July 2014 U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 153 Best-Selling Cars In America – Every Car Ranked


2014 Lexus IS250

Through the first seven months of 2014 the Toyota Camry has outsold the second-best-selling Honda Accord by 42,077 units in the United States. Camry sales have risen 8%; Accord sales have increased a little less than 1%. 

All seven of America’s seven-best-selling passenger car nameplates have produced greater sales over the last seven months than they did during the same phase in 2013. In July, despite more impressive growth in the car market, three of those seven cars – Cruze, Civic, Altima – recorded year-over-year declines.

Year-to-date, the greatest year-over-year improvements among passenger cars belongs to the Audi A3. But the A3 wasn’t properly and readily available at this stage last year, so while the A3-to-A3 comparison is a good one for Audi sales personnel who now have an entry-level car to sell, it’s not terribly valid when comparing cars with cars. 

Among cars which were actively marketed at this time last year, the Chevrolet Corvette, fuelled by a surge of interest in the seventh-generation sports car, has more than tripled its January-July 2013 sales volume in 2014. That’s a gain of 14,460 units for the Corvette.

Sales of the plug-in version of Toyota’s Prius have more than doubled. Lexus IS volume has jumped 95%. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is up 94%. Mazda 2 sales have risen 57% and the Nissan Sentra, the highest-volume product in this conversation, are up 43%. 

Last month we decided to adjust the way a number of vehicles are displayed here, and this will have an impact on the way you compare rankings when looking back at previous months. The Infiniti G sedan has been separated from what was the G coupe and convertible but is now the Q60. In other words, there are extra lines in the full rankings.

More than those changes, this month the Mercedes-Benz B-Class EV and Porsche 918 Spyder were added as new vehicles. (Porsche retroactively reported a 918 Spyder sale for June, as well.)

There were other important improvements introduced in last October’s ranking of vehicle 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 included vehicles like the Mitsubishi Eclipse and Chevrolet HHR, nameplates which collected sales in the first half of 2013 but not this year. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format.

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, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model’s total, not in addition to the model’s total.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 11.2% to 20,675 in July; down 11% to 127,776 YTD.
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. Hyundai does the same with the Genesis and Genesis Coupe.
† Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: up 31.2% to 4483 in July; up 27.1% to 34,950 in July. Total G Sedan and Q50 sales: up 47.3% to 3801 in July; up 42.4% to 30,248 YTD.
‡ 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 July 2014 were 102, 175, 59, 14, and 75 respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but Automotive News now issues estimates for the brand, and those estimates say Tesla sold 1800 cars in July, 15,030 YTD.  HybridCars.com, however, typically estimates much lower Model S sales. Mercedes-Benz’s sales report for July 2014 shows no B-Class sales in July 2013, but ANDC shows a pair were sold.
