NOTE: In an effort to make the monthly model tables as informative as possible, we will continue to update them over the next few months. As such, let us know what you think of the new table, and suggest any way you think the tables could be improved further.
After a tumultuous September things evened out somewhat in the Top 10, with Ram Pickup once again outselling the Chevrolet Silverado (according to our estimates), although Honda sedans continued to lose sales at a double-digit rate
The Highlander and Tacoma continue to shine for Toyota, with double-digit sales growth, making up for the poor performance of the outgoing Corolla (sales down 11.9%)
Sales of the fifth-generation Subaru Forester took off, boosting month-on-moth sales by 19%, but clearly came at the expense of the Outback, which saw its sales fall by almost 27%, making for the model’s lowest ranking in over a year
Although the new Nissan Altima went on sale the model still registered a 25% sales drop, for a YTD sales decline of over 17%
The new Jeep Wrangler registered its first sales decline since it went on sale in the spring
Sales of the new Volkswagen Jetta have only been a small improvement over what the old model managed this time of the year, boding ill for the model’s long-term prospects
The new Acura RDX is proving quite the hit for the carmaker, coming within 100 units of outselling the segment-leading Audi Q5
Ford Fiesta recorded a remarkable 66% rise in sales, putting the model back into the black for the year, though the boost clearly came at the expense of big-brother Focus, whose sales sank to a 4-year low, leading to the model being almost outsold by the Mustang!
Customers seem to be abandoning the GMC Acadia (sales down more than half), suggesting GMC’s decision to scale down the second-generation model may not have been the right way to go
By contrast, the “normalized” second-generation Infiniti QX50 seems to be going down with customers much better than the original model (sales up over 140%), although this means the model still sold only half as well as the Q5
The still-fresh Nissan Maxima experienced a sales collapse of almost two-thirds, dragging the model’s YTD sales down to almost 40% below 2017 levels
Honda Fit saw its sales collapse by over 70%, while the once-popular Genesis G80 (nee Hyundai Genesis) saw its sales fall by almost 85%!
New model highlights
The new Genesis G70 managed a mere 51 units in its first full month on the market, which combined with the travails of the G80 suggests dark times ahead for Hyundai’s wannabe new brand
Despite falling from the lofty heights reached this summer, sales of the new BMW X2 still topped those of the Volvo XC40 and, in particular, the Jaguar E-Pace
