While 2016 technically isn’t over yet, our fleet fuel card company likes reviewing the top-selling cars of each year. Here are this year’s models from least popular to most popular:

Honda CR-V

The CR-V is not only the only compact SUV on the best-seller list, it’s also Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy (in the compact SUV category) for this year. The sporty and stylish crossover can comfortably seat five and offers nearly 71 cubic feet of cargo space.

Nissan Altima

This year’s Altima offers 27/39 (city/highway) mpg fuel efficiency and a stylish, comfortable cabin with room for the entire family. It also comes with a standard 2.5-liter engine in its regular trim, S, SR, SV, and SL trim or a larger 3.5-liter engine in an SR or SL version.

Honda Accord

With its reputable resale value, a 2.4-liter engine, and 185 horsepower, the Accord has been one of the most popular cars among drivers of all ages. This year’s model offers buyers the choice of a coupe, sedan, and hybrid as well as fuel efficiency, safety, and technological features from remote start to Honda Sensing.

Hyundai Elantra

As an IIHS top safety pick, the Elantra beats out the Sonata as an efficient and affordable mid-sized sedan. With trims like the SE, Sport, and Limited, consumers can choose between a 1.8-liter engine and a 2.0-liter engine. They can even choose a manual gearbox.

Toyota Corolla

Even though the Corolla is number six on this list, it’s actually the number-one selling car of all time. For years, drivers have turned to its overall quality, affordability, and fuel efficiency – not to mention its improved style and advanced technological options.

Honda Civic

Ever since the Civic’s redesign, it has become a top pick among consumers and has earned the Overall Best Buy Award from Kelley Blue Book. The veteran model comes in a coupe, hatchback, sedan and soon-to-be-released sport model called the Type R.

Toyota Camry

For the past several years, the Toyota Camry has been the top-selling car in the country. With up to 33 mpg mileage, four different gasoline trims (the LE, XLE, SE, and XSE), and three different hybrid trims (Hybrid LE, Hybrid SE, Hybrid XLE), there’s a trim for everyone.

Ram 1500

With 395 horsepower and great highway gas mileage (up to 28 mpg), the Ram 1500 offers more than just a comfortable ride. It’s also equipped with a reliable infotainment system and gives owners more than 9.300 pounds of towing capability.

Chevrolet Silverado

Even though Chevrolet makes 15 different car and truck models, their Silverado is the best-selling one. With its beefy build, durability, and roomy bed and cab options, it’s no wonder it comes in at #2 on the list.

Ford F-150

For decades, Ford’s F-150 and its F-series siblings have been some of the top-selling trucks in the country, and this year is no different. After Ford’s aluminum-body remodel last year, the truck became more popular than ever among truck lovers new and old.
