Total Corolla sales jumped 12% to 28,262 units, a scant 73 sales more than the number-two car managed. That second-ranked car? Also a Toyota, a perennial favourite, the Toyota Camry. Camry volume took a 9% tumble, year-over-year.

The Toyota Prius slotted in at the sixteenth position. Hondas claimed the third and fourth slots. There were two GM products on the list of America’s 20 best-selling cars in November 2016, two Fords, three Nissans, two Hyundais, three Kias, and lone entries from Dodge, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz. 

With one month remaining, the Toyota Camry is poised to finish 2016 as the best-selling car in America for a 15th consecutive year.
