Toyota Motor Sales saw their share of the U.S. market fall from 15 percent in July 2014 to 14.4 percent in July 2015 even as their premium Lexus division ended the month with more sales than BMW or Mercedes-Benz. 
Ford Motor Company and Fiat Chrysler held steady on a year-over-year basis as Honda, Nissan, the Korean Hyundai-Kia conglomerate, and the Volkswagen Group posted narrow market share gains.
Daimler and the BMW Group combined to own 4.4 percent of the U.S. auto market in July 2014.
