Car and driver

Tracking auto sales in 2022 requires careful management of expectations. As supply chain issues continue to affect dealer inventory, it’s difficult for those in the market to find new vehicles to buy, let alone at a reasonable price. So it’s no surprise that many automakers are reporting a drop in sales compared to last year. However, some models manage to break through the chaos. Here is our list of the top 25 selling cars, SUVs and trucks during the first quarter of the year. We will update this list quarterly as more sales figures are released.

22. Hyundai Tucson (39,655 units sold)

It’s no surprise that the Tucson is Hyundai’s representative on this bestseller list. Not only has it been redesigned for 2022, but it also competes in the popular compact crossover segment, and sales are up 20% compared to the same period last year.

21. Ford Escape (39,962 units sold)

19. Honda Accord (42,039 units sold)

The Accord is one of our perennial favourites, although sales are down 10% from last year. It’s no longer in the hunt with the Toyota Camry for the nation’s best-selling non-SUV, but we’d still pick it over the popular Toyota.

18. Honda HR-V (42,168 units sold)

15. Jeep Wrangler (45,551 units sold)

The Wrangler is to Jeep what the 501 is to Levi’s, but it’s not the brand’s best-selling model. The Grand Cherokee has far outpaced this iconoclastic 4×4 lately, and one can’t help but wonder how much the Ford Bronco’s 23,573 units sold in the first quarter affected the Wrangler’s 8% drop from Last year.

14. Toyota Corolla (47,501 units sold)

The Toyota Corolla is synonymous with fuel efficiency, reliability and affordability, but its popularity is waning. Sales fell 35% compared to last year.
