Which offers better performance, European or Japanese cars?

"European cars have a reputation for superior performance, but is this accurate? Are they better than Japanese models?


“In general, yes, European cars offer superior performance, if you’re comparing apples to apples. European cars generally accelerate faster and handle better, and many of the higher-end models can be every bit as reliable as Japanese vehicles. However, Japanese automakers do have a better reputation overall when it comes to reliability. “
