After a month-long hiatus in which the Honda Accord took over, the Toyota Camry was once again America’s best-selling car in April 2011. Accord sales slipped 4.6% compared to April 2010; Camry sales were up 9.1% year-over-year.
Perhaps the most impressive showing in April came from the Chevrolet Cruze. With 37 leftover Cobalt sales tagging along, the Cruze posted an 83.9% jump over the Cobalt’s April 2010 sales levels. The Malibu wasn’t far behind for Chevrolet and the Impala finished inside the top ten, as well. Chevy’s Camaro muscle car performed well as sales rose 11.4% to climb over the 10K barrier. Meanwhile, Ford didn’t appear until the ninth spot with the Fusion but, as shown already on GoodCarBadCar.net, Ford was the best-selling brand in America in April.
It’s likely that troubling times are ahead for Japanese automakers in May, but as of this moment, sales are really quite strong. Just missing from this list is the Japanese-built Honda Fit. With 8116 sales, the Fit had a best ever month, up 72.7% from April 2010.
However, the Fit isn’t in the Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America list. These cars are.
