Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

The Sentra enjoyed its fifth consecutive month of growth in October, with the sedan posting growth at three times the rate of the Nissan brand – up 10.2% on the equivalent month last year.

Sales of Passenger Cars plummeted by over 43,000 units this October vs last, with year-to-date sales of Passenger Cars now a full 600,000 behind the same point in 2016.

Hyundai will be hoping for a turnaround with its 2018 Sonata, as its sales in October 2017 were cut in half compared with October 2016’s sales.

In the premium end of the passenger car segment, the BMW 5-Series posted a very strong month with 132% year-on-year growth in the face of a 3.4% drop for the BMW brand.

    many car sales down in my opinion because designs exterior and interior are not consumer compatible. weird designs and small cabins. also prices too high with add ons. SUVs are a better deal in practical ways. expect lower car sales in ’18. of note; ’18 Camry. great engineering, poor design. and what about a practical front bumper? pity.
