2019 U.S Midsize Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With October 2019 Data on November 1st, 2019

Top Level US Reports: By Manufacturer / By Brand / By Model / Best Sellers

The midsize car segment’s sales numbers do not look strong. The segment has struggled all year to match last year’s sales numbers and the month of October was no exception.

When you look at just the month of October, the segment is down about 6,700 units. When you look at the YTD sales numbers you’ll see that the segment is down about 89,000 units.

The sales leader for the segment was the Toyota Camry, but even it was down for both the month and YTD. The model saw sales decline by over a percentage point in the month of October and by nearly two percent YTD.

We expect the segment to continue to struggle in the coming months and into 2020. There’s no reason to assume the segment can turn things around.

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.
