Toyota Corolla - 37.5 million
Having originally hit the market in 1966, the Toyota Corolla seems to be the perfect combination of reliable, long- lasting and budget friendly. These cars easily out-sell all other cars on this list and you can tell by just how many of them you see on the road. The Corolla is also a great choice economically when it comes to saving money on gas.
Ford F-Series - 35 million
The Ford F series was the number one selling automobile for 23 years and the best-selling truck for 31 years. Known for its rugged dependability and ability to haul extreme loads and tow large trailers, these trucks have been selling fast off the lots since 1948. Like the Corolla, the Ford F-series truck has a high resale value so you see a ton out on the road.
Volkswagen Golf - 27.5 million
The Volkswagen Golf, sometimes called the Rabbit, is considered the successor to the Beetle. The Golf has won numerous awards and won the World Car of the Year in 2009. With its turbo-charged engine and sporty exterior, the Golf has also been popular in the arenas of rally and performance motoring.
Volkswagen Beetle - 23.5 million
Though much of the funding for the original Beetle came from Hitler’s Third Reich, this car somehow became representative of the hippie movement during the 60’s and 70’s. First hitting the scene in 1938, the original model Volkswagen Beetle shockingly remained in production until 2003. Though the newer model Beetle is included in the group, they are vastly different from the first model. Today, the Volkswagen Beetle is still a strongly iconic vehicle.
Ford Escort - 20 million
The Ford Escort is the number one selling car of all time in the United Kingdom. Though the American version is simply an affordable sedan in the U.S., the European version has been one of the most sought-after vehicles for decades. Much of this is due to its popularity in rallycross. The newest version of the Escort was launched in China and is currently being sold on the Asian and Middle eastern market.
Honda Civic - 18.5 million
Famous for being an incredibly reliable and long lasting commuter sedan, the Civic was Honda’s saving grace. Prior to the launch of the Civic in 1972, Honda nearly pulled out of the car industry altogether. But thanks to a very practical version that has become popular throughout the world, and its sportier Type R version known in the world of street racing, the Civic will stay on the scene for many years to come.
Honda Accord - 17.5 million
Much like the Civic, the Honda Accord has become one of the best selling cars of all time due to its well-earned reputation for reliability, fuel economy, and value. Originally introduced in 1976, the Accord was flying off the lots by the late 1980’s and is still going strong today. The Honda Accord is considered one of the safest family cars available on the market.
Ford Model-T - 16.5 million
The first vehicle that was financially affordable for many people and families, the Ford Model T marked the beginning of the auto industry in the United States. The fact that the car was within reach to an average person is why this classic still makes the list as one of the best selling cars of all time. The Ford Model T was in production between 1908 to 1927.
Volkswagen Passat - 14.1 million
The Volkswagen Passat has gone through numerous facelifts and name changes, at times being sold under the model names Dasher, Santana, and Quantum. The Passat is another popular family friendly, affordable sedan. Production of the car began in 1973 and it's still going strong today.
Chevrolet Impala - Over 14 million
In 1965 alone, Chevy sold over 1 million Impalas in a single year. Marketed as a near luxury vehicle, this car makes the number 10 spot on the list by still being a relatively affordable sedan. The Impala remains popular today as a large, comfortable vehicle with an impressive interior, stylish exterior and overall smart design.
