US – Midsize Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The midsize car segment in the U.S. is having a seriously tough year so far this year. The segment is down roughly 71,000 units so far this year. When you look just at the month of July the segment is down about 16,000 units.

Only five models actually saw sales increase for the month of July. Only four models saw sales increase YTD. The VW Arteon didn’t see either because it’s a new model. It’s off to somewhat of a slow start.

We would fully expect the coming months to show similar or even worse results for mid-size cars. The segment has been suffering for years, and there no reason that it would see a turnaround anytime soon. It will be interesting to see how some of these models survive moving forward.

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

We will report July 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Thursday, August 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
