Delaware offers a variety of weather, which means drivers have to be prepared for both the mild and the treacherous. In previous years, the best-selling vehicles have included the Honda Civic, Accord and CR-V, along with the Toyota Camry. For 2012, that list still looks very similar, with Honda and Toyota making a strong showing.
Honda Civic – With its high fuel economy (32 mpg combined) and overall handling, the Civic continues to be a favorite in Delaware. It handles traveling, yet has front-wheel drive that will help in inclement weather.
Ford F-150 – While the F-150 may top many other best selling lists, it isn’t quite as popular here. It does offer heavy towing capacity, decent fuel economy for a truck, and improved handling that can cut through snow and ice with ease.
Honda Accord – The Accord provides great gas mileage at 23/34 mpg, which makes those long commutes easier in the wallet. However, the stability controls and front-wheel drive make it a great option for all-weather driving.
Toyota Camry – The Camry remains a popular option as well, thanks to safety features like the 10 airbags that are standard, and the hands-free BLU Logic system. Add in the fuel economy, 5-star safety rating and front wheel drive, and it’s easy to see why Delawareans appreciate this car.
Honda CR-V – The CR-V offers an impressive 23/31 mpg city/highway thanks to an Eco Assist system and the Econ mode, making it a great option for commuters. The larger size is family friendly, and the available all-wheel drive handles all types of weather.
The best selling cars in Delaware in 2012 are very similar to what they’ve been in the past. These vehicles offer the fuel economy, comfort and handling that drivers need, regardless of the time of year or the weather.
