2015 is winding down to a close—it’s an ideal time to take a look at the road behind us and evaluate where we’ve been. At the beginning of the year we made a few car predictions for 2015. For one, as predicted, iPhone/Android integration has certainly been a big hit this year, as well as electric and hybrid cars. Small trucks didn’t make the top 10 list here, but trucks have certainly been popular this year!
This week, we’ll be looking at the most successful cars and vehicles in terms of sales. Here’s a list of the top selling cars of 2015, based on information provided by Kelley Blue Book:
