Most Popular Cars in Each State

Wisconsin_Chevy Impala


I’m sure we’ve all wondered about the answer to this for some time…well here it is! If you’ve ever been cruising the highway and thought to yourself that you are seeing an abnormal amount of Honda Accords, well then you may be right! Or perhaps the case is Ford Explorer…or even a Toyota. There’s a bunch on this list so keep going until you see which is most popular in your state!

Wyoming_Ford_Explorer

50.Wyoming: Ford Explorer

MSRP: $36,675

It’s no wonder Ford Explorers are so popular in Wyoming. Weather and terrain demand a vehicle that can take a beating. The Ford explore fits the bill with its intelligent terrain and 4 wheel drive management systems. This allows users to access a variety of controls depending on terrain conditions. Users will notice the Explorers performance changes to adapt to things like sand, mud or snow perfect for a Jackson Hole excursion). Plus, the Ford Explorer has a tow rating of 5,000 pounds powered by a 3.5 L eco-boost engine. Through in seven passengers and you have a party you can take anywhere.

West Virginia_Ford_Focus


49. Wisconsin: Chevrolet Impala

Wisconsin_Chevy Impala

MSRP: $28,020

Seems like Wisconsin residents can’t get enough of the Chevrolet Impala. And while it may not be known for winter performance, build quality and reliability make it a must have no matter the season. Also, it seems like gas mileage is a big win. With a potential mileage rate of 35 MPG over the the highway, it’s no wonder the Impala is quite popular. Plus, drivers love the way it handles and have you seen the new infotainment system? To adapt to snow, most drivers simply smack on snow tires or chains, and try to park inside whenever possible. In summary, sometimes, the best car for a state is not really the best car for a state, and that’s what makes it the best car for a state. At least that’s how Cheeseheads feel!

Washington_Honda_Civic_TypeR_01


48. West Virginia: Ford Focus

West Virginia_Ford_Focus

MSRP: $17,950

This is Ford‘s dirty little secret, even though they aren’t as popular in the US (approximately 1.1 million sell worldwide). However, West Virginia can vouch for the vehicle with its solid performance, lower price point and dependability. In fact, in past years the Ford Focus has unseated solid contenders like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic in terms of global sales. And you thought West Virginia would always be known for that silly junkyard reality show. Sometimes it takes an American auto manufacturer to bring things into— focus (just go with it already).

Virginia_Honda_Accord


47. Washington: Honda Civic

Washington_Honda_Civic_TypeR_01

MSRP: $19,450

Is it the compact design Washingtonians love so much? Maybe it’s the new hatchback option. Who know. All we really know is the state of Washington is in love with the Honda Civic. A few years ago, the Civic had a few safety challenges when Japan smeared their untarnished reputation over faulty airbags (potentially fatal). However, they have since rebounded and are doing a phenomenal job coming back. Sure, you might go through a few sets of wiper blades and snow tires. yet, for safety and reliability, the Honda Civic is hard to beat on a snowy, or er–rainy day.

Vermont_Subaru-Legacy-SpecB


46. Virginia: Honda Accord

Virginia_Honda_Accord

MSRP: $23,720

Honda is always a solid performer, no matter the driving conditions. Youtuber FlyinGato posted a video to his account of an Accord driving in more than a foot of snow! Usually the CRV makes all of the snow worthy drive lists, but Honda installed a few surprises for its latest Accord, including a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, nice! Oh yeah, they also implemented a hybrid powertrain for smooth shifting and superior performance. if that happens to be too rich, common residents of the commonwealth can opt for the 1.5 liter engine and manual transmission. It’s enough to make any Tech Hokie take flight.

Utah_Honda_Accord_Coupe_


45. Vermont: Subaru Legacy

Vermont_Subaru-Legacy-SpecB

MSRP: $22,545

Need to go over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house? Chances are, if you live in Vermont, you use a Subura Legacy as your sleigh. Three words seal the deal… all wheel drive. Plus, it comes standard with any legacy (translation, no upgrade charge). And when everyone is two pants sizes larger from eating holiday turkey and ham, rest assured the cabin has plenty of room. Legacies are known for having a roomy cabin size capable of fitting 5 regular or holiday sized folk inside. Also, their trademark slower acceleration is perfect for keeping Vermont residents safe on slippery winter roads.

Texas_Nissan_Altima_


44. Utah: Honda Accord

Utah_Honda_Accord_Coupe_

MSRP: $23,720

Did we mention earlier U.S. News and World Report states the Honada Accord is ranked #4 in its class (mid-size sedans)? It was also the winner for best family car (perfect for a state known for sister wives and massive amounts of offspring). Even better, it was a finalist for best car for the money. No wonder Utah loves this car! Its responsive handling and more energetic engine make it the perfect desert twists and turns. Epic gas mileage seals the deal. You can almost hear Micheal Bolton crooning its praises if you listen close enough.

Tennessee_Nissan_Altima_


43. Texas: Nissan Altima

Texas_Nissan_Altima_

MSRP: $24,000

Texans were in love with the Altima before 2019 saw the addition of all wheel drive. If bigger is better in Texas, the selling point for the Altima is the roomy trunk (you can fit three bodies in there). Throw in a 2.5 liter engine with an average 31 mpg rating and you have a recipe for Texas love. However, the coolest feature has to be the CVT (continuously variable transmission). It mimics shift points of traditional transmission models, a feature sure to thrill any Texan looking for authenticity and quality!

South Dakota_Chevrolet_Impala_


42. Tennessee: Nissan Altima

Tennessee_Nissan_Altima_

MSRP: $24,000

Rocky Top residents love the Nissan Altima. And those driving the latest model make owners of the former even more jealous. Why? Well, for starters the new v6 engine replaces the old 4 cylinder turbo, which was a massive improvement in and of itself. Yet, its the interior that really gets green eyes flashing. Apple Carplay and Android Play come standard in base models (not so with the Camry or Accord), as well as a 7 inch dash display, 4 USB charging ports and a powered driver’s seat. Tennesseans who want to pay a tad more than base for the sport addition can check the box for an alloy wheel upgrade (about $1,000 extra) bringing extra style to a mountain getaway or NFL game day.

South Carolina_Honda_Accord


41. South Dakota: Chevrolet Impala

South Dakota_Chevrolet_Impala_

MSRP: $28,020

So the National Impala Association loves to hold their annual convention in Spearfish South Dakota. Of course, the convention aims to focus on the Impala as one of America’s venerable muscle cars. However, state residents love the newer models equally well. True, they need snow tires or chains for winter driving because newer Chevy Impala’s only come with a front wheel drive option. However, heated mirrors make for fast thaws on cold mornings. The roomy cabin and new infotainment features make getting to Spearfish enjoyable and fun. Keep reading for North Dakota Guess what their favorite car is?

Rhode Island_Honda Accord


40. South Carolina: Honda Accord

South Carolina_Honda_Accord

MSRP: $23,720

Edmunds cites the new Honda Accord as having “strong brakes.” This is good news for a state with roads that drive worse than war strewn parts of Syria or Afghanistan. Even worse, the state government is trying to turn a portion of I-95 into a toll road as you enter the state from Georgia. With potholes that are legendary, South Carolina residents need a vehicle with solid performance and exceptional brakes. And while it is not as quiet as other sedans in its class, drivers like the sporty way it handles and the abundance of safety features Honda is known for. If you can spare it, upgrade to the EX for those rear air vents and extra USB port!

Pennsylvania_Nissan_Altima_


39. Rhode Island: Honda Accord

Rhode Island_Honda Accord

MSRP: $23,720

Guess what, Rhode Island loves the Honda Accord too! They also have something in common with South Carolina… horrible roads! In fact, for several years Rhode Island ranked 50th in road quality. Recently, they moved up to 49th, hooray! Seems like the Honda Accord is the go to vehicle for your state if you have horrendous roads. Drivers love the responsive powertrain and the way it smooths out the road while absorbing large bumps and imperfections. Throw in that stellar handling we keep mentioning and you have the perfect all season vehicle!

Oregon_Honda_Accord


38. Pennsylvania: Nissan Altima

Pennsylvania_Nissan_Altima_

MSRP: $24,000

If 16 valve engines and mechanical drive trains are your thing, then join the ranks of Pennsylvanians everywhere who enjoy driving a Nissan Altima. Once again, solid performance and dependability make the Altima perfect for states with colder weather. And with gas mileage topping out at 39 mpg hwy, as well as an impressive high side horsepower of 236, the Altima is no shrinking violet. But it’s the Engine who is the real hero here. The Nissan/Infiniti VC engine adapts its power output (by adapting the compression ratio), according to your driving style. This makes the vehicle unique, just like Steeler fans.

Oklahoma_Nissan_Altima


37. Oregon: Honda Accord

Oregon_Honda_Accord

MSRP:$23,720

So it rains a lot in Oregon. It’s also mountainous and beachy (yeah was said beachy, deal with it). Because of this, Oregon residents need a vehicle suitable for the challenge so they don’t have to think about it. Instead, they can drive around with their B-12 laden coffee and focus on breaking free from the fog of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Plus, the Honda Accord is one of the top 25 cheapest vehicles to insure. Nerd Wallet ranked the Accord as number 16 with an annual insurance premium of only $1,825. That’s more money saved for anti-depressive lattes.

Ohio_Honda_Civic_Type_R_(FN2)


36. Oklahoma: Nissan Altima

Oklahoma_Nissan_Altima

MSRP: $24,000

Seems like the midwest loves the Altima! Oklahoma is no different. Well, they are different in some respects. For instance, they have an oil well located on state capitol grounds. It is known as Capitol Site No. 1. We guess that makes the Altima, State Car No. 1. And who can argue with that decision. The new Altima is about an inch lower, wider and longer than previous models. Plus, the wheel base grew up a little. Newer Altimas see an increase of 1.5 inches over previous models. State residents can cruise around in style, enjoying Nissan’s hallmark Safety 360 features, even if they are going to check out Capitol Site No. 1.

North Dakota_Chevy_Impala_


35. Ohio: Honda Civic

Ohio_Honda_Civic_Type_R_(FN2)

MSRP: $19,450

This year (2019), the Detroit News reported Honda is scaling back production of its popular Civic and Accord because consumer demand is shifting to SUVs again. However, don’t tell that to Buckeye fans. Ohio folk love the Honda Civic! In fact, many people across the US do. The Civic has ruled the subcompact/compact category for 3 decades even though it is not the smallest or cheapest. The reason? Honda engineers constantly tweak the Civic for performance and safety. Drivers love they Civic because they are the perfect affordable long term daily driver (how many people do you know who have passed their civic down to their kids?). So say it with us… O-H-I-O!

North Carolina_Honda_Accord_


34. North Dakota: Chevrolet Impala

North Dakota_Chevy_Impala_

MSRP: $28,020

Are you really surprised at this? North Dakots residents love the Impala just as much as South Dakotans. Part of this may have something to do with Larry Reuppel. He became involved with the Impala Convention and moved it to Spearfish. He also expanded the convention to showcase 1958-1969 models (previously only 1958-1964 models were allowed). The new owner moved from North Dakota to South Dakota to manage the current convention which features more than 100 cars and participants from countries like Germany and Australia. Now you know why the Impala is so popular in these two states!

New York_Honda_Accord


33. North Carolina: Honda Accord

North Carolina_Honda_Accord_

MSRP: $23,720

Do you think North Carolina folk are familiar with the Honda Accord design story? For 2018, they completely released a video recounting the history of the Accord and what made it so popular. For one, Honda always worked to meet the high expectations of consumers. To do this, they stopped relying on the language and form of traditional sedans. This, according to lead exterior Accord designer Tetsuji Morikawa. The lead interior designer for the Accord said they took inspiration for the cabin from a concert hall. The entire point was to view the car as telling a story to the consumer. From the mountains to cities like Charlotte, it seems to have worked!

New Mexico_Honda_Civic


32. New York: Honda Accord

New York_Honda_Accord

MSRP: $23,720

Speaking of concert hall inspiration, New York LOVES the Accord. They have plenty of concert halls and other venues for Honda to glean inspiration from to if need be (Carnegie Hall comes to mind). However, it is the solid performance that New Yorkers love. Maybe they have seen the online video of Honda Accord Joe who racked up more than 1 million miles on his Accord. that story alone is reason enough to own a vehicle that can take a beating from Buffalo to Niagra Falls!


31. New Mexico: Honda Civic

New Mexico_Honda_Civic

MSRP: $19,450

New Mexico loves the civic too! In a state known for Breaking Bad and fictional Chicken restaurants (Pollo Loco) it’s good to see the state’s population has more sense than the cast of characters from Breaking Bad. Seems like the price hikes of 2018 did not deter the people of New Mexico. And it wasn’t like Honda just raised prices once. Rewind the clock to 2018 and remember there were two price hikes. The first jump was right around $510. The second took that number to more than $1,300. Still though, it’s not enough to go full blown Walter White. Any decent job should give you what you need to purchase either the 4 door sedan or hatchback model.

New Jersey_Honda_Accord


To show you the list you’ve read thus far, in map-form. Here are a few graphics from years past. See how the cars we buy change over time?

New Hampshire_Honda_Civic_


30. New Jersey: Honda Accord

New Jersey_Honda_Accord

MSRP: $23,720

The popularity here should be no surprise. New Jersey is home to a USA Honda plant. The manufacturing facility is in Mount Laurel. In addition to Honda vehicles, they also manufacture Acura products. So members of the Garden State can enjoy the best of both worlds, but primarily, they love the Accord. And why not? This little car has come a long way. The first one produced had a whopping 68 horsepower (with a 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine). Also, we think of the hatchback as something new, but originally the Accord was only available as a hatchback. Today, there are more than 10.5 million scattered across the United States.

Nevada_Toyota_Camry_


29. New Hampshire: Honda Civic

New Hampshire_Honda_Civic_

MSRP: $19,450

New Hampshire folks love the Civic. And Honda does too, for good reason! You may not know this, but it was the Civic that actually saved the country from going belly up. When they began building cars in 1963, it was an uphill battle. The N600 only found success on the west coast and Honda was still widely regarded as a motorcycle manufacturer. Then, they took the N600, revamped it, and launched it as the Civic. Today, families love it for the dependability and gearheads enjoy them because they are so dang easy to modify! New Hamsphire is just one more member of the fan club!

Nebraska_Chevrolet_Impala_2005


28. Nevada: Toyota Camry

Nevada_Toyota_Camry_

MSRP: $24,095

We wonder how many LLC shell company Camrys there are in Nevada? After all, the state is famous for four things, Vegas, the mob, the grand canyon and tax free corporate entities. And with those entities come corporate cars, so it makes sense that the Camry would be employed for more than a few Bugsy Malone type operations. Even better, the 2018 Camry (gas only variant) is equipped with the same 8 speed shifter found in the Highlander, Sienna and some Lexus models as a standard feature. With all of the desert roads and highways crisscrossing Nevada, it’s not surprising to find the Camry as a favorite.

Montana_Ford_Explorer_


27. Nebraska: Chevrolet Impala

Nebraska_Chevrolet_Impala_2005

MSRP: $28,020

Meanwhile, Nebraska folk love the Impala just as much as North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Home to Warren Buffet, it’s not really surprising that the state loves such a reliable, efficient car. Other things you might not know about Nebraska include the following: It is the birthplace of Kool-Aid, they have a 6 foot statue honoring Chef Boyardee and replica of Stonehenge called Carhenge (just north of Alliance) made up of 38 old cars. Incidentally, none of them are Impalas. Nebraskans prefer to drive them instead!

Missouri_Chevy Impala


26. Montana: Ford Explorer

Montana_Ford_Explorer_

MSRP: $36,675

So the Ford Explorer has both a 2.3 liter or 3.5 liter Eco-Boost engine. The former churns out 280 horsepower, impressive for a 4 cylinder, or 365 horsepower from the v6 model. The new 202 Explorer will see a move towards RWD. Some may question the reason behind this, but the move yields an extra 6 inches of stretch for the wheelbase. Towing capacity has been improved by 66% and has more cargo space than previous models. Considered by many to be the elder statesman of SUVs, the Explorer continues to be reliable, and that’s just what the peopel of MOntana love about it!

Mississippi_Nissan_Altima


25. Missouri: Chevrolet Impala

Missouri_Chevy Impala

MSRP: $28,020

The Show Me State leans towards the Impala too! Seems like a car that ranks #4 according to U.S. News and World report in the large car category is quite popular in many states. Lending to its wild popularity are the good safety ratings given by the IIHS. That’s all it takes to get 9 states to jump all over this car. However, be forewarned, the Impala does not get stellar reviews if you do a lot of city driving. Yet, for a solid cruise around the Lake of the Ozarks, the Missourians can’t get enough!

Minnesota_Chevy_Impala


24. Mississippi: Nissan Altima

Mississippi_Nissan_Altima

MSRP: $24,000

Here was see the Altima make a showing again in a state known for Elvis and B.B. King. And while we have never thought of the Nissan Altima as bluesy or rock and roll, it could be a bit of both. The new infotainment system features premium Bose speakers. Oh yeah, and there are 9 of them cleverly dispersed throughout the cabin to give maximum listening pleasure. Throw in dual climate AC controls along with heated seats and you have a vehicle to keep up with Mississippi humidity no matter whether you are in Tupelo or Itta Bena.

Michigan_Chevrolet_Malibu


23. Minnesota: Chevrolet Impala

Minnesota_Chevy_Impala

MSRP: $28,020

Remember those 9 states we mentioned that love the Chevrolet Impala? Well, add Minnesota to the list! The home of Garrison Keillor, the Mall of America and the Minnesota Vikings also joins the list as a member of the Chevrolet Impala fan club. Again, you have to remember how solid the Impala is in cold weather. So where it lacks in features like 4 wheel drive or 8 cylinder monster engines, it excels as a faithful, dependable vehicle. Still, the 3.5 liter v6 can crank out 305 horsepower so she is certainly no flyweight!

Massachusetts_Honda Accord


22. Michigan: Chevrolet Malibu

Michigan_Chevrolet_Malibu

MSRP: $22,090

What was once a trim level for the Chevrolet Chevelle morphed into its own vehicle in 1978. So do Michigan residents love it for this fact or something else? After all, the Malibu became an instant classic in 1964 when it sold more than 200,000 right out of the gate. In addition, the Malibu has won more than 20 NASCAR titles since its production debut. Yet, we think Michigan residents love the car because it now offers a teen driver feature. Essentially, this means parents can set a pin and to control max audio levels, speed limit warnings and other monitor worthy elements (available in 2016 models on). Sorry kids, that’s the breaks!

Maryland_Honda Accord


21. Massachusetts: Honda Accord

Massachusetts_Honda Accord

MSRP: $23,720

Car and Driver has named the Accord as one of the most popular cars in America 27 times. That’s not too shabby! It’s also not surprising that the people of Massachusetts love it also. Here’s a fun fact too. Remember the guy who drove his Accord to more than a million miles? He was rewarded in 2012 with a parade and a New Accord from Honda. Not as reminiscent as the first Thanksgiving, but pretty dang close. Since its debut, the Accord continues to be one of the most beloved and reliable vehicles. For instance, the 2014 hybrid version was the first vehicle to meet the LEV3/SULEV20 emission standards, the strictest in the United States.

Maine_Ford_Focus


20. Maryland: Honda Accord

Maryland_Honda Accord

MSRP: $23,720

What? Maryland loves the Accord too? All sales point to yes. After all, what would you expect from an auto manufacturer who developed the first foreign import model to become a top seller in the US? And hey, so maybe there aren’t too many Maryland residents who own the 2014 hybrid model because it has since been discontinued. However, those who do enjoy an incredible 115 mpg! That number is simply unheard of (maybe oil companies “encouraged” them to stop production?).

Louisiana_Nissan Altima


19. Maine: Ford Focus

Maine_Ford_Focus

MSRP: $17,950

The people of Maine love the Ford Focus. The cars are gas misers (especially with the eco-boost hybrid engine), have plenty of safety features and last a really long time. However, did you know Ford came out with a drift mode with the 2016 model? The transmission uses as twinster system which means power is transferred to the rear wheels constantly via the drive train. The end result means a full 70% of the power can be transferred to the rear wheels, as well as each side! So if you see people drifting around those winding roads in Maine, you can thank to Ford Focus!

Kentucky_Toyota_Camry


18. Louisiana: Nissan Altima

Louisiana_Nissan Altima

MSRP: $24,000

Folks in Louisiana can laissez les bon temps rouler, literally, in their Altimas. Yep, seems like Cajuns and Creoles everywhere rely on the Nissan Altima to move them around when need be. Plus, the Altima helps people keep their lives simple. In 2015, the dashboard was reconfigured so all information could be fund in one place. Drivers love it because it keeps them from looking all over the place for gauges and warning lights. Also, the cabin was revamped in 2014 to give more room.

Kansas_Ford_Focus_


17. Kentucky: Toyota Camry

Kentucky_Toyota_Camry

MSRP: $24,095

Leave it to the Bluegrass state to lean toward something as dependable and reliable as the Toyota Camry. Or, maybe its the moniker itself that makes the car’s history as rich as the Kentucky Derby. Camry comes from an Anglicized version of the Japanese name “Kanmuri.’ It means crown and is consistent with Toyota’s move to name their prominent vehicles after some sort of crown (one model sold overseas is actually called the Crown. We aren’t worthy enough to have them imported stateside). Of course, we think the name fits well with titles like Triple Crown, Churchill Downs and Kentucky Derby. Excuse us now please, it’s time for a Mint Julep.

Iowa_Chevy Impala


16. Kansas: Ford Focus

Kansas_Ford_Focus_

MSRP: $17,950

Kansans love the Ford Foucs, although driving one today may seem like you aren’t in Kansas anymore. If your memory is a bit foggy, rewind the clock back to 2016. Ford launched the Focus with a new Powershift transmission. However, they made the mistake of leading the customer base to think the transmission was automatic, rather than a manual transmission that is shifted automatically. Complaints started pouring in because customers thought something was wrong with their vehicles. Talk about a PR nightmare. Luckily, Ford was able to put the Wicked Witch rumors to rest.

Indiana_Chevrolet_Malibu_Hybrid_DC


15. Iowa: Chevrolet Impala

Iowa_Chevy Impala

MSRP: $28,020

When your state is home to the most crooked street in the world according to Ripley’s Believe it or Not, you need a car that can handle it. So Iowans turn to the Chevy Impala when they need help driving down Snake Alley in the quaint little town of Burlington. Not bad for a vehicle that was originally intended to be a top of the line Chevy Bel Air. Yet, a 1959 redesign and radical body style changed everything. Today, you can find Impala’s on just about any golf course in Iowa. They happen to have more golf courses per capita than any other state!

Illinois_Toyota_Camry


14. Indiana: Chevrolet Malibu

Indiana_Chevrolet_Malibu_Hybrid_DC

MSRP: $22.090

Midwesterners love their Chevy vehicles and Indiana is no different. Travel across the state and you will notice the Chevy Malibu everywhere. Of course, most of them are front wheel drive today. What, you didn’t know the Malibu used to be a rear wheel drive classic? Yep, right up until 1997. That’s the year GM switched it over from rear wheel drive intermediate to front wheel drive. It has remained so ever since. There have been other changes though since the switch. For instance, hybrid models hit the scene in 2008 and Chevy has really placed a marketing emphasis on their infotainment systems.

Idaho_Honda_Civic


13. Illinois: Toyota Camry

Illinois_Toyota_Camry

MSRP: $24,095

You will be hard pressed to drive down in street in Chicago and not find a Camry either driving or parked somewhere nearby. In fact, every year, hundreds of thousands are sold in the US. When the Camry first made its debut in 1983, it quickly spread worldwide. Before that, it was only sold in Japan (1982). And it seems like the people of Illinois love the Camry for the same reason we all do. You can always expect value, solid engineering and impeccable craftsmanship. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the incredible 8 speed automatic transmission (new for 2018 models on) that provides out of this world power and control!

Hawaii_Toyota_Corolla


12. Idaho: Honda Civic

Idaho_Honda_Civic

MSRP: $19,450

Can you blame Idaho for not falling in love with the Honda Civic? Newer models fro m2016 on have a lot to crow about. For instance, you can lower all windows and the sunroof by hitting the key fob twice and holding it. To raise them, simply separate the fob from the key, insert the key into the door , turn twice and hold. Also, the gas tank is now cable less. All owners have to do is tap the gas tank cover to open it up. However, if your car is locked, rest assured, the cover won’t open. Its little features like these that make the Civic so popular in the US.

georgia_Accord_V6M_red_logo


11. Hawaii: Toyota Corolla

Hawaii_Toyota_Corolla

MSRP: $19,500

People living in the Aloha state happen to love one of the world’s most favorite car. The Corolla consistently ranks as one of the top cars in the world, and for good reason. For starters, Corollas get insane fuel economy, often beating the the 40mpg marker. Second, Toyota works hard to make sure the prices is competitive. Providing value is always important to the consumer. Throw in great resale value, safety and reliability to round out the appeal. It’s enough to make any skeptic a believer. You certainly won’t have any problems getting to the local Hawaiian breakfast dive for pancakes and Spam!

Florida_Toyota_Corolla_


10. Georgia: Honda Accord

georgia_Accord_V6M_red_logo

MSRP: $23,720

No matter how many innovations the Accord undergoes, it performs like a champ. that’s what Georgia folk love about it. However, the 10th generation Accord made some noteworthy changes (just like UGA did with their fixture of a coach. Too soon?). To begin with, Honda did away with the v6 and opted for a turbo charged I4. the 1.5 liter wonder churns out 192 horsepower along with 192 ft-lb of torque. But what we like most is the 2.0 liter engine comes with a 10 speed automatic. Yep, looks like the 10 speed is the new 9 speed. We can’t speak for the UGA bulldogs though. Only time will tell how well their change will work.

Delaware_Honda_Accord_


9. Florida: Toyota Corolla

Florida_Toyota_Corolla_

MSRP: $19,500

The Sunshine state loves the Toyota Corolla too. Part of this reason could be Florida consistently ranks as one of the states with the highest car insurance rates. Michigan usually comes in number one, but Florida is on the list for the same reason. Both of these states us a no fault insurance system. As such, more insurance is required to insure your vehicle. It makes sense that a vehicle with one of the highest safety and performance ratings is the favorite among residents who love to soak up the sun. The Florida state motto should be, “The Corolla, it’s not just for snowbirds.”

_Honda_Accord_


8. Delaware: Honda Accord

Delaware_Honda_Accord_

MSRP: $23,720

So it turns out the first state to ratify the United States Constitution is not the first state to love the Honda Accord. We have seen MANY other states on this list as well. However, few of them have a coastline that stretches 28 miles. When that’s the case, you need a car with superior handling and great safety features. This is helpful when traversing such a crowded state. You may be surprised to know Dela ware holds a paradoxical distinction. They are the 45th most populous state, while simultaneously being the 6th most densely populated state. Delaware’s total area is only 1,928 miles.

Colorado_Honda_Accord_


7. Connecticut: Honda Accord

_Honda_Accord_

MSRP: $23,720

Perhaps Connecticut loves the Accord for the new body style? In 2018 Honda decided to revamp the current design and go with something more along the lines of a fast back body style. While it may not look like a Mustang, it does perform like a work horse. the latter is much more preferable to people who need a sure start on a cold winter morning. Snow shows up like an unwanted holiday guest in Connecticut. And when it does, you need something like a six cylinder Accord with an Atkinson Hybrid engine to handle it!

California_Honda_Civic_


6. Colorado: Honda Accord

Colorado_Honda_Accord_

MSRP: $23,720

Colorado and their love of the Honda Accord makes sense. The new Hybrid engines (two electrical paired with a traditional gas engine) were not a Honda after thought. The batteries were placed underneath the trunk so as not to eat up precious space, and the engine configuration generates 212 horsepower with gas mileage numbers well over 40 in each category. To say this car is green is an understatement, just like saying Colorado is green would be the same thing. Colorado is so green right now. If you haven’t been lately, you should. Buy something green while you are there… like a Honda Accord.

Arkansas_Nissan_Altima_


5. California: Honda Civic

California_Honda_Civic_

Californians favor the Civic which is odd to us. In a state known for top down cruising weather, the Civic reigns supreme. Seems like there is a reason Honda makes 14 million combustion engines every year. They have to keep up with demand! Plus, they have given us so much when it comes to the automobile. For instance, did you know the world’s first four wheel drive car was the Honda Prelude? Toss that out at your next LA cocktail party and impress your friends.

Razorbacks love the Altima. It’s the state’s most popular car. Of course, the Nissan Altima is also one of the most popular used cars in the United States so it makes you wonder about the good people of Arkansas. Are they in love with the vehicle, or just trying to keep up with the likes of their former Governor turned slick Willy in terms of presentation and bravado. With new features like real-time traffic updates, voice recognition, streaming audio and Bluetooth, we can’t help but wonder.

Driving in Arizona demands a vehicle that is as tough as the climate. Temps can go well north of 100 degrees and every now and then it snows depending on where you are. This is why the Honda Civic favorite for Arizona is such a good choice, especially when you get one made after 2003. that was the first year Honda opted not to use plug in batteries for their hybrid Civics. Instead, they last the life of the vehicle! That’s good news beacuse who wants to try and find a charging station in the middle of the desert!

Wouldn’t it be funny to find out if the Ford Bronco II was the favorite vehicle of Alaskans before the Ford Explorer because the Explorer was designed to be its replacement? Yeah, we don’t know either. We do know Alaskans must love the SUV for its roomy capacity, 4 wheel drive options and dependable performance. It has been said that the Ford Explorer is the elder statesmen of SUVS, Maybe that’s why Alaskans love it. Its proven it has what it takes to hold up under extreme weather conditions and tame the Alaskan Bush!

In Alabama it doesn’t matter if you come with a banjo on your knee or not. If you forget that you left it in the trunk you can lock your car remotely! At least, if you own a 2019 model you can! Just pull up the app from your smart phone and lock your trunk with a simple touch. You can also use the same technology to start your car remotely and locate your vehicle if you forgot where you parked. We aren’t saying anything about the people of Alabama, we just want to make a point. Wait that sounds bad too. Just drive an Altima and yell Roll Tide often. There.
