Midsize Car Sales In America – July 2017


 

There were drops across the board in the US Midsize Car market in July 2017, though the market managed to recover slightly when compared with figures for this time last year.

All vehicles in the Midsize segment sold less than the equivalent month in 2016, with the anomalous exception of the Dodge Avenger.

In the Electric & Hybrid segment, sales of the all-electric Nissan Leaf fell after a bumper June. A new model is due to be unveiled in September, so we may see renewed interest in the eco-friendly hatchback as dealers capitalise on the hype.

Sales of the Hyundai Ioniq fell for the second month in a row after an early high point in May. In July, the company claimed it underestimated demand of their eco-offering, and that slowing sales are as a result of simply not having enough Ioniqs to keep up with its customers.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.

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.
