And The Most Sold Car In The World Is...
The Toyota Corolla. Over the last 45 years Japanese car maker Toyota have manufactured a record 32 Million Cars! It's always been a small family car. Cheap to buy and cheap to run worked well for Toyota over the last 45 years, and even with all the problems with the car industry at the moment, don't expect to hear of this little record breakers reign coming to an end anytime soon.
1. Toyota Corolla: (1966- ) - 32,000,000+
Have You Ever Owned One?
Karthik from Australia on October 26, 2016:
Got the name of unknown cars with pictures. there is no Indian cars in the list. Just wonder.
DoodleMonkey on December 14, 2015:
just because a car has the same NAME for many years, its not the same car.
it would be a lot more interesting to know how many of the same type that been made. the list would be totally different then."
I'd agree. Some cars keeping the same name have even moved into different market sectors. The name is essentially a marketing device.
"If it has the same name then it is the same car, it's just a different mark. i.e a Mark 1 Golf and a Mark 2 Golf are the same car, but different versions."
Yes but a Golf mark 1 is very, very different to a current Golf. The current Astra doesn't even have any styling cues from the original; they are as different as a Ford Escort Mk1 to a current Ford Focus.
issabendeck on November 25, 2013:
toyota corolla is just a lucky shoot that didn't go wrong , what i mean by that , is that the company started making those cars in the 66, together with nissan coming up with the sunny , , competence wasn't that high at the time, and toyota took the advantage , something what nissan didn't , b.coz nissan was always a step behind toyota in terms of production and the car was cheap and +mpg and good in terms of durability , those days there wasn't too many materials to resycle, and materials where too cheap and the best quality, there didn't existed machines to build the cars , there was alot of man hand work , but now things have changed and have gotten very very expencive , so expencixe that auto makers now have developed important recycing machines that turn the old cars into pieces and remake cars again form practically garbage b.coz they mix plastic with iron and other materials and make the new engine blocks from that, and are parts that they heat them to very high temperatures and cool this parts againg and loosing their original properties, ending up been weack and making the durability short, cos this is what has happened to his so wanted corolla and many other cars today and for your surprice europeans and jap are in front of the list , read in google TEN SURPRISINGLY UNRELIABLE CARS , so dont be so happy about your corolla , in the internet you might find lots of true and some lies , and dont bealieve those kelly boock and shit , coz they right about peoples preferences not about really good cars, jap cars used to be good but not any more , they have become too comercial, even those lexus , they are pure cheap publicity , ther are many costumers complains , about this cars getting oil sludge , i ll tAKE A CHEVY CAVALIER OF A GOLF OVER ANY OF THIS CARS JUST CHECK, HOW MANY YEARS THE STAYED IN PRODUCTION AND DONT THINCK THAT THE PRODUCTION STOPED COZ THE CARS ARE BAD BUT COZ THEY ARE TOO GOOD , coz there was no bussines on building them coz they dont breack so there isn't bussiness for selling spare parts , something that automaker LOVE , that's why the corolla is still in production cos it gives lots of spare parts profit, same happened to MAZDA 323 really great car and they switched to that crappy mazda 3 cos the 3 breacks alot every thig that a car maker takes away from the market is eather for 2 reazons , they are really shity or they are too good , really shity coz this brings a weak credibility to the factories , and too good coz tos dont bring any profit to the factories , so that they keep a mid point , its hard to keep costumers and factories happy you know
Scott Gibson from Rothwell, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom on October 04, 2013:
My first car was a 1980 Corolla. I've also had a 2002 Vauxhall Vectra 2.2 DTi (which was terrible) and I now have a 1999 Passat 1.8T which I've now owned for over 9 years. Buying it for £4,500 in 2004 the Passat has been good value for money except for a recent gearbox refurb and with a lot of TLC it looks almost like new. Economy is fine, even with $8 per US gallon fuel prices.
Kenny on May 02, 2013:
I have owned probably 25 different autos in my life. European, Japanese, and American. Most cars or trucks run about the same with minor differences. The public perception depends on the propaganda the manufacturer pumps into the minds of the people.
My wife drives a Lincoln for about 5 years and my daughter drives an Accord she has recently purchased. They ride and operate roughly the same and look similar however Honda's propaganda machine is better than Lincolns. Perceived value.
I prefer the F series truck after owning all the major brands. It really is the type auto you can hand down to your children. I have had 2 with over 300,000 miles and they just kept running even with the abuse I give em.
dannyhewitt on February 05, 2013:
Fascinating stuff about the Ford Model A. It's surprises me how many cars were sold at the time but there are quite a lot of them around today. There's an interestign article on this website with Peter Wallman who is a classic car specialist from London speaking on the future of classic cars: http://www.motortradesinsight.co.uk/

Albert on April 13, 2012:
My 2012 toyota Corolla OMG, what a car... cheaper than most, low gas consumption, high millage per galon, safe, reliable, good muscles, nice design, quiet, smooth, enough room, good balance, steady run, cheaper insurance rate, best resell price. It is almost perfect. This is my second card after a 1989 corolla I just sold in almost perfect condition. I did not know this is the most sold car in the universe but I really know why. bonus: my wife love it and thinks I am like a hero buying a corolla again.

It's great to see the Corolla at number 1. I just purchased a 2011 Corolla, and I LOVE IT. It is such a smooth drive, and the gas mileage is amazing. I had a Camry before, and the Corolla is so much better. Happy to see my car number 1 on the list, it's a great car, and to the people posting negitive comments about it, obviously have never owned, or drove a Corolla.

It is the only car that had no design changes. EVERY pannel form the 1st car wwould fit to the last
All others just took the name to the next model. All cheats. Even the Beetle

Sean on February 04, 2012:
Im supprised mercedes benz cars are not on the list and they are one of the oldest car manufacture in the world my perrents only have brought them for the last 35 years and they buy toyota landcrusers and Prado's in the usa they are called gx-470 but the Landcruser Prado in Australia doesn't have a v8 just the 4.0 litre v6 or 3.0 intercooled turbo diesel. The Landcruser comes with the v8 gasoline and turbo diesel v8 and in the 100 series landcruser came with a v8 gasoline or a strait 6 inter cooled turbo diesel in the usa they are called lexus lx470 in the 100 series the 200 series lx570. It is a shame the USA doesn't get the turbo diesel land cruser's and here in australia most 4wds are turbo diesel because of fuel pricers and more cars are coming with a turbo diesel option like me cedes benz and bmw and volvo most mecedes benz suv are turbo diesel and i think california state government in the usa should have turbo diesel cars if i lived there i would buy my car interstate and in australia the federal government would over power the state government's around the country i don't know why brakobama doesn't do the same and he has been to australia

feebee3 on February 01, 2012:
One person repeatedly commented it sucks, implying something negative. However from a pleasure standpoint, sucks is pretty good.
Concerning the patriotism=buying American,my experience is they have good design, have poor reliability and questionable quality. I've never had an American car that lasted more than 90,000 miles, while Japanese models are just getting broken in good at 150,000. However, the worst car I ever had was a Ford Cortina,second worst Chevy Vega and third worst, a mid 70s Monte Carlo--it's transmission dropped onto the pavement at 31,000. Some Chrysler products have been pretty bad--Plymouth Fury, Chrysler Sebring convertible and Chrysler Cordoba. My all time favorites are a 60's Barracuda and a Honda Del Sol.

Ashu on January 14, 2012:
To be frank, I have never seen most of the Ford cars posted here physically. I own a corolla which is the most popular car by far in East Africa. I am thinking to buy a Peugeot (205 or 405), and glad to hear a couple of good comments about these models. A good list, anyway.
Heng Yong Tuck on January 12, 2012:
I still find it hard to give up my fourth Peugeot 405 and I am glad that it ranks among the top 50 and also as a single type, unlike Civics or Corollas, which are many different models under the same name. We must also not forget that the 405 is still made and sold in Iran, maybe recently under a different name "Peugeot Pars", and that when considered should add to the number.
a on January 03, 2012:
FIAT 124 selled some 15 million if you include the cars made under other companies badges
Segun on January 01, 2012:
Well in Nigeria, the Corolla is easily the most popular, low running costs and all! I've owned an 83' Benz 230E, and 2 BMW 3 Series....I'm planning to buy another 3 Series, the best car in the world!

I have a 12 years old Turkish made Fiat-Uno. It's just like new produced. Looks like brand new and its performance is still perfect. Fiat Company really creates durable&well designed cars.
white waters on December 19, 2011:
All I can say that my 1972 Chevy Impala was one of the best cars that I ever had.Yes it was a gas guzzler but smooth, powerful and quite.What happened to those cars.They were simple and reliable.
Paul on December 18, 2011:
Sorry, I meant Amercan cars have not been popular in Asia.
Toyata is relatively cheap and reliable. if it has been selling well in USA, you can imagine how it would outsell all the other cars elsewhere in the world, where general income of the people is lower.
Paul on December 18, 2011:
For those living in North America and are surprised that toyota corolla is the best selling car, it is because corolla has been huge in Asia and other parts of the world, because not only is/was the car relatively cheaper (especially compared to the European cars, particulary before the '90s), it consumes very much less gas, where it has been a lot more expensive compared to that in USA. American cars generally have been popular in Asia, asides from China recently in view of their high gas consumption.
Muhammad on December 13, 2011:
Solid, Powerful, Reliable
Balanced Horsepower/Torque. Load it with more than a ton and you wouldn't notice that much lag in performance.
NORMATIVE seats (rear/frontal) and Steering Wheele dimensions, Very comfortable, Never get a backache or anyway tired of driving or sitting in it.
about 40 years old and still comparable.

for me to own a car as campus boy is dream .but im in luv with toyota landcruiser prado
Bilty on December 01, 2011:
Uh, right. The Toyota Corolla, Camry-both are rental cars. The Toyota as well as the Honda Civic have undergone mulitple redesignes and have been available as more than just one type of car. Both have Been available as two and four door sedans, two door coupes, station wagons, etc. The only thing that hasn't changed on these is the name-oh wait, Toyota counts "Maitrix" sales under "Corolla" sales. Right. Sorry, the Volkswagen Beetle had the same layout and basic body style from 1938 up to the end, in late 2003. To me, the best selling CAR-not NAME-is the Volkswagen Beetle. If VW were to do what Toyota and Honda do-call the replacement of the original by the same name-then they would have called the Golf the "Beetle", and we'd have nearly FIFTY MILLION in sales.
NESTLE on November 29, 2011:
TOYOTA COROLLA IS THE WORLD'S ONLY BEST SELLING CAR TILL DATE. NO ONE CAN BEAT THE COROLLA. AND THE FUTURE OF COROLLA IS FULLY SECURE B'COZ THERE IS NO CAR AS GOOD AS A COROLLA IN THE MARKET TILL DATE. THE TOYOTA AND LEXUS BOTH COME FROM THE SAME OWNWER AND ARE THE WORLD'S ALL-TIME BEST-SELLING CARS. TO SOME PEOPLE THE COROLLA LOOKS SMALL OR BUGGY BUT THE ONES WHO DON'T CARE ABOUT COROLLA ARE JUST NOT ABLE TO OR DON'T HAVE THE HABBIT TO LISTEN WHAT THE TRUTH IS. PEOPLE BEING JEALOUS OF COROLLA ARE JUST JEALOUS B'COZ THEY DON'T OWN ONE. THE COROLLA GIVES AMAZING SMOOTH RIDES WITH GREAT PLEASURE ON FUEL AND THE SPACE. ITS GRIP IS REALLY GOOD. THE NEWER MODELS OF THE COROLLA ARE THE BEST OF ALL. I HAVE SAT IN ONE OF THE COROLLAS MANUFACTURED IN 1988! IT WAS MANUAL GEAR 4-CYLINDER CAR RUNNING IN A VERY GOOD CONDITION AND BELEIVE ME THAT IT WAS 23 YEARS OLD. NOW THAT'S TAKEN THE CAKE AWAY. YOU GO ASK ANY CAR DRIVER (SENSIBLE) HE WILL TELL THAT THERE IS NO CAR AS GOOD AS A COROLLA IF IT CAN GO 23 YEARS WITHOUT PROBLEM. THERE ARE OTHER CARS IN RANGE OF COROLLA LIKE--- NISSAN SUNNY HONDA CIVIC MITSUBISHI LANCER ETC. BUT THERE IS NO CAR AS CHEAP AS GOOD AND AS RELIABLE AS A COROLLA. MY DAD AND HIS COLLIGUES ATOTAL OF SIX PEOPLE OWN 7 COROLLAS! NOW THAT'S THE MAJORITY PEOPLE LIVING THE COROLLA. IF I WAS A BILLIONAIRE OR EVEN A MILLIONAIRE OF COURSE I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT A LEXUS LX570 OR A TOYOTA SEQUOIA OR A LAND CRUISER BUT I WOULD HAVE ALWAYS HAD A COROLLA IN FIRST PLACE. AS IT IS SAID "FIRST IMPPRESSION IS T HE LAST IMPRESION" I VERY MUCH BELEIVE IT AND I HAVE EXPERIENCED AND SEEN PEOPLE EXPERIENCING ON THEIR CARS SOME OF WHICH ARE ACCORD, TIIDA, ETC. THE ACCORDS AND TIIDAS ARE ALSO GOOD BUT THE PEOPLE OWNING THEM DO HAVE MANY MORE PROBLEMS COMPARED TO THE COROLLA OWNERS. THE COMPLAINTS ARE THERE IN COROLLA BUT ITS VERY CHEAP TO FIX IT. IF THERE IS ANY CAR(IMPOSSIBLE) WHICH IS SOLD HIGHER THAN 35MILLION (SALES) IN 45 YEARS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT ON THE GUINNES BOOK PAGE WHERE THE COROLLA IS AT PRESENT. LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST I WILL BE BACK WITH MORE COMMENTS. PLS. IGNORE THE COMMENTS IF THEY DISTURB YOU AND
NO OFFENFCE TO ANYBODY OR ANY OTHER CAR BUT JUST THE TRUTH
bronz on November 28, 2011:
I'm not surprise that the corollary is number one.....I don't personally own one but I've heard so much good things about this car and over here seems like every other person has a corolla....good car.

Nestle on November 18, 2011:
TOYOTA COROLLA is the world's best selling car and comes from TOYOTA- the JAPANESE MOST ESPENSIVE CARMAKER. I own a 2008 model and don't wish to sell it till it tells me to which is never going to happen. There can be good cars but not as good as a Corolla. It's strong with all the best features that a car of $21,000 would have. The leather seats are always cool, the A/C is awesome, the fuel consumption is less and the space is tooooo much. It has a big trunk with almost one-tonne capacity. The Engine is strong- 1.8 xli. Everyone who can buy a car must feel the happiness of being the owner of the world's best selling car by buying the COROLLA. It reaches to almost 200km/h-which can be too dangerous and too adventurous. It's 0-100 pick-up time is just 9 seconds and 0-200 is just 1 minute.

Islanda on November 09, 2011:
Not surprised Corolla is number one. Owned three over the years. The first one a station wagon that I ran hard from 1977 through 1994 and was still going strong when I sold it after I bought my first F150. I've owned two Camrys also. No complaints here.
cartwright da boy 97 on November 08, 2011:
Some cars on this list you could argue with the Ford model a selling as many as it did in 4 or so years. Where are they all now.Why is there so many fiats. Did you know fiat stands for found in a tip. Another car that should be on the list is the vw polo they are so popular round here in darlington ne united kingdom

This list doesn't represent american car sales veru well I live in truck country most everyonr around here ownd a truck in the last ten years chevy dodge and ford have been equal with a few more nissans and toyotas showing up but from late 90s and back it was mostly chevys and fords chevy trucks have dtrong motors but ttansmissions always go out as far as cars go ive known many corrola owners who had passed well over 300k miles on orignal drive train you wont get that out of any newer domestic car

Nigel on October 11, 2011:
I agree that it is a silly list as it combines completely different vehicles which happen to be sold under the same name. If you want to do this then you need to combine Renault 5/ Clio, Peugeot 205, 206 and 207, Peugeot 405,406,407 etc . A mark 6 Golf has nothing in common with a mark 1 Golf and same with Corolla. You need to look at individual model sales as this list makes no sense at all.

go toyota corolla!
Dr Rockpile from USA on October 10, 2011:
I love that the Ford Model T is #7 on the list. Not much competition back then eh. Fun hub!
newton on October 09, 2011:
waoh, cant believe my old time favourite, prado, is that ooold. the corolla is also great n a very common one in my country, kenya-probably a quarter of all corollas r here. but my best is the mustang-hope I drive one before am 35. great list guys
Ryan on October 05, 2011:
Chevrolet has always been and always will be the best american auto manufacturer.
Caddy on October 03, 2011:
This list isn't accurate anymore & needs updating i.e. Ford announced 10 million mustangs milestone earlier this year.

I own a 1988 VW Golf GL 4-door...it has its issues. The last couple owners treated it like crap, didn't use 91 octane, didn't keep it in a garage (a MUST if you live in the midwest United States...rust will show up within a year if you leave your car outside in this climate), they didn't change the oil at the right intervals, didn't replace fuses with the right ones, didn't change the wheel bearing in the back right wheel which was grinding up a storm, didn't recharge the A/C, didn't re-do the falling headliner, didn't get replacement tires even after dry rot, lost a hubcap...this poor, innocent vehicle!!!
Not to worry, it's in safe hands now =) So far I've changed all fluids, cleaned and fixed interior, cleaned fuel injectors, replaced air filter, oil filter and fuel lines, replaced wheel bearings, getting new tires soon, replaced all fuses, clamped down rattling exhaust and I even gave it a nice little straight-pipe chrome exhaust tip =)

Interesting, own Fiat Uno Turbo and Golf Cabrio, both in good position and good cars
Dresden on September 20, 2011:
Very good list, thanks for your efforts. As far as I know, Honda Fit/Jazz deserves to be on this list too. Honda announced that global cumulative sales reached 3.5 Million units in July 2010. Current number may be around 4 million by now.

gary shaw on August 29, 2011:
Many of these cars were not the same cars. They were totally different cars but retained the same name. The Peugeot 504 remained the same car throughout its production so therefore should be in a class of its own.
John on August 28, 2011:
The new Corolla is junk. They dumbed down the car and it looks like shit.
The F-150 is the best car on the list!
nunuethiopia on August 24, 2011:
so far in the list......civic is the best
robert on August 21, 2011:
toyota corolla is simply a good vehicle...that's why people keep buying it....however...I owned a 1995 ford escort put over 100,000 with no problems and traded it in for a 98 ranger, put over 100 000 miles on that without an issue...I don't understand why people pan us automakers...?
Kyle on August 14, 2011:
I've owned three BMW 3 Series.
I'm surprised that the Toyota Camry has sold only ~10% more worldwide than BMW has sold 3 Series worldwide.
Eric on August 04, 2011:
Americans should take more pride in American brands. The reason so many of these foreign car brands are so good is because many of them were actually assembled in America. The Big Three should bring back more car assembly plants to America and provide jobs as well as better quality vehicles. Ford should bring back the Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Continental. GM needs to bring back the Chevrolet Caprice, Buick Roadmaster, Buick Le Sabre, and the other large sedans. I'm surprised Chevrolet's C-Series pickups aren't on this list. They're almost ubiquitous where I live.
μεταχειρισμενα αυτοκινητα on July 10, 2011:
How i wish i could have at least one of this car listed.I c love the Ford Escort car .But for now i had my car ?????????????? ?????????? although it was not new but still works good
Dave on June 28, 2011:
I'm surprised I've owned 6 of the best sellers.
Five were Fords. I can see why there isn't a Chevy
truck on the list. Ford F-Series is the best truck

kikoya on June 09, 2011:
ooops, forgot that i owned a citroen 2cv as well, but i sold it after only three months of use. i used to call it a "mean of transportation" because "car" sounded too much for that "thing"
kikoya on June 09, 2011:
91 Corolla 1.8 XLD - fantastic car but a bit lazy
63 Impala Sport Sedan - great but so unsafe...
82 Renault 5 GTL - Comfortable and economic, but rusted too fast
76 BMW 320 - utter crap. used way too much gas, never reliable

Ooh look, my dads car outsold the Model T by just over 1mil!

Toyota corolla is really great, our family has upgraded many times and even i have a new toyota corolla now, It is smooth and reliable.
shivneel on May 09, 2011:
corolla is by far the best selling and reliable car that has been manufactured. its maintanance free meaning theres little maintanance that needs 2 be done and the engine is reliable just keeps on going!! same as honda, honda is a great car as well.
