The Chevrolet Impala led the category with nearly 11,000 sales, but that represented a 21% year-over-year decline. The Dodge Charger’s 12% gain was most momentous, adding up to 973 additional sales compared with the same period last year.

The even more luxury-minded Hyundai Genesis (along with the Genesis Coupe) climbed 40%, or 895 units.

But decreased volume was the order of the month, just as it was through the first one-third of 2015. The Buick LaCrosse, Chrysler 300, Ford Taurus, Kia Cadenza, Nissan Maxima, and Toyota Avalon all saw their U.S. sales plunge last month.

* Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with these volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the “brand status” issue.
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. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
