The Elantra, Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Mazda 3 owned 56% of the compact car category, a group of cars which generated 49% of the overall passenger car market in February 2014, up from 47% in February 2013.

Subcompact sales slid 8% in February 2014 in large part because of the Mazda 2's horrendous 78% drop. Chevrolet Sonic volume was down 36%; sales of the Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, and Toyota Prius C also decreased.

In a group of somewhat sporting or at least less practical alternatives to conventional small cars - Fiat 500, Hyundai Veloster, Mini Cooper, Scion tC, Volkswagen Beetle - sales plunged 35%.

* 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. 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.
