So which cars were most popular in 2005?

According to MSN Autos (based on visits to their site’s vehicle pages), these are:

1. Honda Civic. The redesigned 2006 Honda Civic features new safety equipment, increased horsepower, instrument panel gauges near the windshield, and a telescoping steering wheel. The sporty Civic Si is powered by a 197-horsepower 2.0-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine mated with a 6-speed manual transmission and features a helical-type limited-slip differential, a rear deck spoiler, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Civic Hybrid features the next-generation of Honda's Integrated Motor Assists (IMA) system. The IMA allows the new Civic Hybrid to achieve an EPA estimated city/highway fuel economy of 49/51 miles per gallon.

2. Honda Accord. The 2006 Honda Accord line receives a facelift with new front and rear bumper designs, a new grille, a new trunk lid with an integrated third brake light, LED taillights, redesigned 16-inch wheels, available 17-inch alloy wheels and new exhaust tips. Interior updates include a new steering wheel, new seat fabrics, a new shift knob with automatic transmission, a restyled gauge cluster and satin chrome vent accents.

3. BMW 3 Series. The 2006 3-Series is all new, featuring fresh styling, more powerful engines and a roomier interior. The new 3-Series is offered as the 325i Sedan and 330i Sedan—coupe and convertible versions will follow later in 2006.

4. Ford Mustang. The Mustang is all new for 2005, moved by either a 210-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine or a more powerful 300-horsepower V8 in the Mustang GT. Although immediately recognizable as a Mustang, the latest version offers thoroughly modern performance with powerful engines, and a three-link rear suspension with a Panhard rod for its rear-wheel-drive platform.

5. Volkswagen Jetta. The Jetta was redesigned for 2005, looking bigger and bolder with the new Volkswagen front end. For 2006 Volkswagen adds the all-new Jetta GLI and Jetta 2.0T to its lineup. Both new trims are both powered by a 200-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine.

6. Toyota Camry. Toyota's hot-selling passenger car was completely redesigned in 2003, getting its first new platform in 10 years. Last year the Camry featured redesigned headlights, new taillights, and a redesigned grille with a unique version for SE. ABS is standard on all versions, 5-speed automatic is available with the 4-cylinder engine, and vehicle stability control is now available on 4-cylinder versions. An all-new Camry will go on sale in March as a 2007 model.

7. Toyota Corolla. The ninth generation of the Corolla was introduced for 2003 and continues to appeal to a wide range of buyers. The 2006 Toyota Corolla remains unchanged after receiving a restyled front end in 2005 that included a new bumper design, a new grille, and new headlights and taillights.

8. Acura TL. The third-generation TL was introduced in 2004 with all-new styling and a slew of high-tech features. The 2006 Acura TL receives a standard tire-pressure-monitoring system. When equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, the TL receives engine control module changes to help reduce torque steer.

9. Ford F-150. The 2006 Ford F-150 offers a limited-edition Harley-Davidson Package with a Monotone Black exterior, 22-inch polished forged aluminum wheels, high-gloss Piano Black interior details, black aniline leather seating surfaces, and chrome details. The Harley-Davidson Package is available with either two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive—the first time ever offered on the F-150.

10. Toyota Prius. The second-generation Prius debuted in the fall of 2003 with Toyota's new Hybrid Synergy Drive. For 2006 a tire-pressure-monitoring system is now standard equipment, and leather seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a rear back-up camera are options for the first time.
