Sales of midsize sedans (and a couple of their coupe namesakes) rose 4% in the United States in October 2013 despite the declines reported by America's three best-selling midsize cars. 

Toyota Camry sales slid 3%, Honda Accord volume fell 11%, and the Nissan Altima was down 12%. 

Huge year-over-year gains from the fourth-best-selling Ford Fusion, fifth-best-selling Hyundai Sonata, and sixth-best-selling Chevrolet Malibu added 18,266 sales to the midsize segment in October, however. Sales of the low-volume Mazda 6 more than doubled.


News surfaced today that Mitsubishi dealers will offer a Korean-built midsize sedan in the not-too-distant future. Galant sales rang in at 97,343 units in 2002. By 2005, Galant volume had fallen to just 33,976 units. Mitsubishi only sold 11,492 Galants in 2010. A Renault-Samsung Galant replacement won't be a Camry beater, but Mitsubishi could find healthier U.S. market share with a competitive car in a category which accounts for 31% of U.S. new car sales.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto 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 midsize cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page. The + icon has been removed from year-over-year improvements. Look instead for red font to designate year-over-year declines. We've also added prior year data, which means you'll spend less time hunting around GCBC looking for relatively recent historical data.

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.
