Large Car Sales In America - May 2015 YTD

2014 Kia Cadenza fishing boat
Chevrolet Impala volume declined in the United States in May 2015, the fifth consecutive year-over-year decline for America's top-selling full-size car. 

The Impala's 14% drop wasn't as bad as the pace set by its overall segment. Every Impala rival – both direct and indirect – posted declining U.S. sales volume in May.

* 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.
