Toyota Camry Leads Midsize Segment in January 2015

Nissan Altima was close behind.

The Nissan Altima began 2015 strong with 26,408 units sold, but it wasn't enough to jump ahead of the reigning midsize champ, the Toyota Camry, which ended January with a sales tally of 26,763.

Rounding out the podium was the Honda Accord with 21,011 units sold last month. The Ford Fusion went home to 19,694 customers in January, which is enough for a fourth-place finish, though that's a slight drop compared to the 20,717 units sold in January 2014.

The Chrysler 200 took the number-five spot with 14,157 sold, a 30-percent jump compared to the same period last year. The 200's strong performance contributed to Chrysler's 11-percent sales increase in January. Fifth and sixth place went to the Hyundai Sonata and Chevrolet Malibu, which sold 12,363 and 11,878 units, respectively. The Kia Optima took a slight dip with its sales tally of 9,394 units, compared to 9,979 in January 2014.

In ninth place is the Volkswagen Passat with 6,305 units sold. Landing in the bottom three are the Subaru Legacy (3,881 sold), Mazda6 (3,766), and Dodge Avenger (242). As expected, the Avenger is fading away as production ended last year. The Legacy, however, was one of Subaru's best sales performers last month, with its number representing a 42-percent jump compared to January 2014.
