same as their Kei truck cousins. However, duty is often lower as they are classified as passenger vehicles.

Australians can only import first-generation models produced before 1989. Americans can import first and second-generation models. Canadians can import first, second and third-generation models originally sold up to 2001. And lucky British customers can import any models sold up to 2006.

Each generation became larger and more powerful.
Each generation represents the response of carmakers to new Japanese government regulations increasing maximum allowable vehicle size and engine displacement.

Performance, size, weight and refinement generally increased over the years. But the biggest difference you will find over the generations are the amenities that make these cars some comfortable to drive.
