Small Car Sales In America - November 2014 YTD

In an American car market which failed to produce any growth in November 2014, compact car sales were up 8%. A gain of 12,000 units was powered by a large number of nameplates, from the 26% improvements from the Chevrolet Cruze and Volkswagen Jetta to the Dodge Dart's 39% jump and the Volkswagen Golf's 78% boost. In fact, November 2014 was the new Dart's best month ever.

Sales of the top-selling small car in America, the Toyota Corolla, rose 14%. The Corolla (dying Matrix included, as per Toyota's sales release) now leads the second-ranked Honda Civic by 8729 units heading into December. After four sub-300K sales years, 2014 is the Corolla's second consecutive year with more than 300,000 U.S. sales. 

To put that in context, consider the sales figures achieved by America's best-selling car so far this year: Toyota Camry volume is up 5% to 396,988. Meanwhile, America's best-selling subcompact, the Nissan Versa is up 20% to 130,652.


For the Versa, this means its year-to-date volume is 48% better than the sales of its next-best-selling rival, the Chevrolet Sonic. The Sonic ranked third in the category in November behind both the Versa and Honda Fit, sales of which shot up 55% now that the third-gen model is readily available. Yet even with the Fit's big gains, subcompact volume was level in November after rising 3.4% through the first ten months of 2014.

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.
