Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

Sales of passenger cars fell 12.2% year-on-year in February, with traditional passenger cars making up 32.3% of all vehicles sold last month.

That market share percentage is a further drop on February 2017’s 36% chunk of the market, itself down from 40.9% in 2016.

The segment-leading Toyota Camry took the fight to its SUV cousin, the RAV4 in February, making the top five of all vehicle sales for the month with impressive 12.2% gains – a 24.4% swing when compared with the overall passenger car market’s drop.

For the next vehicle to post growth year-on-year, we have to look to the Nissan Sentra in sixth. As the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Altima and Honda Accord all saw sales tumble on last February’s results, with their year-to-date volume telling a similar tail.

The Mercedes-Benz E- and CLS-Class as well as the Infiniti Q50 saw impressive increases in sales as premium sedans, while the Alfa Romeo Giulia once again stands out as a niche passenger car doubling its sales year-on-year.
