Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 4/1/2014 Erick Ayapana

The Toyota Camrytook a commanding lead in the midsize sales race last month with 41,953 units sold. The Nissan Altima, which was the top-seller in February, placed second with 35,921 sold, followed by the Honda Accord that found its way home to 33,962 units. The March rankings also match the tally for the first quarter of 2014, with Camry sales totaling 94,283 units.

Trailing the Accord by around 1000 units was the fourth-place Ford Fusion (32,963 sold), followed by the Hyundai Sonata that made a significant jump in the rankings with 19,248 units sold (more than 8000 cars more compared to February). The Chevrolet Malibu dropped a few spots with 18,866 units sold, while the Kia Optima saw a relatively big month-over-month gain, but remained in seventh place with 16,310 cars going home to customers.

The Volkswagen Passat had its best March ever with a sales total of 11,050, while the Dodge Avenger sales dropped a bit at 8756 units sold for a ninth-place finish. With 7531 units sold, the Chrysler 200 also saw a decrease in sales, though the all-new model goes on sale soon and should reverse that trend. And rounding off the bottom two are the Mazda6 and Subaru Legacy with 5730 and 3234 units sold, respectively.
