2013 Nissan Altima Could Become Best-Selling Sedan by End of 2012
Cars.com analysts usually have a pretty good idea about what's happening currently and what will happen in the future of the auto industry, and now they've made a very interesting prediction for the 2013 Nissan Altima. The company predicts that the new Altima will see significant sales by the end of 2012 and could even become the best-selling sedan in the U.S. This information was determined by historical sales data, the competitive landscape, and an analysis of marketplace trends. Overall, the company predicts a 39 percent increase in Altima sales vs. the 2011 sales year.
Kelsey Mays, Automotive Analyst for Cars.com, explains, "Overall, with the improving economy, we expect 2012 new car sales to jump roughly 15 percent over 2011. Taking the redesign of the Altima into account, we'd expect the 2013 Altima to outsell its 2012 predecessor by 39 percent by year's end, 24 percentage points above our expected market growth." Mays also comments that the Altima could easily take the title of best-selling sedan from the Toyota Camry, which has held the title for over a decade. She explains, "Last year Nissan sold 268,981 Altimas, while Toyota moved 308,510 Camrys. But, through March, Nissan had closed the gap for 2012 to fewer than 10,000. Even though the Camry was redesigned for 2012, a mixture of marketing push and momentum for the Altima could lift it above the Camry."2
