10 Best-Selling Cars of 2016

Car buyers across the country had nearly 300 models to choose from in 2016, but the 10 bestsellers accounted for one out of every four new vehicles sold. Featuring three trucks, four sedans and three SUVs, these were the 10 best-selling cars in the U.S. in 2016.

Nissan's compact SUV combines grown-up styling inside and out with appealing touches like an Around View Monitor camera system that makes it easy to park like a pro, and an available (albeit very small) third-row seat.  

Honda's midsize sedan has been one of the best-selling cars in America for a long, long time. Famous reliability is among its key strengths, but the Accord is also popular because it's efficient, refined and boasts some of the strongest resale values in the industry.

After more than 20 years on the market, Toyota's practical and affordable small SUV remains a top seller, as its good fuel economy, smart use of space and upscale interior continue to attract buyers.

A regular entry on our annual 10 Best lists and our Compact SUV Best Buy for 2016, the Honda CR-V is the best-selling SUV in the country thanks to its unmatched mix of versatility, refinement and comfort. 

Thanks to a complete redesign that earned it our Overall Best Buy Award for 2016 (and again for 2017), the Honda Civic's sales numbers continue to rise. The Civic is currently available as a refined, reliable sedan, sportier coupe and 5-door hatchback, with high-performance Si and Type-R versions arriving soon.

The Toyota Corolla may be number five on this list, but it's the all-time best-selling car in the world. Quality and value are its hallmarks, but today's Corolla also offers modern style and tech.

The Toyota Camry continues its reign as the best-selling non-truck in the country, thanks in large part to its reliability, comfort and fantastic resale value.

The Ram 1500 has the most comfortable highway ride of any full-size truck, offers one of our favorite infotainment systems, and is the only half-ton truck with a diesel engine option.

Chevrolet's muscular, highly capable Silverado is the automaker's top seller and the second-best-selling vehicle in America.

Still fresh off a total redesign and rethinking, the aluminum-bodied Ford F-150 -- and its Super Duty siblings -- comprise the best-selling vehicle lineup in the country, as they have since the early 1980s. The F-150's redesign shook up the truck world, but hasn't changed the way people feel about Ford trucks.
