This past year was a strong one for the auto industry. A number of manufacturers posted excellent sales numbers, and great strides were made with regard to safety features and technological advancements. Despite all of the change occurring, one model continued to hold on to the title of the most popular vehicle in the U.S.
According to Toyota Motor Sales, the Toyota Camry was the best-selling car in the country in 2013. It sold 408,484 vehicles through the 12 months of the year, which is a slight increase from the year before. It was challenged by the Honda Accord, which saw a sales increase of more than 10 percent but still lagged behind the Camry.
"The auto industry was a consistent bright spot in the economic recovery throughout 2013," said Bill Fay, vice president of a Toyota division. "We expect the economy will continue to gain strength in 2014, with car sales rising to pre-recession levels."
The Camry has remained popular for so long thanks to the car's reputation for dependability, as well as its excellent fuel economy and effortless vehicle maintenance. With these excellent features, it should continue to be one of the most sought-after automobiles on the market in the future.
