Some of the most popular cars shipped in 2019

Some of the most popular cars shipped in 2019

When we talk about great cars, we often focus on models that most people can never afford. While brands like Porsche present us with awesome vehicles, only a few people drive them. Because of that, we figured it would be interesting to put a different spin on the most popular cars.

With 2019 behind us, we can take a look at some of the most frequently shipped cars. They represent what people really drive and which car marques they trust.

As a vehicle shipping company, Corsia Logistics has a good glimpse of America’s daily drivers. Join us in seeing who wins the real popularity contest – have a glance at our list of the popular cars shipped in 2019.

Toyota takes the lead

For the longest time, Toyota has held a firm presence on the US market. It seems like the automaker’s portion of the car pie keeps getting bigger and bigger. That is hardly surprising though, given its reputation for reliable cars.

When it comes to daily drivers, Americans are pragmatic. We want something that is easy to maintain and doesn’t cost a ton to drive around. On top of that, even though we love our big cars, regular-size sedans seem to be quite popular, too. Maybe even more so, as Toyota Corolla is one of the vehicles we see the most on car carriers. However, this is not the only Toyota model on our list!

Brothers in arms – Corolla and Camry

To the untrained eye, the Camry may not seem all that different from a Corolla. A quick online search will reveal that plenty of people consider the Camry to be redundant. So why do we still see so many people choosing it over the Corolla? And how come Toyota has two popular vehicles in pretty much the same value class?

Simply put, the Camry just makes a better family car. It offers a bit more space, comparable fuel efficiency, and some additional benefits. It also has feature options that are not available for the Corolla.

One thing that many people underestimate is the slightly more conservative styling of the Camry. For a while, Japanese cars have been sporting some pretty modernistic styling that many people dislike. Because of that, some flock to the less in-your-face design of the present Toyota Camry. When you put all of that together, you can see why Toyota has two super viable models in overlapping price segments.

Breaking the mold – BMW 3 Series

cars shipped in 2019 BMW3

When I heard that models of the BMW 3 Series were among the most commonly shipped cars in 2019, I was surprised. Why? Because BMW is not even the most popular German brand in general. And yet the company’s entry-level series enjoy quite the popularity. Why?

As it turns out, BMW 3 Series may be the perfect combination of several desirable factors. Here they are:

  • Affordable luxury. BMW is famous for luxury elements even in their more budget options. This makes the 3 Series excellent for anyone who wants to enjoy higher-end car design.
  • Sporty feel. The German marque has been making awesome sports cars for decades. Every BMW carries that snappy spirit with it, and the 3 Series offers an easy way to get it. Its standard engine scores at 255 hp, which is nothing to scoff at.
  • Comfortable and bigger than it looks. Many people have noted that even though it is a lower-level BMW, it is not small at all. It also puts a lot of emphasis on proper comfort both on the highway and in the city.

Additionally, when shipping a car from Boston to Miami for example, the BMW 3 Series is a common sight. Turns out value-minded snowbirds enjoy this car for its blend of luxury and affordability. Of course, it is a step above the Camry, but you also get a completely different experience.

Surprisingly, another behemoth of German automaking – Audi, didn’t cut the list of popularity. It doesn’t mean, however, the brand’s models don’t deserve your attention. Check one out here: The low-key supercar – Audi R8!

Back to Japan – Honda Accord

Who would have guessed half a century ago that the most popular cars in the United States will be primarily Japanese picks? Still, we cannot lump all those vehicles together. Although many think Honda and Toyota to be pretty much the same, they are different.

For starters, enthusiasts consider Honda to be the sportier option. Plus, a lot of folks swear by the reliability of Honda cars, even more so than Toyota. Finally, many people consider Honda Accord to be a great pick, regardless of the trim. The same cannot be said for the Camry, where lower-level trims are often lacking.

With all that said, most people still find Toyota and Honda to have pretty comparable lineups. Even their design language is similar. But through all these foreign cars, one question comes to the front – where are the US vehicles?

The lone US wolf – Ford Fusion

We will wrap up our list with an American entry. Although foreign car marques continue to rise in popularity, the Fusion holds strong. This is not without reasons either!

In the face of all the edgy designs, Fusion comes with a great conservative look. It reminds me of older Aston Martins, which is definitely a good thing. Add to that the available sporty engines (V6 all the way!), and you get a nimble, yet surprisingly affordable beast. It is good to know that the US has some alternatives to the dominating Japanese models.

What cars did you expect to be on the list?

Our list of popular cars shipped in 2019 turned out to be a bit homogenous. Although the sedan seems to be getting a smaller market share through the years, it is still holding up. At least that is what I judge from the most commonly shipped cars last year.

What were your expectations, though? I suppose most of us could guess the Toyota models, but I am not sure about the others. Did you expect to see an SUV or truck, perhaps? Or other marques, such as VW or Nissan?

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
