Midsize Car Sales Figures In America - September 2013 YTD

2014 Mazda 6 red
Mazda 6 sales, rising fast in the United States, are rising from awfully low totals one year ago. Compared with 2004, Mazda 6 sales were down 53% to a new low in 2012.

So yes, Mazda 6 sales are better this year than last year. In nine months, Mazda USA has almost sold as many 6 sedans as the company did in all of 2012. Yet the 6 continues to be a very low-volume player in a very high-volume segment.

For every 6 which Mazda sold in September, Volkswagen sold 2.5 Passats. Need more perspective? For every Passat sold by Volkswagen, Ford sold 2.5 Fusions. And for every Fusion sold by Ford last month, Toyota sold 1.6 Camrys. 


The 6 was America's eleventh-best-selling midsize car in September 2013. The Toyota Prius and Subaru Outback also outsold the 6. Only 14 out of every 100 Mazdas sold last month were 6 sedans. 

Could Mazda's (delayed) diesel make the 6 a mainstream midsize sedan? It'll certainly make the 6 an even better car (if and when it eventually arrives), but no, a 6 diesel won't be common in the United States.

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.
