Not unpredictably, U.S. minivan sales fell 7% in December 2013; 4% over the course of 2013.
Minivans generated just 3.4% of the U.S. new vehicle market’s 2013 volume, down from 3.8% in 2012.

The best-selling minivan in America in 2013 was the Honda Odyssey, as it was in December.
But the Odyssey only attracted 24.2% of all minivan buyers – Chrysler’s Dodge Grand Caravan and Town & Country twins owned 46.3% of the minivan market.
However, the Odyssey’s figure was up from 22.7% in 2012, and the Chrysler duo’s market share tally grew from 45.6% a year ago.
The big four quarter – Odyssey, DGC, CTC, and Toyota Sienna – account for virtually all of the minivan market in America, leaving just 6.8% of buyers for the Kia Sedona, Mazda 5, Nissan Quest, and the now-defunct Volkswagen Routan.
