Popularity of the new-shape Audi A5 continues to rocket as the German coupe looks set to have its best year ever. Though sales dropped in July over the previous month for the first time in 2017, the A5 will break the 10k mark easily next month if this trend continues.
Cheaper roadsters the MX-5 Miata and Fiat 124 Spider, which share a platform, both continue to show strong growth over 2016 despite falling sales across the Sporty Cars segment.
More Ford Mustangs left showrooms than Dodge Challengers in July, though the Challenger remains the only American Muscle car to have sold more cars in 2017 than 2016 YTD. The Camaro briefly caught up with itself in May, but has sales have since slipped and the Chevy is now over 1,000 sales behind 2016 figures.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown ^ BMW USA, not GoodCarBadCar, has chosen to combine sales figures of the 1-Series and 2-Series. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don’t know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. The BMW 6-Series has been removed from the premium list because we don’t use this space as a showcase for sedans (unless automakers release data for high-end sporting models like the Lexus ISF, as Toyota Canada does) and the 6-Series lineup now relies heavily on a sedan variant. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
