DETROIT---America s top-selling car is in danger
of losing its title.
Toyota s Camry has been No one for more than
a decade, but the company is stretching to keep
it there with price cuts, rebates and lease deals.
Camry sales fell two per cent from January
through June. Meanwhile its main rivals in the
midsize car market---the Honda Accord, Nissan
Altima and Ford Fusion---posted big gains. The
hot-selling Accord trailed Camry in sales by 21,000
at the end of June. Last year at this time the gap
Toyota has raised discounts and cut the Camry s
price in an effort to keep it on top. In early July,
the Camry s average sales price was the lowest
of the nine top selling midsize cars, according to
data from JD Power and Associates obtained by
The Associated Press. Discounts on the Camry
were among the highest in the segment, according
to the data.
Camry has lost style points, literally. While the
car s ultra-conservative design appeals to many
loyal Toyota buyers who favor basic transportation,
others are defecting to the sportier Accord, Fusion
and Altima, industry analysts say. Those cars also
have more features and better performance, they
"Although the Camry is not that old, it certainly
seems older than the rest," said Jessica Caldwell,
senior analyst for the Edmunds.com automotive
website. She says Toyota needs to hold onto
Camry s market share because it s the mainstay
for the brand in the US, Toyota s largest market.
Through June, Toyota sold 207,626 Camrys.
But Accord sales rose 21 per cent during the same
period to 186,860. Altima sales gained nearly eight
per cent to 167,787, while Fusion sales rose nearly
19 per cent to 161,146. Since January, the Camry s
share of the midsize car market has fallen by 1.6
percentage points to 12.6 per cent, according to
Ward s Automotive. During the same period, the
Accord gained 0.5 points to 11.2 per cent.
To combat the falling sales and market share,
Toyota has lowered the Camry s price. The Camry
on average sold for just over $20,900 in early July,
about $1,400 below the price from a year ago,
according to the JD Power data. Discounts, such
as low-interest loans and sweet lease deals, totaled
nearly $3,100 per Camry, up almost $1,900 from
July of last year and among the highest in the
market, according to the data.
The Accord is rolling off dealer lots even though
it sells for roughly $2,600 more than the Camry
for an average of $23,500. That includes discounts
of only $1,300 per car, the lowest in the market.
The Camry used to sell with few discounts, but
its average price is typically among the lowest in
the segment, Caldwell said. That s likely because
Camry buyers view cars as simple transportation
and don t often load them up with expensive fea-
tures, she said.
Toyota is happy with the Camry s top position
in the market, and it will continue to promote
the car s quality and reliability, said spokeswoman
Toyota normally sells more than 30,000 of the
cars per month, and sales nearly hit
40,000 in May, Schaffner said.
She wouldn t comment on when a
revamped Camry might come out, but
said Toyota president Akio Toyoda has
been emphasising stylish design and fun-
to-drive cars in the company s recent
models such as the Avalon full-size car
and the Corolla compact that s due out
Edmunds Caldwell thinks Toyota will
keep the Camry ahead of the Accord,
where it s been since 2002. Toyota can
sell more Camrys to rental car companies
and other fleet buyers to boost sales, and
it can keep offering discounts, she said.
Honda typically doesn t sell to rental car
companies. If Camry sales fall to No two,
then Toyota runs the risk of losing future
sales to Ford, Honda or others, Caldwell
The Camry may also be losing sales
to newer Toyota vehicles such as the pop-
ular RAV4 small crossover SUV and the
Avalon, both of which are newer and
more stylish, said John McEleney, who
operates Toyota and General Motors deal-
erships in Clinton, Iowa, near the Mis-
McEleney said his Toyota sales have
held steady this year, but Camry sales
are down. But he maintains that the
Camry is still a great car. "I drive one.
I just love the car," he said. "But," he
admitted, "it doesn t have a lot of flash."
