    Car Wars:  20 Best-Selling Cars in July 2021

    In spite of America transitioning from cars to SUVs, and even with a severe chip shortage, car sales were up in July 2021 versus July 2020.  Bear in mind, last July many dealerships were closed or curtailed due to COVID-19.  In fact, of the top 20, 19 were up.

    Toyota Camry led the way over Honda Civic in July, but it was close.  Year-to-date, Camry holds a 25,000 car lead over Civic and with Toyota’s chip issues getting better, there is little doubt Camry will hold the #1 position for the 16th straight year.

    Here are your top 20 best-selling cars for July 2021 and how those sales compare to July 2020 from the automakers that still report on a monthly basis:
