The Toyota Camry reasserted its position as America’s top-selling car in March 2017, not only claiming the crown for a second consecutive month but also taking back the year-to-date lead from the Honda Civic.
Camry sales are predictably down 13% so far this year – an all-new 2018 model is due soon – in a market that’s decisively anti-car. The midsize Camry is now 1805 sales ahead of the Civic, a newer compact that’s also fading.
In fact, each of America’s five top-selling cars posted noteworthy year-over-year U.S. sales declines in March 2017 and through the first quarter of 2017. And among the 20 most popular cars in America in March, sixteen reported year-over-year declines.
The worst of the nosedives were reported by the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, and Chevrolet Malibu, mid-tier midsize sedans all. Collectively, those three nameplates lost 32,073 sales.
