Small Car Sales Figures In America - July 2013 YTD

2013 Chevrolet Spark blue
Small cars accounted for half of all Chevrolet passenger car sales in July 2013, up from 42% a year ago. This was driven in large part by the Cruze, which reported a 70% year-over-year increase, but Chevrolet also recorded its best Spark sales month in the model's 13-month history. 

The Spark is America's 60th-best-selling car through the first seven months of 2013, ahead of the Volkswagen Golf and 90 other nameplates.

Honda, meanwhile, generated 53% of its passenger car volume with the Civic, CR-Z, and Fit last month. Toyota relied on the Prius C, Corolla, Matrix, and Yaris for slightly less than one-third of its car sales. Hyundai-Kia emphasizes small cars, not just in terms of sales but as a percentage of their offerings: Accent, Elantra, Veloster, Forte, Rio, and Soul were responsible for 58% of the Korean manufacturer's July 2013 passenger car volume.

The best-selling Mini variant in July was the Countryman, which posted its second-highest-volume month in the model's history. Mini's five-pronged Cooper range - Hardtop, Clubman, Convertible, Coupe, Roadster - has outsold the Fiat 500 by 700 units through seven months. Fiat added 962 500L sales in July; a good thing, as Fiat 500 sales tumbled 24%. July marked the second consecutive decline and just the model's second drop since Fiat returned to North America.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown.
GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small SUVs, too, and the Acura ILX shown with mainstream cars is also displayed with luxury cars... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
