New Report: Top 15 Cars With Greatest Slowdown in Sales


The coronavirus pandemic has caused a slowdown in vehicle sales. In fact, a new report from the car research site shows that the slowdown is affecting some models more than others.

“Overall car sales have plummeted as a result of stay-at-home orders and the economic downturn,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly. “But for those fortunate enough to be able to make a car purchase, now is an opportune time as dealers increasingly need to move inventory, and these slow-selling models could present great deals.”

The report shows models with the largest drop in sales within the month of being listed. In essence, there are a few car models that are more likely to give you a greater opportunity to negotiate a cheaper price on a used car.

To come up with the report, iSeeCars analyzed more than 1.8 million used vehicles in February and March of this year. Here are some key findings:

  • The automaker with the most used vehicles on the list is Honda, with five models
  • Led by the RAV4 Hybrid, three of the top eight vehicles are Toyota SUVs
