September 2016 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 162 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2017 Toyota Corolla purple
U.S. sales of America's best-selling car, the Toyota Camry, fell 8.8% during the first three-quarters of 2016, a year-over-year drop of nearly 29,000 sales.

U.S. sales of passenger cars overall likewise fell 8.8%, a decline of more than 500,000 sales compared with the first nine months of 2015.

But the Camry, America's best-selling car in each of the last 14 years and in four consecutive months, was not America's best-selling car in September 2016.

That title belonged to another Toyota. Corolla sales jumped 15% to 32,272 units, including the now-Toyota-badged Scion iM. 



But the Toyota parent brand didn't need to take ownership of the iM for the Corolla to earn top spot in September. And it wouldn't be so crazy if it did. Many Corolla competitors, including the Honda Civic as of this month, are available in both sedan and hatchback bodystyles. In fact, the Civic adds a coupe to the mix. 

The Scion Toyota Corolla iM is very much a Corolla hatchback. Exterior styling is different, so is the rear suspension.

But the Corolla family just got a little bit bigger. And the Corolla's sales figures grew, as well.

There were a bundle of new luxury sedans added to America's passenger car fleet in September 2016. The Lincoln Continental, Genesis G90, and Alfa Romeo Giulia contributed  an additional 892 sales to the mix. We've also changed the way we report Volvo S60, S60 Cross Country, V60, and V60 Cross Country sales.

° Overall market figure is a combination of all reported sales figures and HybridCars.com  estimate for Tesla.
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 2016's first nine months were 774 and 126 units, respectively. 
Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but we source estimates from HybridCars.com and The Wall Street Journal.

HybridCars.com Model S sales estimate: +95.2% to 4100 in September; +20.9% to 21,400 YTD.
WSJ Model S estimate: +4.5% to 2300 in September; +28.4% to 19,450 YTD.
