Among high-volume contenders, the worst declines were reported by the Honda Accord (down 23%, or 7944 units), Volkswagen Passat (down 29%, or 3256 units), Ford Fusion (down 12%, or 3919 units), and the Nissan Altima (down 11%, or 3928 units). 

The 200, Legacy, and 6, meanwhile, combined for a doubling of sales to 32,908 units. But that total among the improving cars was some 8000 sales fewer than the best-selling Toyota Camry’s monthly tally.

Midsize cars slid 3% in the first-quarter of 2015. The car market overall was flat.

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.
