Sales of both Toyotas dropped nearly 8%. Their nearest competitor, the second-ranked Honda Civic, reported a 12% year-over-year loss. 

Year-to-date, the Camry now leads its closest rivals – Civic and Corolla – by 2022 and 2348 units, respectively. An all-new Camry is due to arrive at dealers in the coming weeks, and it may be just what the doctor ordered to spur passenger car demand.
