November 2016 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 163 Best-Selling Cars In America – Every Car Ranked


As U.S. auto sales rebounded in November 2016 after three consecutive months of decline, U.S. sales of passenger cars did not.

However, the rate of decline amongst passenger cars did slow in November. After falling 10% through the first 10 months of 2016, U.S. car volume slid just 4% in November 2016, a decline of roughly 20,000 units.

Heading into the final month of the year, the Toyota Camry leads the Toyota Corolla by 8205 sales, a gap which seemingly assures the Camry of a 15th consecutive year as America’s best-selling car. The Corolla, including the former Scion iM that’s now a Corolla iM, is nearly 12,000 sales ahead of the Honda Civic in the race to end 2016 as America’s best-selling compact car.
