The Rogue Falls From Glory… To Fifth Place
April provided quite the shakeup within the top ten. It seems those 2019 Toyota Rav4s have really started to move at the dealership. Not only is the Rav4 once again the sales leader, it is up 10.1% compared to April of 2018.
The car that previously took up that number one spot, the Nissan Rogue, fell all the way down to fifth place, behind the Camry, Civic and CR-V. Despite losing ground to it’s class competitors, Rogue sales are up 3.5% compared to April 2018. Keep in mind here that the Rogue and Rogue Sport are listed under the same sales figure. Nissan does not disclose what percentage of Rogue sales are the Rogue Sport.
The rest of this is relatively straight forward. However, the number ten spot has a surprising entry. The Hyundai Elantra has broken into the top ten this month, knocking the Nissan Altima out of this chart. This is largely due to an 18.1% increase in sales compared to April of 2018. Perhaps the recently refreshed model has driven sales for Hyundai.
