MSNBC has released a list of the best and worst selling cars of 2007. There weren’t many surprises with the Ford F-Series topping the list once again, and the Camry making an appearance at third. The bottom of the list was dominated by luxury cars such as the Porsche Boxster, Jaguar S-Type and X-Type and the Audi A8 and S8.

Experts speculated that the downward slump for luxury cars could be attributed to the housing slump as well as high fuel prices which are causing consumers to be more wary of spending money on luxury goods. Even Ford’s F-Series, while maintaining top spot, was still dropping in terms of the amount of units sold compared to last year.

In fact, nearly all segments of vehicles fell this year, including luxury cars and pickups. The only segment that seemed to experience any success was the burgeoning crossover segment, or CUV, which experienced a 24% growth in sales over last year.

This trend reveals how consumers are remaining wary of buying gas guzzlers but still want the utility of an SUV and are thus turning to the crossover market for an answer. Honda’s CR-V crossover was able to take advantage of this trend and featured as one of the year’s top sellers.

Unfortunately for American automakers, the ‘Big Three’ of Ford, GM and Chrysler were down 7.5 percent in sales this year, a slide the companies seem to be facing in most segments. Experts suggest the reason is due to consumer perception of low quality and reliability in American makes compared to their international competitors - this despite most quality surveys suggesting that U.S. automakers are now on-par with their foreign counterparts.
