The Chrysler 300 slipped 2% from its April 2015 total to 865 sales in April 2016. Based on recent history, more than half of the 300s sold in Canada in the 2016 calendar year will be sold this quarter.

Dodge Charger volume tumbled 15% to 666 units. Together, the 300 and Charger easily outsold the Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Impala – and Ford Taurus – by 639 units in April.

Regardless of the volume achieved by respective members of the segment and the order in which they fall, any year-over-year recovery in the category masks the fact that these vehicles simply don't attract the level of attention they did even a short time ago. 

Compared with the first four months of 2013, sales are down 18%.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes - Hyundai USA doesn't yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe - the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
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.
