Camry sales nevertheless dropped 15%, not a tremendous surprise given market trends and the fact that January hosted the debut of the next Camry at the North American International Auto Show.
But the Camry’s rate of decline wasn’t exceptional among America’s most popular cars. 16 of the 20 best-selling cars in America in February 2017 sold less often this February than last.
In fact, each of the seven most popular cars declined. The Chevrolet Malibu plunged 42%. The Ford Fusion and Focus and Kia’s Soul all reported drops of worse than 30%.
Standing out as exceptions were the Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze, Kia Forte, and new Subaru Impreza.
