These are exceedingly low-volume cars. Even collectively, this fleet-friendly Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger-led category has produced only 1940 sales so far this year. Sure, that’s 16%, or 264 units, more than the segment managed one year ago. But it’s 9% lower than the total achieved by the same cars during the first two months of 2015, and it’s an inconsequential number, regardless.
1940 sales, in two months? That’s what the Honda Civic, on its own, managed over the last two weeks.

1708 C-Classes have been sold already this year.

For Canadian purposes – Hyundai USA doesn’t yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe – the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
