Toyota Camry sales fell 2% in the United States in February 2016, a modest decrease of 537 units compared with February 2015. But the Camry’s volume was more than strong enough to fend off its closest rivals – and its closest siblings – in order for the Camry to once again end a month as America’s best-selling car.
February 2016 marked the Camry’s sixth consecutive month as America’s best-selling car. 2015 was the Camry’s 14th consecutive year of passenger car sales leadership.
Many of the Camry’s rivals did, however, accelerate at a healthy rate in February. The Honda Accord, which was the last car to outsell the Camry, jumped 19%. Ford Fusion sales rose 12%. The Chevrolet Malibu and Hyundai Sonata reported significant gains: 53% and 25%, respectively.
Numerous compacts posted big increases, as well. The Toyota Corolla was up 5%, Honda Civic volume shot up 32%, and the Nissan Sentra, Ford Focus, and Kia Forte all produced gains of at least 30%.
