February 2017 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 157 Best-Selling Cars In America – Every Car Ranked


2017 Ford GT blue

U.S. car sales plunged 12% in February 2017 as the market narrowly contracted. Through the first two months of 2017, overall auto sales are down by roughly 38,000 units. Yet outside of the passenger car market, auto sales have actually increased 6% so far this year.

But all five of America’s most popular cars have sold less often in 2017’s first two months than in the first two months of 2016. Far less often, in fact. The best-selling Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Honda Accord combined to lose 30,000 sales already this year.

Perhaps some of that decline will be extinguished by the arrival of a new Toyota Camry in the coming months. Or perhaps the 2018 Camry will soon be faced with the same situation now facing the Honda Civic. Still fresh off a redesign, the Civic is blessed with an additional bodystyle – the hatchback launched late last year – yet Civic sales are down 8% so far this year.

The Hyundai Ioniq, Kia Niro, and Ford GT are the newest vehicles added to America’s passenger car fleet. Argue over the Kia Niro’s “crossover” status if you must, but it’s a front-wheel-drive wagon in our books.

An increasingly popular front-wheel-drive wagon, too. In February, the Niro outsold the Chevrolet Volt, Toyota Prius Prime, Ford C-Max, Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Bolt, and Toyota Prius V. In fact, the Niro outsold the Leaf and Bolt electric hatches combined

Ford, meanwhile, reported the first three sales of its Canadian-built GT supercar. Don’t expect the new, high-priced GT to sell in the kinds of numbers achieved by the more “affordable” previous-generation GT. If you wanted a copy of this new car, you needed to apply

Ford sold 3596 copies of the GT in the United States between 2004 and 2007. The new car’s production run is capped at 500 units.

Reminder: these are 2017 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by February volume by clicking the February 2017 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.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
