Accord sales improved, as well, and with further gains from top sellers like the Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima, the midsize category was able to overcome big losses from the Chevrolet Malibu, defunct Dodge Avenger, disappointing new Hyundai Sonata, and the Volkswagen Passat to rise a little less than 1% in October. 

U.S. midsize car sales are basically level through the first ten months of 2014. The Camry, Accord, and Altima own 47.8% of the category as it’s displayed here, up from 45.3% through the first ten months of 2014. 

On the other hand, the Chevrolet Malibu, Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima, and Volkswagen’s Passat have seen their collective share of the market fall to 33.8% from 37.5% during the first ten months of 2013.

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 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.

    Since when was Mini Cooper's category renamed "WARM Hatches". Lol.

  • Rarely are any of those cars equipped with enough pace to be considered Hot Hatches.
