Among the blue bunch, the competitive set typically called subcompacts, the Nissan Versa saw off a hard-charging Ford Fiesta to remain victorious in March. Versa sales dropped 19.4%, however, and are down 3.2% year-to-date. At this point in 2010, Ford wasn’t selling the Fiesta. But Fiesta sales did rise 56.1% from February in a market that grew only 17%.
The midsize car segment, though clearly the domain of Honda’s Accord, the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Chevrolet Malibu, and even the Toyota Prius, isn’t immune to the wiles of the Subaru Outback. Sales of the Subaru SUVesque Legacyish wagon jumped from 7951 in February to 10,498 in March. This represents a 37.8% year-over-year bump. Moreover, the Legacy sedan was up 27.6%, adding 4450 to Subaru’s total.
Just how hot was the Honda Accord in March? Combined sales of the Buick LaCrosse, Buick Lucerne, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Ford Taurus, Hyundai Azera, Nissan Maxima, and Toyota Avalon totalled 33,461 last month, 155 less than the total put up by the Accord. See it all in the Graphs below.
