Filed under: Car Buying , Budget , Hybrid , Etc. , Hatchback , Toyota Edmunds has taken the time to sort through the March 2012 sales data to find which were the quickest selling models of the month. According to the site’s research, the 2012 Toyota Prius C took the top nod by sitting on dealer lots just eight days before whirring off to a new home. Manufacturers routinely use “days to turn” to evaluate consumer demand, though pesky variables like production capacity can easily tweak the number north or south. That’s likely why the Audi Q7 took just 11 days to turn and its smaller sibling, the Q5 , took just 13. Audi is having a hard time keeping production in pace with consumer demand. Other stars of last month’s show include the Hyundai Veloster . With an average of 14 days on dealer lots, the model finds itself tied with hardware like the BMW X6 and Subaru Impreza for being quick to turn. You can check out the full list of quickest-sellers by heading over to Edmund’s Inside Line .

Filed under: Car Buying , Honda , Hyundai , Jeep , Nissan , Toyota , Volkswagen , Volvo If you hear the pejorative “chick car,” what comes to mind? Mazda MX-5 Miata ? Volvo C70 ? Would you believe neither made Inside Line’s list of 2011 models with the highest percentage of female ownership? No. 1, with 57.9-percent female ownership was the Volvo S40 . Considering the female dollar is sought-after, it’s probably too bad that Volvo decided to axe the model for 2012. That means No. 2, the Nissan Rogue with 56.9 percent, could take the top spot for 2012. Or maybe the VW Eos at No.
