U.S. sales of the Nissan Altima, America’s second-best-selling car, increased in June after declines in each of the four previous months.

You get the idea. With the auto industry surging, car buyers are migrating away from traditional family sedans while sales of smaller crossovers are powering the industry to its current surge.

Then there are the even smaller crossovers, a mostly new breed of subcompact and compact-based utilities with potential for surprisingly vast volume. In just its second month on sale, Honda sold 7760 copies of the HR-V, a segment-leading figure. The HR-V isn’t eating away at its direct competition, either, as sales of the Subaru XV Crosstrek, Buick Encore, Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Mini’s Countryman all increased on a year-over-year basis in June, as well.

* 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 cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well… 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. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee – truly not midsize inside – replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
