Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/3/2014 Erick Ayapana

The Nissan Altima was the only midsize sedan to crest the 30,000 sales mark in February, with a total of 30,849 units sold. The Toyota Camry, which had a strong start to 2014, placed second last month with 28,998 sold, while the Honda Accord rounds off the podium with 24,622 vehicles going home to customers.

That means the Ford Fusion falls to fourth place with 23,898 cars sold. There’s a relatively big gap between the fourth and fifth place, which went to the Chevrolet Malibu and its tally of 17,448 units. Chrysler sold 12,046 copies of its 200 sedan, which was the only passenger car in the Chrysler Group to report an uptick in sales last month. Meanwhile, The Kia Optima lands in seventh place with 11,226 units sold, while the Hyundai Sonata was close behind with 11,190 sold.

We recently reported that the Dodge Avenger contains the most American and Canadian-sourced parts of all passenger cars sold in the U.S. That said, the Dodge sold 8189 Avengers in February for an ninth-place finish, while tenth is occupied by the Volkswagen Passat (6997 units sold). Eleventh and twelfth place go to the Mazda6 and Subaru Legacy with 3945 and 2575 units sold, respectively.
