2010 Auto Sales

SUZUKI -38%
Suzuki had an awful year in 2010, but December at least provided a ray of hope, in the form of a 40 percent increase over the previous December.

Winner
Kizashi, it's selling at twice the pace of the Forenza/Reno but needs to do better still if Suzuki is to stay viable

Losers
Grand Vitara -41%
Equator -35%

VOLVO -12%
The uncertainty surrounding Volvo's sale to the Chinese surely put a damper on the brand's sales here. We'll see if Geely, and the new S60, can reverse the slide.

Winner
XC60 +30%

Losers
S40 -29%
V50 -20%
C70 -16%
C30 -8%
XC90 -6%

SAAB -44%
Remember that Saab was all but shut down for the first half of the year, and the GM-based 9-7X previously accounted for roughly one-third of Saab's volume. The new 9-5 is here, and a wagon is due this spring, but there's still a long road ahead.
