Small Car Sales Figures In America - August 2013 YTD

2013 Chevrolet Sonic hatchback orange
The Honda Civic was America's best-selling small car and second-best-selling car overall in August 2013. The Civic's 58% year-over-year improvement was unmatched by any compact car other than the Dodge Dart, which was a three-month-old nameplate at this time in 2012.

As America's new vehicle market grew 17% in August and car sales rose 15%, five subcompacts reported above-average year-over-year increases: Sonic, Fiesta, Fit, Prius C, and Yaris. Sales of the Kia Rio and Nissan Versa also grew in August. 

Toyota USA sold more Prius Cs in August than in any month in the model's history. The same can be said for GM and its Chevrolet Sonic.

With 4534 sales, Chevrolet enjoyed its best Spark sales month in the model's 14-month history. For the eighth consecutive month, the Scion iQ posted a decrease in sales, although August iQ volume was at the second-highest point in 2013.

* 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.
