First-quarter volume among top-flight volume brand cars slid 13%. The Nissan Maxima, displayed in MY2016 form at the New York Auto Show last week, has predictably faced the worst decline, with sales falling by half through the first three months of 2015.
The Hyundai Genesis, which in sedan form is a perhaps the best luxury contender in the field and as a coupe is not at all a member of the category, has enjoyed the greatest year-over-yeaer increases.

Source: Automakers * Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with these volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the “brand status” issue. GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better.
