With the near disappearance of Kia’s Sedona and the severely declining sales of 2012’s best-selling minivan, America’s minivan market slid 6.9% in January 2013. It wasn’t just the Grand Caravan. The Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, Nissan Quest, and Volkswagen Routan also reported year-over-year volume declines.
This made way for the Toyota Sienna to end the month as January’s most popular minivan. The Swagger Wagon beat the Odyssey by more than 1000 units. And the most popular Chrysler minivan was, in fact, the Chrysler brand’s minivan. Town & Country sales rose 16% compared with January 2012.
Nevertheless, while America’s new vehicle market climbed 14% to 1.04 million units in January, the minivan market fell by 2192 sales to 29,493, equal to 2.8% of the overall market, down from 3.5% at this time last year.
