Topped by the perennially class-leading Toyota Camry, midsize volume is own by a fifth this year, sliding nearly 144,000 sales over the span of only four months. Sure, the market has turned against cars, but not nearly as quickly as the market has turned away from midsize cars.

At this time last year, midsize cars accounted for 31.6% of U.S. passenger car volume. In early 2017, midsize cars form only 28.9% of the passenger car market. 

Remove midsize cars from the equation and passenger car volume isn't down 12.0% this year but rather just 8.4%. In fact, the losses accrued by the non-midsize car market– 133,000 sales — isn't as bad as the 144,000-unit loss suffered by just the midsize market.

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. This explains why you'll see the Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the  All Vehicle Rankings posts.
