From the Ford Taurus's modest 3% downturn (valued at only four lost sales) to the Hyundai Genesis sedan's 70% drop (as Hyundai Canada prepares to turn the Hyundai Genesis into the Genesis G80), large cars tanked in September.
And with across-the-board declines came a new segment leader.
Despite its own 12% drop, the Nissan Maxima shot to the top of the class because the declines reported by top-selling rivals were worse.

Maxima sales were nevertheless down 55% compared with September 2010. September 2016 sales, meanwhile, fell to a seven-month low.

* 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.
