After exploring the US Top 260 All-models and Top 30 brands rankings for March, let’s go through a bit of a year-to-date update now that the First Quarter of 2013 is complete. Overall, the US market is up a very solid 6% on 2012 to 3,688,662 registrations over the period, and the Top two best-sellers (both pick-up trucks) are in exceptional shape: the Ford F-Series progresses by 17% to 168,843 sales while the Chevrolet Silverado is up 22% to 116,649 units. The Toyota Camry is in difficulty: down 4% to just over 100,000 sales with the Honda Accord starting to be really threatening, up a mammoth 45% to 88,427 units.

Ford Escape USA March 2013Ford Escape

Two models within the Top 10 break their all-time Quarter volume records over the period and they are both Fords: the Fusion is up a fantastic 26% year-on-year to #7 and 80,558 sales, breaking the 30,000 monthly unit mark for the first time in March. The Ford Escape is for its part up 24% to #9 and a best-ever 72,943 units. Notice also the Ford Explorer up 45% to #17 with 48,649 sales, the Toyota Tacoma up 23% to #22 and the Dodge Avenger up 48% to #31.

Subaru XV Crosstrek USA March 2013Subaru XV Crosstrek

The best-performing all-new model over the period is the Dodge Dart, stopping just short of the Top 50 at #51 with 22,965 units, still way lower than Fiat-Chrysler would have wanted it to be. The Dart is one of only 2 newcomers in the Top 100 along with the Subaru XV Crosstrek at #95 with 10,710 sales. Notice also the Nissan Pathfinder up 172% to #53, the Mazda CX-5 up 347% to #63 and the Buick Verano up 129% to #88.

Mini Paceman USA March 2013Mini Paceman

Further down, the Cadillac ATS lands at #101 with 9,750 units, the Ford C-Max at #102 and 9,677 sales, the Chevrolet Spark at #110, Cadillac XTS at #124, Acura ILX at #134, BMW X1 at #137, Buick Encore at #143, Scion FR-S at #147, Subaru BRZ at #198, Acura RLX at #244, Mini Paceman at #246 and Nissan NV200 at #252.
