How Do I Tell What Country My New Car Really Comes From?

It's very hard to know where any car is really made. It's easy to presume, and be dead wrong. In practice, the car industry does not want you to know.

We've got allegedly German cars built in South Africa, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, the Slovak Republic and Spain. So-called Japanese cars that come from 'Straya, the UK, India and Thailand.We've got notionally American cars coming from Mexico and Canada, and allegedly South Korean cars coming from the Czech Republic and India. There are even French cars coming from South Korea, and Italian cars from Poland.

It's a multi-cultural motoring mish-mash, and the car industry really doesn't want you to think too hard about it. Not on the cusp of writing any big, fat check.
