The folks at AutoTrader announced today that the Chevrolet Camaro once again became the most-viewed new vehicle on the site. The site also reported that Hyundai’s new 2011 Sonata midsize sedan was the most-viewed new vehicle in its class for the first time ever, surpassing competitors that include Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima.
“As the Camaro, Equinox, Sorento and Sonata all prove, hot new designs still are capable of drawing shopper attention on-line and in showrooms,” said AutoTrader.com President and CEO Chip Perry. “With most major automakers planning lots of new product to roll out during the course of 2010, consumers will have a lot to be excited about at their local dealership this year.”
Other big gains in vehicles came from a pair of crossovers – also from Chevrolet and the Hyundai/Kia group. Views of the Chevrolet Equinox were up 186 percent in views year-over-year, making it the most-viewed new vehicle in its class and the 8th most-viewed new vehicle overall. Views of the new Kia Sorento were up 268 percent year-over-year, making it the 2nd most-viewed compact crossover, and 20th overall among all vehicles.
