2015 volkswagen golf sportwagen fastest selling vehicle for april 2015

The 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen was the fastest-selling vehicle for April, besting many a truck and SUV in so doing.

The SportWagen only took an average of nine days between deboarding the car carrier and heading out onto the highway, Cars.com reports. The 2015 Ford Edge and Porsche Macan tied for silver at 11 days, while the Chevrolet Colorado crew cab and Subaru Outback only spent 12 days on the lot.

On the opposite end, the 2015 BMW 650i xDrive convertible took home the gold as the slowest-selling vehicle in the showroom during April, spending an average of 180 days before someone finally took one out into the sun. The 640i xDrive convertible left the lot five days earlier than its sibling, while the Kia K900 took 172 days from container to garage on average.

Overall, cars made up the slowest-selling list, while 18 out of 23 fastest-selling models were either trucks, crossovers or SUVs.

    I don't keep up with such trends normally, but am I the only one surprised that Subaru has 5 different models in the top 23 listed? I know they stopped building Toyota's to make more Subaru's, and now I see why. It appears they can barely build them fast enough to keep up with demand.

      Subaru is slaying it with the new Outback. I went by 2 dealers this weekend to kill time...a couple of base models, but it's the loaded Limiteds in short supply. And I'm here in sunny Houston. Soooo tempted to trade my '13 in for the '15 with the BLIS and Eyesight. Totally out of my nature since I normally keep my cars 12 years/250k miles.

    The Sonic sedan is at the bottom of the list - I wonder where the Sonic hatch sits. There's a dealer about 300 miles away that's sitting on TWO Dragon Green Promo LT Turbos. They haven't dropped the price, and Chevy only has $500 on the hood. They've been on the lot since at least December. If they're still there by Labor Day, I may drive up there and shoot them a lowball.

    "Fastest selling vehicle" just indicates supply versus demand. Most of the vehicles on the list of quickest selling are even in the Top 10 for volume sales. I'm surprised that BigAlfromOz hasn't pointed out that the Colorado crewcab sat on the lot for less time than the aluminum crew F150. (12 days versus 19) But hey, we all know the F150 is a complete failure for Ford ;)

      19 days on the lot is crazy fast for a full sized truck. I'm getting interested in the Colorado/Canyon though. I still think it's a bit too big on the outside while being too small on the inside. I doubt a GMC or Chevy dealer would let me take an extended test drive with one. They are selling too many.

    The fastest selling vehicle? Rubbish. They've only sold about 4 or 5 thousand Sportwagens this year so far in the US. Another silly TTAC headline. All we're talking about is how long the few cars VW actually gets around to supplying stay on the lot. Whoop-de-do. If days on lot equated with sales success, the Camry and Accord would be worse, despite actually selling about 15 times as many each as the dowdy Sportswagen.
