The Top 5 Selling Cars in Connecticut in 2012

Top Five Connecticut

Connecticut offers plenty of rain and its fair share of snow during the winter months, which means drivers need vehicles that can handle these conditions. Top selling vehicles in previous years have included the Toyota Camry, Corolla and the Ford Fusion. However, those aren’t quite the same for 2012 as some of the top selling cars differ.

  • Volkswagen Jetta – Surprisingly, the Jetta was a popular option in Connecticut. The independent rear suspension coupled with the turbocharged engine that is available offers improved handling in both the rain and snow, while the optional Direct Shift Gearbox adds both convenience and the feel of manual driving that many found appealing.

  • Ford Escape – The Escape offers drivers a respectable 20/27 mpg city/highway for the all-wheel drive automatic. The available AWD also handles a variety of weather conditions, and the family-friendly size makes it great for trips as well.

  • Honda Accord – The Accord continues to show up on top selling lists as it provides a roomy sedan that delivers 23/34 mpg fuel economy, traction and stability controls and qualifies as a PZEV vehicle, making it economic and safer for the family and environment.

  • Toyota Camry – The Camry’s overall affordability, improved fuel economy over other available models, durability and front wheel drive make it a great option for those in Connecticut, regardless of the rain or snow.

  • Ford F-150 – The F-150 offers everything drivers want in a truck: towing capacity, fuel economy, a variety of engine options and drivetrain upgrades such as a two-speed transfer case or electronic locking rear axle. All these features combine to make a truck that can handle weight and deal with the weather as well.

These top five selling cars in Connecticut were quite different from previous years, with some newcomers to the list making a good showing in both performance and sales numbers.
