How in the Corolla?

Despite getting replaced later this year with an all-new model based on the Corolla Furia concept, the Toyota Corolla is somehow still outselling all of its competition, posting combined sales of 31,423 units including the Matrix hatchback. Runner-up was the Honda Civic, which was refreshed (and much improved) in only its second model year, selling 27,665. Third was the Hyundai Elantra (26,153) followed by the Ford Focus (24,929), Chevrolet Cruze (23,260), Volkswagen Jetta (15,505), Nissan Sentra (13,965), Mazda3 (10,505), Dodge Dart (8,091), and Kia Forte (5,931). How can we explain this? Well, it’s probably among the cheapest of the lot since it’s the oldest, and it’s a known quantity. What will be interesting to see is if the Corolla can maintain its spot at the top of the list when its price reaches parity with the competition’s.
