18. Chevrolet Cruze
YTD Sales: 105,188
Vs. 2016: 21.3 %
Counter to the waning popularity of the passenger car, the stylish Chevrolet Cruze had experienced strong growth during the first months of 2017. Unfortunately, in June the small Chevy’s sales were down 31 percent compared to a year earlier. Redesigned for the 2016 model year and now featuring a hatchback version, Cruze has a standard 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, with start-stop technology improving efficiency in stop-and-go driving.
