Top 25 Best-Selling Cars In America - 2013 Year End

2012 Toyota Camry silver
The Toyota Camry was the best-selling car in America in 2013, the twelfth such year the Camry has achieved best seller status in the last twelve years. The Honda Accord trailed the Camry by 41,806 sales, a much tighter gap than the 73,014-unit differential in 2012. Camry sales rose just 0.9% in 2013; Accord volume was up 10.5%.

Together, the Toyota and Honda brands account for one-fifth of the cars on this list of America's 25 best-selling cars in 2013. The leading U.S. brand car was the sixth-ranked Ford Fusion, which led the Chevrolet Cruze by 47,056 units. 

Germany's Volkswagen brand landed its Jetta in twelfth spot and the Passat in 22nd. BMW's 3-Series, with help from the renamed 4-Series two-door, was America's 18th-best-selling car nameplate in 2013, thanks to a massive December push that saw it rise from 21st spot


Korean tandem Hyundai-Kia positioned its cars in the eighth, tenth, 15th, and 19th positions: Elantra, Sonata, Optima, Soul. Nissan's Altima, Sentra, and Versa all cracked the top 25; the Altima was America's fourth-ranked car for the second straight year. 

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling cars can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of America's best-selling trucks, will soon issue the list of America's best-selling SUVs in 2013, and has also posted December-specific editions.
