October 2016 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 164 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Doom and gloom?

If you're looking for poor results from the U.S. automotive industry, this is where you'll find them. Car sales are down 9.5% this year after falling nearly 16% in October 2016, a loss of 95,000 units.

At the top of the heap, America's aging best-selling car, the Toyota Camry, is down 9% this year and lost 15% of its October volume. America's leading luxury car, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, is down 13% this year. America's top-selling sports car, the Ford Mustang, is down 13%, as well.



There are bright spots in the car market, but they're undeniably overshadowed by a massive shift from cars to crossovers. In October, for every car sold in the United States, Americans registered 1.12 utility vehicles. After earning 41% of the auto industry's volume in October 2015, the passenger car sector's share of the market tumbled to 37% in October 2016.

In each of the last two months, the Toyota Corolla has been America's best-selling car. While the addition of the Scion iM to the Corolla family has helped, the Corolla sedan posted a 2% uptick on its own last month. 


Reminder: these are 2016 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by October volume by clicking the October 2016 column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header.

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 ten months were 860 and 140 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: down 42.9% to 1200 in October; up 42.7% to 22,056 YTD.
WSJ Model S estimate: up 4.5% to 2300 in October; up 25.4% to 21,750 YTD.
