Driven: At the American auto show: Beauties and beast.

Byline: Mike Rutherford

JAPANESE firms are very successful in the US - and not because they undercut Detroit-based manufacturing giants.

The vehicles built by these Asian firms tend to look pricey and are usually of higher quality and tailored precisely to the sometimes extraordinary requirements of American buyers.

Toyota has just unveiled the brutally handsome, 19ft long, 7ft wide FTX while arch rival Honda has its first ever US pick-up - the SUT (sport utility truck).

As you can see, Toyota definitely wins the beauty prize.

CAPTION(S):

BREEDING: The 19ft-long Toyota FTX; BRUTE: Honda SUT is ugliest at show
