Top 20 Best Selling Cars in America

July 7, 2011

Chevrolet was named the best-selling car in America, for the second month in a row.

Replacing the Chevy Malibu in the top spot was the Chevrolet Cruze, now the most popular car in the country.

Two other Chevrolets made June's list of the top 20 best-selling cars in America: the Impala and the Camaro.

The reason for Chevy's high marks is that Toyota Camry sales fell 24.8% while Honda Accord dropped 36.1%, and Corolla/Matrix sales fell 13.7% - all a result of the Japanese earthquake/tsunami.

Korean cars staked a claim in the Top 20 with four models.

Germany was represented by BMW 3-Series and Volkswagen Jetta.

The rest are split between American and Japanese brands.

Here is a full list of the most popular cars in America right now:

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
