Georgia offers drivers a mild climate with very little snow, but rain is a major factor. Previous best-selling cars in the area, such as the Escape, Fusion and Camry, have shown that residents prefer a mix of both SUV and sedans. However, for 2012, there are a few differences in the top selling vehicles.
Honda Civic – The Civic continues to be a mainstay throughout the US thanks to its fuel economy. However, the updated 2012 model also provides more head and legroom, and the addition of an economy mode further increases mileage for those who travel those long Georgia highways.
Honda Accord – The Accord offers plenty in terms of fuel economy at 23/34 city/highway mpg, but the available stability controls and traction controls ensure that it handles those sudden storms with ease as well.
Kia Optima – It’s no surprise the Optima made it on the list since there is a manufacturing plant in Georgia. However, the overall safety with the six airbags, the fuel economy and the addition of electronic stability control for 2012 also make it a win on Georgia highways.
Ford Escape – The Escape makes its way back on the list as well. The improved fuel economy is a major factor, but the Intelligent Control System, available all-wheel drive and cargo space also increase its popularity among drivers.
Chevrolet Silverado – The Silverado edges out the F-150 in Georgia. The towing capacity, numerous trim packages and options, and the improved handling and ride have made it a popular choice in the area.
These top selling cars in Georgia for 2012 show that some of the same models are still popular, but those new choices are cropping up as well. Whether looking for a commuter car or a family traveler, each of these will provide the options needed for Georgia drivers.
