Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America – June 2016


2016 Nissan Sentra red

For the fourth time this year and the ninth time in the last year, the Toyota Camry was America’s best-selling car in June.

Despite a 13% year-over-year decrease valued at a loss of more than 4800 sales and a 11% increase from the second-ranked Honda Civic worth nearly 3100 sales, the Camry outlasted the Civic with a 751-unit margin of victory.

Though Camry sales plunged, five of America’s six best-selling cars posted year-over-year improvements. Indeed, among the top 20 best-selling cars, year-over-year increases weren’t terrible rare, a healthy sign given the passenger car market’s recent downturns. 

11 of the 20 most popular cars in America in June 2016 recorded year-over-year improvements. Through the first five months of 2016, only nine of the 20 top-selling cars in America were on the upswing.

June’s best improvements belonged to the Nissan Versa and Chevrolet Impala, both of which jumped by more than 40%. The Nissan Sentra and aforementioned Civic both posted double-digit percentage gains, as well.
