It’s no secret that Volkswagen sold the most vehicles between January and June of 2016, narrowly knocking Toyota out of the top spot. Fortunately the Japanese automaker still have some fight left in the form of the Toyota Corolla. Put simply, the Toyota Corolla is the world’s bestselling car for the 2016 model year.

Reports state that the 2016 Toyota Corolla sold more than 634,000 units over the first six months of the year. That number is actually down 1.2% from the previous sales, but the Corolla outpaced its closest competitors by a long shot.

The Volkswagen Golf found itself in second place with just over 500,000 units sold during the first six months of the year. That large gap is followed by the Ford F-Series pickup trucks with over 478,000 units sold.

Ford also nabbed fourth place with the Ford Focus with 367,479 units sold. Finally, the Hyundai Elantra closed out the top five with over 363,000 units sold.

The Corolla wasn’t the only model to make the Top 10, though. The Camry came in eighth with 339,611 units sold. The Toyota RAV4 moved up from 10th place in 2015 to 7th place in 2016 with 346,791 units sold compared to just under 313,000 units, nearly an 11% increase, in the previous sales period.

The Toyota Corolla remains popular among drivers thanks to its attractive design, peppy engine, upscale interior, and high fuel economy.

We here at Hurlbert Toyota couldn’t be happier to see the Toyota Corolla holding its best-selling title for the 2016 model year!

Obviously, the needs of one family can vary greatly from the needs of another. That is why there is never a one-size-fits-all perfect family car. To help families of all shapes and sizes find the best car for them, each year Kelley Blue Book creates a list of the 15 Best Family Cars.

For 2015, three Toyota models were named Best Family Cars, including the 2015 Toyota Camry, 2015 Highlander, and 2015 Sienna.

For smaller families with only one or two children, the Toyota Camry may be the ideal choice. With the 2015 model, families can enjoy the Camry’s bold new design along with a comfortable interior and improved driving performance. And, with its strong reputation for reliability and high resale value, families won’t be left stranded.

If three rows of seating is what your family needs, Kelley Blue Book recommends the Toyota Highlander. This 3-row crossover stands above the crowded competition with its ideal size and seating layout for up to eight passengers. With the pop-out conversation mirror, Mom and Dad can always keep an eye on what’s going on in the backseat.

Nothing can beat a minivan when it comes to the perfect family hauler and the Toyota Sienna is one of the best. The Sienna is still the only minivan on the market to offer all-wheel drive, making it the ideal choice for families who have to battle wintery weather. It has a variety of seating configurations for seven or eight passengers and offers plenty of storage space and creature comforts, including Toyota’s Entune system, a wide-screen rear-seat entertainment system that can play two movies at once, and the Driver Easy Speak that allows parents to talk to the third-row passengers without yelling.

Which of these Toyota models is the ideal choice for your family? Can’t decide? Stop by Hurlbert Toyota and try them all on for size.
