With all the new car models out on the market, it will be interesting to see how many sales most of them generate throughout the remainder of this year. But for now, the Cars.com blog, Kicking Tires, recently published the top 10 list of best-selling vehicles for January—and there are no big surprises here.
According to the report, Subaru and Kia sales increased at record pace, while Lincoln and Lexus experienced 21 percent and 30.6 percent drops, respectively. Meanwhile, G.M.’s Buick began to re-surge, as increasing numbers of its new Regal began flying off dealer lots and the LaCrosse and Lucerne continued steadily in popularity.
Again, not surprisingly, Ford F-Series trucks took the number one best-selling slot, as they have several years in a row. The Chevy Silverado came in second, with positions three through 10 taken by the Toyota Corolla and Camry, Nissan’s Altima, Honda’s CR-V, the Chevy Impala, Honda’s Accord and Civic, and the Ford Fusion, respectively.
On another note, the list of best-sellers reveals at least one truism: Americans believe in Toyota products. From the looks of things, the P.R. safety fiasco the company experienced last year has come to an end, and the manufacturer has survived the damage done. In this day and age, that’s truly something to be grateful for.
