10. Chevrolet Cruze
2017 Sales: 184,751
Vs. 2016: -2.2%
Sales of Chevrolet’s stylish Cruze compact dropped off at the end of 2017 after sales were up by 8 percent through the third quarter of the year but dropped off 22 percent in December to end the year with a slight decrease of 2.2 percent. Despite the sales drop, Cruze moved up from No. 11 at the end of 2016. Cruze was redesigned for the 2016 model year when Chevrolet added a hatchback version. Powered by a turbocharged 153-horsepower 1.4-liter direct-injection engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed automatic, Cruze achieves 40 mpg on the highway. Start-stop technology improves efficiency in stop-and-go driving. The Cruze sedan diesel delivers up to 52 mpg highway, and for 2018 the Cruze hatchback is also offered with the diesel engine.
