Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

Passenger cars were hit the hardest in what was a flat month across the US auto market.

The best-selling car in America – the Toyota Camry – saw sales fall by 18.65% year-on-year in August, slightly ahead of a wider shift across the passenger car models detailed below.

For the models below, the gap to August 2017’s total sales was 16.2%.

While on GCBC we don’t report estimates for GM’s sales figures in between their official quarterly reports, a rolling back of incentive spending across their brands is thought to have resulted in a drop in retail sales.

Bucking the backslide trend in sales in August were a few compacts – the Subaru Impreza family and Hyndat Elantra among them – the Kia Optima and Nissan Altima in the mid size segment, and the Ford Mustang, sales of which shot up 35.27% year-on-year to put it within less than 1% of its year-to-date total to August 2017.
