The Impala is clearly not the force it was, on pure volume terms, that it was just a few years ago. GM will likely sell fewer than 120,000 Impalas by year’s end. More than 300,000 were sold in 2007. 2015 will be the fifth consecutive year of decline.

But the Impala, now a less fleet-friendly competitor in a vehicle category considered far less interesting to buyers, isn’t rare in its decline. 

Buick LaCrosse volume is down 16% this year. The Chrysler 300 is down 2%. Ford Taurus volume has tumbled 24%. Hyundai Azera sales are down 21%. The Kia Cadenza? Down 23%. The Nissan Maxima? Down 25%. The Toyota Avalon? Down 11%.

Some of those cars are older designs or in transition to a new generation. Others are new or refreshed. It matters little. Segment-wide volume is down 12% in a booming market.

* 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.
