Some of the characteristics of best-selling automobiles include outstanding maneuverability, superb handling, top notch performance, maximum safety and extra features that enhance luxury and comfort. These characteristics are important because they help assure buyers that they have purchased a vehicle that performs well. Price, top speed, size, and country of origin are actually less of a concern for many car buyers, according to Jim Mateja of Chicago Tribune.
A vehicle that doesn't have the aforementioned characteristics tends to receive bad reviews, which can lead to poor sales figures. That said, each person will have a different idea of what makes a vehicle ideal to own.
To qualify as a best-seller, a vehicle must have sold thousands of units at a given time. The top five best-selling vehicles in the United States as of July 2015 are the Ford F-Series (66,288), Chevrolet Silverado (56,380), Toyota Camry (38,435), Ram pickup (36,019), and Honda Accord (34,496), as reported by Good Car Bad Car.
The Ford F-Series pickup is labeled the best-selling vehicle in North America for over 30 years, with sales upwards of 35 million. However, it is not the best-selling vehicle in the world. This accolade goes to the Toyota Corolla, which has sold over 40 million units worldwide, as stated by MSN.
