Analyst Opinion

A medium-sized car offers a compromise between small and large cars, and is one of the most sought-after cars, after small SUVs. This is due to their affordability, compactness, ease-of-use and family friendliness. Medium cars are surely here to stay, and with the introduction of a wide variety of choices for consumers to choose from by manufacturers such as Ford, Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi, vehicle sales accruing from the Medium Cars segment would continue to increase.
