Two words: sports cars. This vehicle category was hot last month, with two newly launched models topping the list of May’s quickest-selling cars, according to Edmunds.com data.
Leading the pack is the Subaru BRZ, which took just four days to sell. This figure is all the more impressive when you consider that, on average, it took 53 days for new vehicles to find homes last month. With its fun-to-drive disposition and affordable price tag, this eager little coupe was crafted with the everyman enthusiast in mind.
In runner-up position is the equally appealing Scion FR-S, which left dealer lots in just five days. The FR-S is twin to the BRZ, and the models are products of joint development between Subaru and Toyota.
Another sports car, the Audi TT RS, is in third place, exiting showrooms in seven days. The Toyota Prius C — which was the quickest-selling model in April — continues to be a sought-after choice (10 days), while new models like the Acura ILX and Infiniti JX also fare well (eight and 13 days, respectively). Other speedy sellers include the Toyota Prius V, Hyundai Veloster, Kia Soul and Volkswagen Golf R.
Our data team arrived at this information by looking at “days to turn.” This term refers to the number of days a vehicle spends on the showroom floor before being purchased by a consumer.
