US – Midsize Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The midsize car segment has had a rough go of it this recently. The month of June saw roughly 25,000 fewer sales in 2019 than this month last year. When you look YTD, you’ll notice that the year has been an especially rough one for midsize cars. The segment is down roughly 83,000 units so far this year when compared with last year.

Only eight of the models on sale actually managed to escape the month without seeing declines in sales. There were only six models that saw sales not decrease YTD.

Leading the pack in terms of sales volume was the Toyota Camry. The model managed to see sales rise by about two percent for the month of June. YTD, however, it was down about two percentage points.

The second and third places were taken by the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima respectively. Neither car managed to see a sales increase, though for the month or YTD.

The midsize car segment has been trending down for some time. This is expected to continue as the rest of the year moves forward.

Below you will find sales figures for all midsize cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.
