Huge increases from the Dodge Dart, Ford Focus, Nissan Sentra, and Volkswagen Golf – together with otherwise quite meaningful jumps from the Chevrolet Cruze, Kia Forte, Mazda 3, Mitsubishi Lancer, Subaru Impreza, and the Corolla itself - translated to nearly 22,000 extra sales for our strictly defined compact category.

Subcompact cars, meanwhile, despite disastrous results from the Chevrolet Sonic (worst month since its first full month on sale, September 2011), Ford Fiesta (fourth consecutive month below 4K), Kia Rio (worst month for the current-gen model), and Mazda 2 (replace me now!) were nearly cancelled out by Fit, Accent, Versa, and Toyota gains. 

Elsewhere in the small car world, Mini's selling a fair number of new Coopers, the Hardtop models, not the dying Clubmans and Roadsters and Coupes. Buick and Chevrolet combined to sell more than 5000 copies of their small urban crossover twins, the Encore and Trax. And in addition to the 7527 Imprezas, WRXs, and STis sold in January, Subaru also sold 6513 XV Crosstreks.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank small cars of all kinds any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

* vehicle also displayed 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.
