Midsize car sales in the U.S. looked pretty terrible in the month of December. The 2019 sales numbers looked almost equally bad. Midsize cars have struggled for years, and now the segment is seriously struggling.
When you look at just the December sales, the segment was down by 29,000. In terms of 2019 sales numbers, the segment was down by 161,000 sales.
The Toyota Camry led the pack in terms of sales volume. However, the car saw sales drop in December and for the entire year of 2019. The Honda Accord came in second place but it too saw sales drop in both the month of December and the entire year of 2019. The Nissan Altima came in third. It saw sales increases for both the month of December and the whole year of 2019.
