2009 Best Selling Passenger Cars In the United States (All Models Ranked)
After a disastrous end to 2008, the U.S. auto industry slid 21% in 2009. New car sales were down from more than 7 million (53.2% of the overall market) to 5.7 million in 2009 (54.6% of the overall market).
Two Toyotas led the way for the first time since 2006. There were three Toyotas in the top ten for the third consecutive year. The top-selling Camry fell below 400,000 annual sales for the first time since 2001, itself a year of great tumult. Total Corolla/Matrix volume slid below 300,000 units for the first time since 2002. This was nothing abnormal.
