9. Hyundai Elantra
YTD Sales: 143,067
Vs. 2016: -8.90%
Hyundai’s compact Elantra received a complete redesign for the 2017 model year with updated styling as well as many new features. The revised look helped Elantra surpass Sonata as the brand’s best-selling model, and keeps it surprisingly far ahead of the Korean automaker’s SUV offerings. Elantra’s sleek look is anchored by a signature hexagonal grille that closely ties it to the rest of the Hyundai lineup, and includes high-end amenities such as HID headlights with Dynamic Bending lights, as well as vertical LED daytime running lights — unusual in this vehicle class. Sales are down for the year so far, with a drop of 25 percent in September compared to 2016.
