October 2015 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 159 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible GT 5.0
U.S. car buyers purchased and leased nearly 624,000 new cars in October 2015, a 4% year-over-year increase in conjunction with an industry-wide improvement of 14%.

Though U.S. car sales remain slightly south of flat through the first ten months of 2015, there has been a rebound coinciding with a late-in-the-year surge for the market as a whole. The Toyota Camry, America's most popular car, posted a 12% uptick over the course of September and October, a momentous leap forward equal to 7597 extra sales for the Toyota brand.

In October, the Camry was joined by the Honda Accord, Toyota's own Corolla, the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Malibu, and Ford Fusion – America's six best-selling cars last month – in posting improved October sales. Only two of the 20 top-selling cars in America posted fewer sales in October 2015 than they did one year earlier.


Cars remain a significantly smaller force in the auto industry of 2015 than they were one year ago. Only 44% of the new vehicles sold in America so far this year have been cars, down from 47% one year ago.

The cause of the change isn't difficult to locate. SUVs and crossovers, led by the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4, have seen their share of the market rise from 32% in the first ten months of 2014 to 35% in 2015, a three-percentage-point flip over the course of just one year.

This doesn't mean all cars have suffered significant losses in 2015. Indeed, the losses registered by many popular cars, from the Camry and Civic to the Fusion and Kia Soul, have been very slight. Moreover, many nameplates have taken advantage of their newness to report big increases: Golf, 200, A3, MX-5, Mustang, 2-Series, have all climbed by more than 60%.

* 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: up 12.5% to 15,203 in October; down 12.2% to 157,143 YTD. 
³ BMW has traditionally 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. Now, since July, we have a 3-Series/4-Series breakdown. (Hyundai does the same with the Genesis and Genesis Coupe.)
Total 3-Series/4-Series sales: up 5.0% to 14,307 in October; up 8.8% to 117,889 YTD. 
° Total is a combination of all reported sales figures shown in the table only.

Bentley sold 1917 cars in the first ten months of 2015, 121 in October.
Ferrari sold 1903 cars in the first ten months of 2015, 194 in October.
Maserati sold 9543 cars in the first ten months of 2015; 1166 in October.
Lamborghini sold 866 cars in the first ten months of 2015; 65 in October.
Rolls-Royce sold 701 cars in the first ten months of 2015; 65 in October. 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 Aston Martin and Lotus in the first ten months of 2015 were 850 and 126, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but we source estimates from HybridCars.com.
