There were certainly Civic rivals that grew faster on a percentage year-over-year basis. Chevrolet Cruze sales were up 22%, Nissan Sentra sales jumped 57%, and Volkswagen Golf volume doubled.

The Civic's little brother, Honda's Fit, was just transitioning from second-gen to a third-generation model in September, and sales were cut in half compared with September 2013 as supply was constrained. The Fit accounted for just 5% of subcompact sales. 

Hyundai's Accent, on the other hand, is the Civic of subcompacts in Canada. The Accent's year-to-date market share stands at 25%, and together with its Kia sibling, the Rio, Hyundai-Kia market share  is up to 42% from 41% at the three-quarter mark 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. 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.
