During the same period in which U.S. sales of the Chevrolet Cruze have fallen harshly, sales of the Cruze’s subcompact sibling, the Sonic, have risen sharply. 

Fortunately for Chevrolet, the Sonic is making up for the Cruze’s losses. Although this didn’t prove to be the case in the month of July, at this stage of 2011, with seven months of car selling complete, Chevrolet had sold 173,070 compacts and subcompacts. This year, including 58 Aveos and 11 Cobalts, Chevrolet has sold 174,256 compacts and subcompacts. And now, we can throw in another 1460 Sparks for a total of 175,716 small car sales.
