Which Cars Are Made In Mexico?

Which Cars Are Made In Mexico?

Thanks to lower labor costs and free-trade agreements across the globe, automakers are making many of their cars in Mexico. Here is a list of which cars are made in Mexico and sold in the U.S.


Audi Q5:

Audi’s compact crossover is one of the only vehicles from the German automaker to be built in Mexico. While the first generation model was made around the world, including Germany and even India, but the second generation of the vehicle, the one that’s currently on sale now, is made in San José Chiapa, Mexico.


BMW 5 Series Security

BMW makes a few cars in Mexico, but only one specific model is brought to the US and that’s the 5 Series Security, the automaker’s own armored vehicle. It’s made in Toluca, Mexico.


Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab

Most Silverados are made in the USA, but a few Crew Cab models are actually made in GM’s Silao, Mexico plant.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback

Chevrolet Cruze:

All Cruze hatchbacks that sold in the United States are made in Ramos, Mexico plant. However, that’s not the case with the sedan.


Dodge Journey: 

Made in the Tolouca Car Assembly Plant alongside the Fiat 500, the Dodge Journey is available with either a four, or six cylinder engine that can be mated to a front- or all-wheel drive setup. Buyers also have the choice of two or three rows of seating depending on the trim level.

2015 Ram ProMaster

Ram Pickup and Promaster:  

While the majority of Ram pickups and vans are made in the U.S., some Ram pickup trucks and Ram Promaster models are also assembled at Chrysler’s Saltillo Assembly Plant in Coahuila, Mexico.

fiat-500-abarth Fiat 500: 

The Fiat 500 has been assembled in the Tolouca Assembly plant since 2010. The plant also makes the Dodge Journey.

all-new-ford-fiesta Ford Fiesta: 

The Ford Fiesta is currently made in Ford’s Cuautitlán Stamping and Assembly Plant. The plant, which opened in 1964 saw an extensive upgrade in 2010 to accommodate the manufacturing of the new Ford Fiesta for the North American Market.


Ford Fusion: 

Ford’s mid-sized sedan is assembled in the Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly plant. The plant, which opened in 1986, has the capacity to pump out 300,000 vehicles a year.

honda-fit Honda Fit:

While past Fits have been made in Japan, the new generation Honda subcompact is made in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico.

honda-hr-v Honda HR-V: 

The Honda HR-V, which is related to the Fit, is also made in Honda’s Celaya Plant in Mexico.

Infiniti QX30


While the QX30 is currently made in Sunderland, England, Infiniti hasn’t been shy about its intentions to move manufacturing to North America. This is a part of a Damiler-Nissan alliance deal, where the two will share platforms, engines and facilities. The next generation QX50 is also rumored to go to Mexico as well.

Jeep Compass


The Jeep Compass is made in Mexico as well, alongside the Fiat 500 and Dodge Journey. That’s the Toluca Assembly Plant, that employs 3,715.

Kia Forte


Kia launched a new plant in Mexico with the new generation Forte. Located in Monterrey, Mexico the plant is capable of producing 400,000 vehicles annually. The upcoming Forte5 hatchback is scheduled to get made at the plant, and rumor is that the new Rio will as well.

lincoln-mkz Lincoln MKZ: 

Like its Ford cousin, the Fusion, the Lincoln MKZ is made at the Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant.

2017-mazda3 Mazda3:

The Mazda3 is made in the Mazda de Mexico Vehicle Operation plant, is located in Salamanca, in the state of Guanajuato. The first model produced ever made at the plant was a a U.S. market Mazda3 sedan that emerged on January 7 2014.

2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO-671x411

Nissan Sentra:

The Sentra may not be fast, but every 55 seconds, one of Nissan’s compact or subcompact vehicles comes out of one of the plants in Aguascaliente. The plant managed to build 200,000 vehicles within 16 months of opening.

2017 Nissan Versa Note

Nissan Versa Note: 

The Versa and Versa Note are also made in a plant in Aguascaliente Mexico.

Nissan Versa Sedan:

With three plants and the capacity to make 850,000 vehicles annually, Nissan is a pretty heavy investor in Mexican production. Alongside the Versa Note and Sentra, the affordable Versa Sedan is also made in an Aguascaliente plant in Mexico.

The Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo van continues to set the standard for compact cargo van design with its small exterior footprint, large cargo capacity, outstanding versatility and excellent fuel efficiency. It also offers America’s best commercial van warranty, with a basic limited warranty coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain limited warranty term is also 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Nissan NV200: 

The 2017 Nissan NV200, and the Chevrolet City Express is made in Cuernavaca, Mexico.


Toyota Yaris iA: 

The MMVO plant that makes the Mazda3 also makes Mazda2s, which aren’t sold in the US. Instead we get the same vehicle as the Toyota Yaris iA.


Toyota Tacoma: 

Assembly of the Tacoma is split between the U.S. and Mexico. The Toyota Manufacturing de Baja California Plant was established in 2002 and makes both Tacoma trucks and Tacoma truck beds.


VW Jetta:

Made in the Puebla plant in Mexico, the sixth generation Volkswagen Jetta was primarily designed by Volkswagen Mexico under the supervision of Volkswagen Germany and 70 percent of the parts are designed and manufactured in Mexico.


VW Golf: 

Like the Jetta, the Golf is made in the Puebla plant in Mexico, however, unlike the Jetta, the hatchback uses the new MQB modular platform that is shared with the Audi A3.


VW Tiguan

The second generation Tiguan is slated to be made in a VW Mexico plant as well, and that’s the one we’ll be getting here in the US.

  • John

    Isn’t the Fusion also made in Flat Rock Michigan Plant?

  • craigcole

    That’s correct. The Lincoln MKZ is also assembled there.

  • Jonny_Vancouver

    So how much does it affect the overall quality of the vehicle being made in Mexico vs the U.S., Canada, Japan etc?

  • guest

    The new Camaro along with the ATS and CTS Cadillacs are being built at the old Oldsmobile plant in Lansing Michigan can’t wait to trade my Camaro in on a new one :o)

  • Kaahk

    There should be no difference as to where they are made, Mazda as an example would use the same measures of quality and machinery regardless of the country.

  • Alex

    All of the Fords being recalled for doors “flying open” were made in Mexico. I’ll stick to cars being made in countries with higher manufacturing standards.

  • Kaahk

    Oh and have you looked up all the other recalls for cars and where those cars were made ? Im sure you would find over the years they were from the U.S. Manufacturing standards have to be the same in order to be coming into the country. Its not like in Mexico they say “hey lets just make them how we want to and then oh ya lets go have some tequila also for break”. Think about it, it’s the companies reputation on the line.

  • luke7478

    Anybody stupid enough to buy a car made in Mexico deserves what they get (regardless of Manufacturer). vehicles made in Japan have the absolute highest build quality. Then comes Canada and USA, with SLIGHTLY lower build quality (Toyota is especially good at maintaining the quality level of vehicles built outside of Japan).

    And don’t even get me started on vehicles built in a 3rd world country like Mexico. Absolutely garbage (go to the Honda FIT forums and see how many problems they are having. Compare that to previous FITs that were built in Japan with a near-ZERO problem level)

  • Ellaine Spivak

    really?? live here, have bought and never had a problem. As a matter of fact? Much BETTER results. stop bashing if you don’t have the facts. truly.

  • Krampus

    I check everything I buy and refuse to buy anything from mexico PERIOD. Don’t like it? Who gives a rat’s ass what you do or don’t like. Because I sure as hell dont

  • StoptheIgnorance

    I cannot believe the ignorant statements made below. 11% of all vehicles sold in the U.S. are made in Mexico. Nissan is more of a Mexican Company now, than a Japanese company and they’re treating their employees well. Assistance with mortgages, scholarships, management training, health insurance. Audi recently chose Mexico over Chattanooga TN for two reasons: they have a trade agreement with Europe and many Asian countries AND the government doesn’t interfere with the workers ability to unionize. TN blocked it at the VW plant. Ever dollar spent on a Mexican product, .60 cents come back because they purchase so many U.S. products/parts. Our economies are intertwined and I suspect racism fuels much of the animosity below. How many of you have traveled throughout Mexico? The last 30 years have seen astonishing change.

  • Brian C

    Not a chance. Canada has the highest quality rating by any company ever under JD power for the lexUS. Even higher then Japan. Canada is #1

  • Ben gazi

    Yeah becuase all our american jobs and money went there because of shi tty presidents. Maga trump !2016

  • Ben gazi

    Bul lshit. Any vehicle made in mexico is sh it. Shills fakeing news

  • bil

    the first year of Tacoma production from Mexico the MSRP went up 20% TToyota saved money across the board on production and raised the price. It’s a myth low cost production is passed to consumer benefit

  • disqus_SWe1pH5gM2

    So basically most of the worst cars on the road are made in Mexico.

  • Noel

    A quick internet search for the MSRPs of models years from around the time of the 2002 move shows this isn’t true. The MSRP of a Reg Cab Manual 4WD went from $16,255.00 in 2001, to $16,310.00 in 2002 to $16,610.00 in 2003.

    Oh, in case you bad at math, 20% of $16,000.00 is $3200.00.

  • russ

    WE had a large bath of weed eaters mfg. in US. but electronic parts made in Mexico and had a large fa liar rate. the company rep told us that parts made in Mexico if you got one good one out of 50 that was figured to be a good rate. made for a lot of bad product and the company finally went belly up.

  • Patrick Sills

    Where a car’s final assembly is located has nothing to do with its quality or lack thereof. It’s the BRAND that matters. A Ford is a Ford whether it comes from Detroit or Mexico, a VW is a VW whether it comes from Germany or Mexico or the US, etc..

  • Gary Womack

    if you want the real truth , gather information on warranty claims from the dealerships of the different automakers that is where the money shot is. In the 80s I was the head painter at a ford dealership that also had a Toyota franchise, we would do 10 fords to 1Toyota.I’m not saying Toyota is the best but quality was a higher priority for Toyota back then.

  • Mike

    It still is. Look at the reliability surveys. Toyota and Lexus is top year after year after stinking year.

  • Mike

    Trump. LMAO. Lowly educated voter. Trump is costing the taxpayers millions with his trips to Florida every weekend. Wake up.

  • Mike

    You may be sort of right. Toyota standards are set high no matter where they build. My old Yaris was built in France. Top notch. Honda’s Fit and HRV is made in Mexico and quality is only average. Almost identical vehicles. The old Japanese Fits were wonderful. The new Fits have bad quality CVTs and other issues. Honda as a whole is on a downward spiral. Even the new Civic, as nice as it is for the price, is a quality nightmare. The Ridgeline is a nightmare too.

  • bil

    start by researching the year they closed the New Motor Plant in Fremont , that produced the Tacoma, then the year after Tacoma production in Mexico. WTF r u looking at 2001 2003 for? Get back to me…

  • your mom

    Fu c off . Did you say anything when ovomit took 300 plus golfing trips
    Or when that Muslim invader gave away millions to our enemies. Put down the Crack pipe dumb as s

  • Noel

    Toyota Motor Manufacturing de Baja California (TMMBC) opened in 2002 and they started building some Tacomas there. Toyota shuttered the Nummi plant in 2010 (after GM pulled out in 2009) they moved the Tacoma production from there to their Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas, Inc (TMMTX) in San Antonio.

  • Zachary Smith

    I don’t buy into those surveys. People who buy cheaper American cars also complain about them. Those who buy more expensive foreign models don’t readily admit to their car’s failings

  • bil

    ur still not there, Tacomas were built in Fremont until 2010 Believe what u want but u r wrong on this subject http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=125430405

  • Noel

    Yes Tacomas were were built in Fremont and the Fremont plant closed, that’s not in dispute. That’s all your link says. What I disputed was that the MSRP of Tacomas went up 20% when production then “moved” to Mexico. Your link fails to corroborate this (mainly because it’s not true) so I can not imagine how it proves me wrong.

    Now since you like links, here’s a couple from me:
    Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, Inc. (TMMTX) Fact Sheet.
    (TL;DR version just for you Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, Inc. (TMMTX) Products: Tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks. This is where Toyota moved the production in Fremont to)

    Toyota Motor Manufacturing de Baja California, S. de R.L. de C.V. (TMMBC) Fact Sheet
    (TL;DR Groundbreaking: 2003 Products: Toyota Tacoma and Tacoma beds)

  • bil

    well they did, from 30 to over 44k

  • Noel

    Show me evidence of a this price increase using the same body style and trim level and the two specific consecutive model years that illustrate this “20% increase”

    Also an increase of $30,000 to $44,000 would be an increase of 46%, further proof to my mind you’re talking out of your ass.

  • bil

    good luck

  • Noel

    So “Good luck” must translate to “I’ve got nothing to back up my bs”.
    Got it.

  • bil

    good luck means I’m done with this conversation. I know my case to be fact bc I bought a tacoma the last year they were made in Fremont, mine was a loaded pre runner 4 dr 32k, the year first year of tacoma production from baja the same truck was 42k. When companies move production to exploit cheaper labor markets they never adjust the products price down so y would make sense to raise prices when product mfg is moved back to the states. I don’t want to argue with you. enjoy life good luck bil

  • RobRex2010

    Trump’s son-in-law’s overseas travels in the first month and Trump’s little jaunts to his Florida resort combined …. and not including the cost of his visits to Trump Tower are on a pace to make one Month of Trump’s family personal travel equal to just a little under one year of Obama’s…

  • MrM3000

    This isn’t news. You’ve probably owned a Mexican-assembled car at some point if you’re old enough. Lots of companies have been assembling their vehicles in Mexico for the better part of 6 decades.
    Ford and GM were some of the first to open plants in Mexico. VW and Nissan both have a presence there since at least the 70s.
    The workers there do a fairly good job especially considering the low wages. No need to get all up in arms because Trump tells you to.

  • MrM3000

    The manufacturing standards aren’t set by countries, they’re set by the manufacturer. Therefore it doesn’t really matter much where the vehicle is assembled. The first gen Focus was a POS regardless of the final assembly location.

  • 123456789bb

    So the Ford Fusion is Mexican but the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, and Toyota Camry are made-in-USA. Very good.

  • 123456789bb

    Nonsense. People who buy expensive cars have higher expectations and are more likely to complain if encountering issues.

  • 123456789bb

    Exactly. Trump has blown $16.5 million on seven golf vacations in under two months.

  • Paul Verstraete

    i remember when vw tried to unionize in the south us states, and our corrupt dumbass politicians kept it from happening….the uaw is a mess, ive worked enough car plants here to see it…..who can blame vw…..sad, i am union and whats funny is germany is way more union than the usa……a new rant….you prosthletiser idiots who rant about how foreign cars are bad, understand the highest percentage chance of buying an american made car (i found 71% could be wrong) is to buy a toyota get mad at the automakers not people who merely want to buy a superior product…..

  • Paul Verstraete

    i have a friend who bought a fusion hybrid…made in mexico like so many other fusions……

  • Zachary Smith

    I agree to disagree. In addition, people who have a lot of money, or think they do, don’t really know vehicles very well and have rarely worked on one. They would fall into the category of “This light came on, but, I managed to get it home.”

  • Jerry G.

    It looks like many the most popular and affordable quality type vehicles Americans like to buy are going to become a lot more expensive. If the sales of these models slump too low the auto manufactures will stop bringing them in to the US. This will lead to loss of jobs for the people who work in the importation and sales of these vehicles.

    Many of the locally built vehicles in the US are using parts manufactured in Mexico and then shipped to the assembly plants in the US. Many of these vehicles can have as much as 30/% of their parts made in Mexico, and some from other countries in Asia and the EU. The auto industries are very global. Much of the technology and parts engineering is global between the different manufactures. They compete for sales and markets, but they share under agreement much of their technology.

    In the end the American citizens are going to pay for the wall if it can ever be built, and they will find losses of jobs if there will be additional taxes for products coming in to the US from Mexico and other countries. These other countries can retaliate by not buying billions of dollars in US products, and or taxing the US products in their country. They will buy equivalent or the same types of products from other countries. This type of retaliation can be called a type of trade war. Not very good for all sides!

    The exporting of immigrants who are doing the jobs the local people do not want to do is another thing that will be costly in the end. Employers have paid out cost for training and have become dependent on these workers. These workers have mortgages, bank loans, and are consumers. If these people are deported, it is the banks and mortgage companies that will be stuck with the unpaid loans. There will be less people buying various products, and thus will decrease business for many of the retailers.

    Most of the high tech scientific people from other countries are very well educated and very specialized. The US companies employ these people because they cannot find local people who can fill in to these types of jobs. The US educational system cannot turn out these levels of scientists, researchers, developers, and engineers. Most of these types come from China, India, some from Canada, and Eastern Europe.

  • Reg

    Expensive?? hard to find a decent truck anymore. I will only buy a car made either in Canada or the USA,

  • Rafael Solorzano

    GM makes cars in China, Canada & Mexico observing US DOT regulations.

  • Arnulfo Duran

    No there are made in Mexico as well
