The Chevrolet Impala took a 48% dive, but that wasn't even the worst drop in the segment. The dying Hyundai Genesis tumbled 71%, the Kia Cadenza (awaiting a freshening for 2017) fell 72%. 

From the Buick LaCrosse, which will also be all new for 2017, to the fresh Nissan Maxima and aging Ford Taurus and FCA partners (including the top-selling Dodge Charger) and Toyota Avalon, almost everything was down.

Granted, the lowest-volume, high-performance Chevrolet SS reported its second-best month ever, rising 189% year-over-year. And the Hyundai Azera, on its way to the great parking lot in the sky, jumped 48% as Hyundai clears out remaining examples.

* 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.
