August 2014 U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 155 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2014 Honda Accord sedan
With 51,075 U.S. sales in August 2014, the Honda Accord closed the year-to-date sales gap between between the top two best-selling cars in America from 42,077 units at the end of July to 35,045 units heading into September.

Added to this list of passenger car rankings in August were new cars from Acura and BMW, the TLX and i8. Naturally, they didn't alter the order at the top of the heap. Compared with the previous month's edition of this list, the Camry, Accord, Corolla, Altima, Civic, Fusion, Cruze, Focus, Elantra, Sonata, Malibu, Sentra, and Optima all held on to their positions in the top 13. 

The Volkswagen Jetta and Kia Soul flipped positions and the Chevrolet Impala fell two spots to 18th as the Toyota Prius (Plug-In included) and Nissan Versa moved up. The 20th-ranked BMW 3-Series continues to be America's best-selling premium brand car - 4-Series sales are still included. The next-best-selling premium brand vehicle is the 33rd-ranked Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

And the Mazda MX-5 Miata? Mazda introduced the fourth-gen MX-5 at a number of global events on Wednesday, the day we first saw August and year-to-date sales results. MX-5 sales are down 22% to 3441 units in 2014; it's America's 113th-best-selling car.

Two months ago 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.

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 Lexus HS and Cadillac STS, nameplates which collected sales in the first eight months of 2013 but not this year. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format.

Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by August volume by clicking the August 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles 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, 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 11.5% to 151,213 YTD, down 14.3% to 23,437 in August.
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: down 26.2% to 4803 in August, up 16.9% to 39,753 YTD. Total G Sedan and Q50 sales: down 23.0% to 4201 in August, up 29.0% to 34,449 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 August 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, 16,830 YTD.  HybridCars.com, however, typically estimates much lower Model S sales, 1200 in August and 10,600 YTD.
