GCBC's Most Popular Auto Sales Figures - September 2014

2014 Audi A3 sedan
No vehicle-specific sales tracking page at GoodCarBadCar generated more attraction in September 2014 than the Audi A3's. Over the span of the last eight months, Audi USA has sold more A3 sedans than any annual total ever achieved by its predecessor, the A3 hatchback. 

In this post you'll also find the most commonly read August 2014-related sales articles at GCBC over the last month and the most frequently viewed GCBC Driven reviews, as well. No review was read more often than our take on the new Subaru Outback. Readers check out the complete monthly U.S. auto brand sales results more often than any other article.

According to Google Analytics, 60% of GCBC's readers are located in the United States, another 17% from Canada, and another 10% from Europe.

Automobile manufacturers will begin reporting their September 2014 and year-to-date U.S. and Canadian sales figures on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. GoodCarBadCar will be updated throughout the day with brand results from automakers competing in the United States and Canada. Later on Wednesday, U.S. September best seller lists for cars and trucks and SUVs will be published, as well.

As always, sales figures for all manufacturers, makes, and models will be updated in GCBC's free searchable database of historical monthly and yearly sales data. For non-mobile users (or mobile users who have opted to view the full site by selecting that option at the bottom of the page), you can also select a vehicle, a brand, a manufacturer, or total industry figures in a dropdown menu near the top right of this page. The in-depth breakdown of September 2014 new vehicle sales begins in earnest straightaway at the beginning of October.

    Where is the Genesis Coupe in this? You include cheaper and slower cars like the BRZ, but not the sportier and more luxury Genesis Coupe?

  2. Unfortunately, Hyundai USA doesn't isolate Genesis Coupe and Genesis sedan sales figures.

  3. How does 'sporty hatchback' list include Fiat 500 and Hyundai Veloster but not Honda CR-Z?

  4. These are just generalizations. The CR-Z is a hybrid two-seater, whereas the other cars are very much more conventional small cars that cross boundaries. The CR-Z is unlikely to be cross-shopped with a conventional subcompact, the Veloster - with a semi-useable rear seat - may be.

  5. It must be a challenge to compile these lists in the day and age of car manufacturers sitting on the fence between conventional car classes. Fare enough: the CR-Z is a two-seater. But does it belong with other hybrids? Based on space and hybrid functionality alone, probably not (only Smart ForTwo comes to mind). Neither can the little Honda be pooled together with the likes of Mazda MX-5 or Scion FR-S as it is nowhere near as sporty. If I were to pick a group to measure the two-door Japanese hatch against, it would be the sporty hatchback one from the post above based on price, versatility, consumption and driving characteristics.

  6. Understandable. This is why we throw all these wildly disparate cars into one post, and one chart. As the fine print above says, "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. This explains why you'll see the Audi A5 here and with luxury cars, because readers have wanted it both ways."

  7. As an avid reader of this website I appreciate the effort you and the whole GCBC team put into maintaining it and publishing current content, Tim. Keep up the good work! I look very much forward to seeing the year-end posts and figures.
