Despite a 59% increase in Honda Civic sales and a near-39K-unit Accord sales month, the Toyota Camry’s margin of victory in claiming the title of America’s best-selling car in August was still more than 5000 sales.
Combined, the Kia Optima And Hyundai
Sonata Sold 32,116 Copies In August
America’s nine favourites all attracted more than 20,000 buyers, and all members of the top 20 found at least 10,000 buyers. The Chevrolet Sonic’s best month ever resulted in 11,354 sales.
A 67% uptick in BMW 3-Series volume saw sales of the best-selling premium car rise to 10,357 units. No car in the top 20 posted a bigger gain than the 3er.
In total, eight of America’s 20 most popular cars compete in the conventional midsize sector. The Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Nissan Sentra, and Mazda 3 represented compacts; the aforementioned Sonic the subcompacts.
Chevrolet’s Impala was the big car of the group, although sales of the well-regarded Impala plunged 22%, the harshest fall of the four top 20 cars which posted August declines.
