"In June, Camry and Corolla posted double-digit gains as passenger cars showed renewed strength industry-wide.”
 
“While the industry has been posting healthy gains, Lexus has been able to more than double the average growth rate with a combination of fresh new products, improving availability and industry-leading customer satisfaction practices,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “The new Lexus IS and GX models were two of the industry's strongest performing products during the first six months of 2014.”
