The Elantra Is Now Available
In Three Different Body Shapes
Consider two main stories stemming from April 2013’s list of America’s 20 best-selling cars. First, the Honda Accord was the best-selling car in America in April 2013.
Second, the Hyundai Elantra outsold the Toyota Corolla, sales figures for which include the Toyota Matrix.
This marks the second consecutive month in which the Toyota Camry wasn’t America’s most popular car. It continues to lead in year-to-date terms, however, as the car which beat it in March dropped all the way to ninth spot. It’s not uncommon for Nissan to post some of the biggest March-to-April drops as the market shrinks.
Year-over-year sales across the industry shot up about 9%, but much of the increase was paid for by hugely popular trucks and big crossover gains. America’s two top-selling cars both reported losses, as did nine other cars in the top 20.
Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for all these vehicles, and every other vehicle, can be accessed by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. GCBC has already posted the list of America’s best-selling trucks. It’s actually a list of every truck that’s still on sale. The top-ranked SUVs and crossovers will be posted shortly.
