There are many ways to measure the popularity of a car. The most traditional is monthly as well as annual sales. Another measure of vehicle popularity is an online search. Many people who go to car sites plan to buy, which leads to real sales.
However, the number of online searches and unit sales don’t always match. Sometimes, some of the most searched vehicles weren’t among the top 10 selling vehicles at all. We did our research and we found out which are the most popular cars in the United States. Here is our list of the top 10 most popular cars.
