* NOW UPDATED with the Top 260 best-selling models and Top 40 brands! *

Car makers worldwide can exhale a sigh of relief: after a very slow start of 2014 (-1% in both January and February), US sales are back to a more dynamic 6% year-on-year increase in March at 1.54 million units, potentially due to the more clement weather in the 2nd half of the month. This single-mindedly brings the 1st Quarter total back into positive at 3.74 million units, up 1.4% on 2013. Moreover, the seasonally adjusted sales rate (SAAR) is back up to 16.4 million units, up from 15.3 million a year ago, same as November 2013 (also 16.4 million) and the best score in over 7 years, since February 2007 exactly.

Brand-wise, Ford, Toyota and Chevrolet lead the way and all improve by 3% on March 2013, in the case of Toyota the first year-on-year increase so far in 2014. The Nissan group at 149,136 sales (+8%) and Jeep brand at 57,983 units (+47%) both deliver their best-ever month in the US. Audi lodges its best-ever March US sales at 12,246 vehicles, its 39th consecutive month of record monthly sales, while Subaru is up 21% to 44,479 units, the brand's 28th consecutive month of year-on-year gain and 15th straight double-digit gain! Ram is up 29%, BMW up 19%, Mercedes up 12%, Lexus up 23%, Mitsubishi up 70%, Lincoln up 31% and Maserati up a staggering 342% thanks, once again, to the Ghibli.

    Lexus sold double than Audi and growing way more than double. Acura did better than Audi and yet growing more. VW in free falling just like they did in the last 12 months.
