2023 Best Selling Midsize Cars In the United States (All Models Ranked)

The midsize car segment in the US has been declining in recent years, but it remains an important part of the automotive market. In 2021, midsize cars accounted for just 11.4% of new vehicle sales in the US, down from 13.3% in 2016. There are a number of factors that have contributed to the decline of the midsize car segment. One factor is the rising cost of fuel. As fuel prices have increased, consumers have become more interested in vehicles that get better gas mileage. Midsize cars tend to get lower gas mileage than SUVs and trucks. Another factor that has contributed to the decline of the midsize car segment is the growing popularity of SUVs and crossovers. SUVs and crossovers offer more space and versatility than midsize cars, and they are also more stylish. Additionally, many automakers have discontinued their midsize car models in recent years.
