Eleven automaker brands were among the top 100 brands ranked by Interbrand in its Best Global Brands Report this year. Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and BMW maintained their position among the top 15 international brands. Nissan and Volkswagen made the largest gains from among automotive brands in the survey. Toyota maintained its No. 11 spot on the survey with a value of $27.8 billion, up 6 percent from the other year.

The survey's values are based on the brand's financial performance, its strength and its role, Interbrand explained. The survey report further stated that Toyota focused on safety and quality, responding to recalls and publicized safety concerns in 2010. Interbrand also said that changing Toyota's leadership structure and making new internal reporting system are two factors that should aid the company in restoring its reputation for "outstanding quality control."
