Between the Azera, Genesis sedan, Genesis Coupe, and Cadenza, Hyundai-Kia's contribution to this category was worth 5522 units in August. Kia has sold 4305 Cadenzas over the last three months, a period in which sales of its Hyundai Azera twin totalled 2639. Azera sales have fallen in each of the last four months, which just happen to be the first full months of Cadenza availability.

Challenged though they may be by import brands, large cars from mainstream brands are still the category's top sellers: five of the top six in August, including the four leaders.

As for potential premium brand competitors, Lexus sold 7628 ES sedans in August (up 1%), Lincoln MKZ sales rose 10% to 3652, Cadillac XTS sales rose 64% to 3533, and Acura sold 2227 TLs (down 30%). Volkswagen also sold 1693 CCs, down 19%.
