The Honda Accord took over as America's best-selling car, and consequently America's favourite midsize car, in April 2013. Year-over-year, sales of the Accord, Toyota Camry, Chrysler 200, Volkswagen Passat, Subaru Legacy, Toyota Prius, Hyundai Sonata, and Mazda 6 declined.

Also, Suzuki Kizashi sales declined. Suzuki USA appears to be dead and gone, for all intents and purposes.

You'll notice one big change in the tables below. There's an extra one this month, as anything that could remotely be considered a midsize rival for the Toyota Camry is in one table, and then cars are broken down three different ways. You can see everything together in the accompanying chart, as well.


Biggest year-over-year improvement: Nissan Leaf, up 424%. Volkswagen CC, up 46%. Nissan Altima, up 35%.

Worst year-over-year decline: Honda Insight, down 47%. Buick Regal, down 38%.

Best-selling midsize car: Honda Accord, 1828 units ahead of Toyota Camry.

Best-selling American brand midsize car: Ford Fusion, 4988 units ahead of Chevrolet Malibu.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank U.S. midsize cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
