For the first time in its life, the Nissan Altima has outsold both the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, taking the title of America’s Best Selling Sedan.
Altima sales were up by 27 percent compared to last year, helping Nissan achieve a record month in sales. Currently, Nissan is offering a number of incentives, including 0 percent financing for 60 months, as a means of helping move Altimas, and previous incentives surely contributed to the car’s success.
Fleet sales weren’t included in the sales breakdown, so we can’t be sure how many made it into consumers hands rather than rental car fleets. Even though the Altima is top dog for now, the spread between the Altima and the third place Camry is less than 1,000 units, so the likelihood of things changing by year’s end is quite strong.
