For the year, TMS reported sales of 2,449,630 vehicles, a 2.0 percent decrease.

Toyota division posted December sales of 202,047 units, up 2.6 percent on a volume basis and 6.4 percent on a DSR basis. For the year, Toyota division reported sales of 2,118,402 vehicles, a 1.7 percent decrease.

"With another record year for the auto industry, consumers established Toyota as the number one retail brand in 2016, now five years running," said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager of the Toyota division. "Toyota division year-end results include record sales of both RAV4 and Highlander along with Camry continuing its sales leadership as the number one selling passenger car in America for the 15th consecutive year."

Lexus posted December sales of 41,182 vehicles, down 0.5 percent on a volume basis and up 3.2 percent on a DSR basis. For the year, Lexus sales of 331,228 were down 3.9 percent.

"Lexus dealers closed out 2016 with another successful December to Remember, driving Lexus sales to our second-best sales year.  While new vehicle sales were slightly down from our 2015 all-time best-ever year, the combination of new car volume and a 20-percent increase in Certified Pre-Owned sales, put more Lexus vehicles in the hands of our customers than ever before," said Lexus group vice president and general manager, Jeff Bracken. "While luxury sedan customers still represent 40 percent of our total volume, it's clear many customers have shifted to luxury utility vehicles, and we're fully ramped up to meet their needs throughout 2017."
