June 2015 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 154 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2016 BMW 3-Series
The Toyota Camry was America's best-selling car in June 2015, continuing a streak that dates back to February of this year. But Camry sales, like the figures achieved by the second, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth, and ninth-best-selling cars in June, declined as the U.S. passenger car market fell by nearly 4%.

Many of the Camry's midsize cohorts were among the hardest hit, although the Nissan Altima (down 2.5% this year) was up 13% in June. The Honda Accord's 15% drop was drastic, but the Ford Fusion also slid 8%, the Chevrolet Malibu was down 6%, the Hyundai Sonata plunged 40%, the Kia Optima was down 3%, and the Volkswagen Passat was down 3%.

A number of affordable premium nameplates were increasingly more popular in June 2015 than they were in June 2014. Mercedes-Benz C-Class sales jumped 48% to 8316 units. BMW finally began releasing separate figures for the 3-Series and its 4-Series offshoot. (We're showing them together for another month for consistency's sake through the first-half of 2015.) Although the 4-Series accounts for only 37% of the 3er/4er total so far this year, in June, the 4-Series was responsible for 49% of the duo's U.S. volume, falling just 266 sales shy of the 3-Series.

Honda is often at its best when responding to a recently developed trend with small but perfectly packaged vehicles. Hondas don't need to be the most attractive members in the category because they are often better built and among the most efficient, besides carrying a built-in reputation for reliability.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Freedom edition
Auto sales in the United States grew at a 3.9% rate during the month of June 2015 and have now grown by more than 4% through the first-half of 2015.

This growth has occurred despite falling car sales and the decline of America's best-selling vehicle, Ford's F-Series. America's first, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth-best-selling cars have all sold less often – significantly so, in some cases - through the early part of this year than during the first-half of 2014.

Added to their decreases is the F-Series' 8645-unit decrease. That F-Series loss has enabled the Chevrolet Silverado and its GMC Sierra twin to grab more market share. The pair now on track to outsell the F-Series for the first time in a calendar year since 2009.


Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - June 2015

2015 Toyota Camry XSE V6 red
Canadian sales of passenger cars slid approximately 12% in June 2015 as many of the most popular cars in the country posted harsh declines. 

From the top-selling Honda Civic's 7% year-over-year drop to the declines reported by the third-ranked Mazda 3, fourth-ranked Hyundai Elantra, as well as the sixth, seventh, and eighth-best-selling cars in the country, many of the most common cars in Canada were less commonly bought or leased in June 2015 than they were in June 2014.

However, precisely half of the cars on June 2015's list of the 20 best-selling cars in Canada posted year-over-year improvements. The Toyota Corolla's 15.5% increase was most significant, as that car ranks second only to the Civic (Canada's best-selling car in 17 consecutive years) in terms of June and first-half volume.

2015 Ford Edge white
It took a long time to get here, but Ford finally released a second-generation Edge, its bigger two-row utility vehicle. Canadian sales increased 11% in June 2015 to an all-time record high of 2885 units in June 2015, enough to make the Edge Canada's fifth-best-selling SUV/crossover last month. 

Incidentally, the Edge ranked fourth art this time last year, but many of the Edge's slightly smaller rivals posted bigger gains last month, including a handful of more popular utilities from Toyota, Nissan, and Honda. (The Edge ranked 11th in the 2014 calendar year.)
