Minivan sales declined 9% in the United States in September 2016, a slide caused by all but two members of the American minivan fleet.
Although the all-new Chrysler Pacifica surged to within 97 sales of leading the minivan sector in September, total Fiat Chrysler Automobiles minivan volume fell 4%. Yet because rivals declined even more harshly, FCA’s share of the minivan market grew to 46% from 44% in September 2015.
The Toyota Sienna, 2015’s best-selling individual minivan nameplate, tumbled 12%, year-over-year, in September 2016. But the Sienna was nevertheless the top-selling MPV in America last month.

The Honda Odyssey ranked third, only 315 sales abaft. Kia’s Sedona was the only van on sale at this stage of 2015 to report more sales in September 2016 than in September 2015: 12 more.
With 39,818 total sales, September 2016 was the lowest-volume month for U.S. minivan sales volume since January.
The Mazda 5’s disappearance doesn’t help. Only three were sold last month as the 5 rapidly approaches complete unavailability.
