The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord were once bitter rivals for the title of “America’s Best-Selling Car”. The Camry is still top dog year-to-date, but the number two spot has changed. Meanwhile, Honda’s two core products rank third and fourth.
The Toyota Camry has a comfortable lead on the Nissan Altima at the half-way point in 2012. The Camry has outsold the Altima by 46,507 units so far, but the Altima’s real challenge could come from the Honda Civic. The Altima has a mere 425 unit lead on the third place Civic, which seems to be finally pulling away from the Corolla/Matrix. The compact Toyotas were also best (barely) by the Honda Accord, which is likely getting the royal treatment from the factory and dealers as a new model changeover compels them to get rid of the “old” model.
