The 10 Top Selling Cars in the World


Washington DC May 12, 2014; The AIADA newsletter reported that at the end of the first quarter of 2014, the Toyota Corolla was the best-selling car in the world. That is not exactly earth-shattering news because the Corolla has been the best-selling car for years. Toyota sold 276,766 Corollas in the first quarter, down 1.5 percent from the 280,969 the company sold in the same period a year ago.

It is also no shocker that the Focus from Ford Motor Co. held its spot at number two, with total first-quarter sales of 256,284, also down from last year’s total of 274,859.

That is a sharper drop, totaling 6.8 percent. According to 24/7 Wall St., the big surprise is that the Volkswagen Golf jumped from seventh place a year ago to third this year, with sales of 223,249 units, up 27.9 percent over a year ago.

The fourth ranked best-seller was China’s Wuling Hongguang minivan, with sales of 210,109, a whopping 52.7 percent higher than a year ago.

The Hyundai Elantra rounded out the top five. Toyota’s Camry placed ninth, the Volkswagen Polo ranked eighth and two more Ford models finished sixth and seventh, the F-Series pickups and the Ford Fiesta, respectively.
