There are midsize nameplates that are selling more often this year than last. One, the Chrysler 200, is a discontinued car in a clear-out phase. Another, the Mazda 6, is an exceptionally low-volume car with limited potential. The two others, Hyundai’s Sonata and the Nissan Altima, are upper tier competitors that are selling more often this year than last – but last year was awful.
Canadian Sonata sales fell to a seven-year low in 2016. Canadian Altima sales fell below 10,000 units for the third consecutive year after averaging nearly 13,000 annual sales in the previous half-decade.
