The Civic now leads the Toyota Corolla by 7647 units heading into the second-half of 2016. At this stage one year ago, the Civic was nearly 32,000 sales behind the Toyota. Only one car, Toyota's larger Camry, has outsold the Civic so far this year.

Among subcompact cars, the gains of another Nissan stand out. The more affordable Versa is on track for a seventh consecutive year of record U.S. sales. Combined, its two closest rivals – Accent and Sonic – don't sell as often as the Nissan.

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.
