In 2014, the Camry outsold the next-best-selling Honda Accord by 40,232 units. In 2015, however, the next-best-selling car is another Toyota, the Corolla. But the Camry’s lead over the second-ranked car exploded to 66,023 units, a massive victory for the midsize Camry, sales of which increased by a modest 749 units in a flat U.S. car market.
Among the 25 top-selling cars in America in 2015, 10 posted fewer sales than they did in 2014. Few posted impressive gains. The 13th-ranked Chrysler 200’s 52% year-over-year increase came about as the total FCA midsize car sales increase measured a far more modest 6%. The Subaru Impreza’s 20% gain is an amalgam of the actual Impreza’s 15% jump to 66,785 units – not unimpressive – and the WRX/STI’s 32% leap to 33,734 units. Hyundai’s 8% Elantra increase occurred as Hyundai cleared out remaining editions of the current Elantra at hugely affordable prices in advance of the new Elantra’s launch.
There was, however, a 48% increase in Ford Mustang sales. The Mustang, America’s 19th-best-selling car in 2015, recorded its best sales year since 2007.
