Yet the declines at General Motors, Chrysler, Kia, Nissan, Subaru, and Volkswagen were not overcome by the gains of America’s favourite cars. Toyota added 4794 Camry sales; Chrysler lost 5015 200 sales as the new 2015 200 slowly takes hold. 

Honda Accord sales increased by 652 units; Kia Optima sales decreased by 733 units. 

Hyundai Sonata volume jumped by 5741 units as Hyundai clears inventory of the outgoing model and begins to market the new 2015 Sonata. But Volkswagen Passat volume slid by 3652 units and Chevrolet Malibu sales fell 24%, a loss of 5151 units.

The big picture? In an overall car market that’s up one-tenth of one percentage point, according to Automotive News, conventional midsize cars are down 2.9% through the first six months of 2014. The market for exclusively hybrid or electric cars in a not dissimilar price bracket – Volt, Prius, Leaf, etc. – is down 13%.

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.
