January 2014 U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 144 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2013 Nissan Altima
Rare Among Top Sellers, Nissan Altima Sales
Rose 5% In The U.S. In January 2014
14 of America's 20 best-selling passenger car nameplates sold fewer copies in January 2014 than in January 2013. Between those 14 cars alone - excluding dozens of other declining cars - contributed 35,265 fewer sales to the auto industry's tally in January 2014 than they did a year ago, a 15% loss.

Overall new car sales fell 9%, a loss of more than 45,000 sales in a new vehicle market which attracted 32,000 fewer buyers.

Despite its 27% drop, the Toyota Camry continued to be America's best-selling car. In fact, January represented a return to the top for the Camry, which had fallen to number two in December. Three of America's 20 best-selling cars in January 2014 were Toyotas; four in the top 34; five in the top 53.


2014 Chevrolet Cruze black
January 2014 Was The Best January
(Of Four) In The Chevrolet Cruze's History
Five of America's 40 best-selling cars last month were Fords. Five of the top 32 were Chevrolets. Dodge and Chrysler combined to land five in the top 44. 

Honda had two in the top six; three in the top 45. Four of the leading 37 were Nissans, including three in the top 17. Hyundai and Kia positioned six cars among the 35 most popular. 

The top premium car in January was the BMW 3-Series (and its 4-Series two-door partner). Joining the BMW were six other premium brand passenger cars in the top 50.

One car that wasn't on sale in a month ago began its ascent up the charts in January: the Volvo V60. Whether it can climb up the best seller chart in any significant measure remains to be seen. The V60 ranked 116th among cars in January 2014, ahead of the Porsche Boxster but behind the Hyundai Equus.

2014 Mazda 6 red
Mazda 6 Sales Have Increased In The United
States In Each Of The Last Nine Months
There were important improvements introduced in October's ranking of car sales. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increase from last year. As a result, we've also included vehicles like the Cadillac DTS and Chevrolet HHR, nameplates which collected sales last January but not this year. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you're on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

You can sort cars by January volume by clicking the January column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header.


As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.

* Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
¹ Chrysler markets the Viper not as a Dodge but as an SRT, but we show it here as a Dodge so you can see the vehicles with like-minded products when you sort vehicles alphabetically using the Car column header.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 22.6% to 12,205.
³ BMW has chosen to include sales of the 4-Series within figures for the 3-Series, presumably for year-over-year consistency's sake, while also combining the 1-Series and 2-Series.
† Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: up 51.5% to 4264. G sedan and Q50 sales up 76.3% to 3851.
‡ Acura has chosen to combine sales figures for the RLX and its predecessor, the RL.
Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in January were 70, 164,47, 23, and 86, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data. With hard and fast sales data, we would likely discover that the Tesla Model S is one of America's 150 best-selling vehicles.
