Toyota Corolla – Although many reviewers consider the compact Toyota Corolla merely adequate in the intensely competitive small car field, the sales numbers of this affordable family car tell a different story. For 2010, Corolla racked up 266,082 sales, cinching the number three spot among sales leaders. Corolla is down from 2009 sales of 296,874, however, which is why it lost the number two spot for 2010 to Honda Accord. MSRP starting at $15,600 and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway are good reasons why Corolla remains high on the top 10 sales list.
