Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America - January 2014

2014 Hyundai Elantra
The Elantra's 26% Jump Was Tops In A
Top 20 Filled With Declining Nameplates
Although sales fell 27%, America's perennial best-selling car, the Toyota Camry, was once again the best-selling car in America in January 2014. Its closest challenger was also a Toyota, the revamped Corolla, sales of which also declined in January.

The Honda Accord, America's second-best-selling car in 2013, slid all the way to sixth spot in January as volume fell 14%. But it was a close sixth - just 2728 sales back of top spot; fewer than 2000 sales off the podium; 113 sales out of the top five - and Honda's own Civic finished in the fourth position.

The Volkswagen Passat and Dodge Avenger, both of which cracked the top 20 a year ago, did not end January 2014 amongst the best sellers. The Subaru Outback and Kia Soul filled the void.


Toyota's Camry began 2013 with a nearly 8000-unit gap between it and the second-ranked Accord. 2014 is shaping up to be different, as the Camry leads the second-ranked Corolla by just 579 units and the second-ranked midsize car, Nissan's Altima, by only 817 sales.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers 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 in January and America's most popular cars.

  1. I'm thinking the column heading in the chart is supposed to say best selling car.

  2. The new Fusion is starting the year up one position at #3. And less than 3k units behind the Camry, unlike Jan 2013 when Fusion was over 9k behind Camry.
