Sales slowed for the top U.S. automakers last month, as six of the 10 best-selling models went to Japanese automakers Toyota and Honda. Left Lane News points out that the only domestic models to make it into the top 10 were the Chevrolet Malibu and the Ford Fusion.
Kicking Tires blames the slower turnout on a narrower incentive gap, as rising prices brought up transaction prices for new cars, as well as the fact that since April spanned five weekends this year, buyers had three fewer days to shop for cars than the same month last year.
Here were the top 10 best sellers for April:
1. Ford F-Series (47,453 units)
2. Toyota Camry (36,820 units)
3. Honda Accord (35,385 units)
4. Chevrolet Silverado (30,749 units)
5. Toyota Prius (25,168 units - includes Prius c and Prius v)
6. Toyota Corolla (24,804 units - includes Matrix)
7. Honda Civic (24,423 units)
8. Honda CR-V (23,627 units)
9. Chevrolet Malibu (21,906 units)
10. Ford Fusion (21,610 units)
Notably, in other news from April's U.S. sales reports, the Volkswagen Jetta was the top-selling European car at 16,659 units, and the Chevrolet Volt sold significantly more (1,462) than the Nissan Leaf (370).
Rounding out the top 15 best-selling cars for the month were the Ram pickup (21, 126), the Hyundai Sonata (20,521), the Ford Focus (19,425), the Chevrolet Equinox (18,282), and the Chevrolet Cruze (18,205).
