There were drops overall for the US passenger car market, in June 2017, with models like the Hyundai Elantra taking a hit despite being well ahead of the numbers posted this time last year. This recent drop in sales of the Elantra may be related to a recall back in March to fix a steering issue.
Of the top 10 passenger cars, only the Elantra and Chevrolet’s Cruze managed to post growth in year-to-date figures over where they were by June 2016, with the latter shifting an impressive 21.3% more cars than this time last year.
Subaru remains strong with their Impreza in the USA, with sales jumping forward almost 30% year-on-year compared with last June’s figures. This may be down to renewed interest in the brand after it announced it was shifting production to the States at the start of 2017, as well as the recent announcement of their performance-focused WRX STi models.
Reminder: these are 2017 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by February volume by clicking the February 2017 column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
