Consumers are undeniably veering away from cars to SUVs, not all that slowly but very surely. This doesn't mean all cars are suffering the same plight. 

Audi A3 sales continue to rise. BMW 2-Series sales continue to rise. Infiniti Q70 sales continue to rise.

Granted, none of those cars are particularly high-volume players.

* vehicle also displayed in another GCBC segment breakdown
^ BMW USA, previously combined sales figures of the 3-Series and 4-Series but recently began splitting the pair. 2-Series figures continue to take old 1-Series sales into account.
^ A4 includes Allroad, without which A4 sales were down 10% to 2418 in November; down 16% to 25,841 YTD.
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 Acura ILX here but also with mainstream cars like the Buick Verano, too, and the Audi A5 is also displayed with coupes and convertibles... because readers have wanted it both ways. Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the "brand status" issue. The K900, Equus, and XTS are here not because of their size but because of their price points, their lack of direct comparability with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
