The overall segment produced this decrease because of both the segment leaders and the segment's basement dwellers. Sales of the Hyundai Azera tumbled 45%. The Azera has not posted a year-over-year increase in any of 2014's first seven months. 

Kia Cadenza volume, meanwhile, slid 64% to just 587 units, the Cadenza's lowest monthly total since May of last year, its first full month of availability.

Though not to the same extent, the mid-pack Ford Taurus sales declined as well, falling 649 units, or 9%. Included in the Taurus's total are 1040 Police Interceptor sedan sales. Non-civilian Taurus volume rose 15% in July. 

Combined, Chrysler and Dodge sold 9465 300s and Chargers. With 9636 Impala sales, Chevrolet reported the lowest Impala volume since October 2012 and the first four-digit sales month since December 2012.

* Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with these volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the "brand status" issue.
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. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
