No competitor came within 3900 sales of catching the Camry. Even the Nissan Altima, periodically America’s top-selling car on a monthly basis, generated a 27% year-over-year improvement but fell 4593 sales short of the Camry’s total.
The Toyota Corolla, meanwhile, slipped 2% to 30,249 units. Although the Corolla is America’s second-best-selling car through the first seven months of 2015, it fell to fifth place in July’s rankings.
11 of America’s 20 best-selling passenger cars reported year-over-year declines in July. The worst belonged to the 20th-ranked Nissan Versa, which plunged 36% for a 5681-unit loss. The Toyota Prius was down 17%. Volkswagen Jetta sales fell 12%, but that was caused by the SportWagen’s departure to the Golf nameplate. Jetta sedan sales were actually up 4% last month.
