Camry volume was 55% stronger than the sales of its next-best-selling rival, the deeply-discounted Chrysler 200.

But last year’s sales leader, the Ford Fusion, tumbled 25%. Honda Accord sales slid 17%. The Kia Optima and Volkswagen Passat likewise reported big declines. And while sales of the second-ranked 200 rose 5%, total Chrysler Group/FCA volume slid 17%.

Midsize cars accounted for nearly 14% of all U.S. new vehicle sales in January. In Canada, that figure falls to 5.4%.

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.
