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


2017 Subaru Impreza sedan red

Sales of passenger cars declined 11% in the United States in March 2017, and sales of cars are now down 12% through the first-quarter of 2017, year-over-year.

Led by worse-than-average declines from the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Nissan Sentra, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Versa, Volkswagen Jetta, Kia Soul, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Charger – 12 of the 20 most popular cars in America – the U.S. passenger car sector has already lost more than 200,000 sales already this year.

At this rate of decline, America’s car market will lose around 825,000 sales over the course of 2017. 

Passenger car market share fell to 37% in 2017 Q1, down from 41% last year.

Bucking the anti-car trend are the BMW i3, Volkswagen Golf, Chevrolet Cruze (which tanked in early 2016), Mazda MX-5 Miata, Chevrolet Volt, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Subaru Impreza and the dying Chevrolet SS.
