Midsize Car Sales Figures In America - August 2013 YTD

2013 Subaru Legacy black
For every Crosstour and Venza sold by American Honda and Toyota USA, Subaru sells more than two Outbacks in America. Outback and Venza volume slid in August 2013 as sales of their more conventional car counterparts, the Legacy and Camry, improved on a year-over-year basis.

The key difference separating Toyota and Subaru (which is partially owned by Toyota) relates to the car dominance at Toyota. Toyota sold 44,713 Camrys in August 2013. Combined, the Venza, Highlander, and RAV4 attracted 40,019 buyers.


At Subaru, the roles are reversed. The unpopular Legacy was up 2% to 3954 sales, but Subaru sold 10,163 Outbacks and 13,163 Foresters. Indeed, Outback, Forester, Tribeca, and XV Crosstrek volume climbed to 28,220 units in August - Subaru sold 12,841 BRZs, Imprezas, and Legacys.

The Camry was America's best-selling midsize car and best-selling car overall in August 2013. No year-over-year improvement was better, percentage-wise, than that of the Mazda 6, which was up 167%, or 2657 units. (Camry sales rose by 7993 units.) With pricing that aligns it more closely with conventional midsize cars, Chevrolet sold more Volts than in any month in the model's 33-month history.

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.
