With or without its new stablemate, the Toyota Corolla was the best-selling car in America in September 2016.
In addition to the 31,167 Corolla sedans sold by Toyota USA in September, the company also began to record sales of the Scion iM – the former Scion iM – as the Toyota Corolla iM. Together, the Corolla and its hatchback variant outsold the second-ranked car in September by 1565 units.
That second-ranked car? America’s perennial favourite, the Toyota Camry.
Camry sales slid 11% in September, a decline of 3780 sales. In all, 11 of the 20 most popular cars in America reported fewer sales in September 2016 than in September 2015. The Nissan Versa’s 36% drop, a 6500-unit year-over-year decline, was worst among the most popular cars in the United States.
Now comes time for the Honda Civic, which posted a modest decline in September, to make hay with a hatchback. American Honda says that the Civic Hatchback, which is arriving now, won’t eat into sales of the existing Civic sedan and coupe.
