Big gains produced by the Toyota Camry, Canada’s best-selling midsize car in early 2015, in January and February were not fully counteracted by a 15% March decline. The Camry didn’t lead midsize cars last month; that crown was taken back by the Ford Fusion, which led the category in each of the last two calendar years.

The Camry’s not the only midsize car on the up-and-up in the first one-quarter of 2015. The Chevrolet Malibu, Chrysler 200, Hyundai Sonata, and Subaru Legacy have all reported major improvements compared with 2014 Q1. 

Numerous others, however, are sliding sharply, from the aforementioned Fusion to the Honda Accord, Kia Optima, Mazda 6, and Volkswagen Passat.

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.
