Best Selling Car Model Every Year Since 1978

As you can see from this infographic, the Toyota Camry has dominated the most popular cars list since 1997. Why is the Toyota Camry a good car? It is considered to be one of the most reliable cars of all time. Toyota Camry reliability is backed by J.D. Power’s expert review, which states: “Trading on its long-standing reputation for reliability, resale value, efficiency, and safety, the 2021 Camry is what midsize car shoppers frequently think of when the time comes to get a new vehicle.” It also has a history of high owner satisfaction ratings. Nearly every year since 2000, it has received either a four or five out of five (with the exception of 2008, 2017, and 2018, when it received three out of five). Due to this track record of satisfaction, the Toyota Camry has exceptional resale value. If you are interested in purchasing a used Toyota Camry, keep in mind that the four years that it received an overall five out of five satisfaction rating were 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2005.

What Is the Best-Selling Car of All Time?

The best-selling car of all time in the world is the Toyota Corolla. It made its debut in 1966, and since then, more than 49 million Toyota Corollas have been sold worldwide. It is by far Toyota’s most successful vehicle — one in every five Toyotas sold is a Corolla. Why is the Toyota Corolla so popular? The Toyota Corolla is known for its reliability, safety, gas mileage, longevity, and reasonable price. It is one of the most widely available cars globally, with factories worldwide producing high volumes to keep up with the steady demand. In addition, the Toyota Corolla continues to be upgraded to make it as safe and user-friendly as possible. With 50 years of trusted Toyota innovation under its belt, it is no wonder that the Corolla dominates the market. And another Toyota car is the best-selling car in the United States today: the Camry.
