While Accord volume dropped 12% in February and Altima sales slid 8%, the Camry jumped 14% to a three-year February high: 32,942 sales.

The Accord and Altima certainly weren’t the only intermediate cars to post meaningful declines in February, as the category dropped 3% compared with February 2014, a month in which midsize sales had tumbled 6% compared with February 2013. The Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, and Volkswagen Passat combined to lose 5331 sales last month.

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.
