A new car has taken the lead in sales in the government's Cash for Clunkers program. New data from the Department of Transportation shows the Toyota Corolla has overtaken the Ford Fusion as the top-selling car in the program.

The Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry and the Honda Civic are also in the top five for sales under the cash for clunkers initiative.

Earlier this week, the Ford Fusion led sales in the reimbursement program.
