7. Honda Civic
2018 Sales: 230,230
Vs. 2017: -7.5 %
The all-new Civic had its ups and downs in 2017, and ultimately this small Honda was unable to retain the best-selling-car crown. Even Civic is feeling the pressure of increasing SUV sales, with August sales down 24 percent and year-to-date sales through August down 7.5 percent. Civic remains the best-selling passenger car in the Honda lineup. The tenth generation of this popular car debuted early last year featuring fresh styling, improved aerodynamics, new vehicle architecture, a more spacious interior and two new engines. Fuel economy also is impressive — rated as high as 42 mpg with a new turbocharged powerplant. Civic can be more than basic transportation thanks to new high-performance variants: the Civic Type R and Civic Si.
