Top 20 Most Popular Cars in America Right Now
Car sales went through the roof last month, surprising most analysts. The uptick in sales is due to pent-up demand from consumers who need to replace their aging vehicles. Financing is also more readily available, even to those with not-so-stellar credit.
Toyota Camry topped the list of the most popular cars in America right now with 34,542 sold last month. The Nissan Altima was close behind with nearly 33,000 units sold.
Ford Focus sales shot up 115% compared to the same time last year, but half of those sales went to fleets such as rental car agencies (too many fleet sales usually lead to a drop in resale value).
Here is the list of the top 20 most popular cars in America right now. Pay attention to the ones that had a drop in sales, those are the ones that should have more wiggle room when it comes time to negotiate.
