Small Car Sales In America - July 2016 YTD

2016 Honda Civic Coupe blue
U.S. sales of compact cars declined 7%, not quite as sharp a drop as the 9% decline reported by the overarching passenger car sector, even though Americans took delivery of more Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas.

The Honda Civic, all-new in tenth-gen form for 2016, rose 6% in July to a class-leading 32,952 sales in July. The Civic is America's second-best-selling car overall.

The Toyota Corolla, which stumbled 4% in the first-half of 2016, posted a 5% July increase. The dominant Civic/Corolla thus grew their market share from 31% in July 2015 to 35% in July 2016, a marked improvement for two cars which already controlled a massive share of the market for compact cars in America.

Subcompact cars, meanwhile, collectively reported a 15% year-over-year increase to 41,804 U.S. sales in July 2016. This isn't a particularly meaningful improvement for two reasons.

First, the trend through the first seven months of 2016 shows that subcompact volume is down by more than 9000 sales this year. Second, July 2016's 15% increase compared with July 2015 still means U.S. sales of subcompacts were down 14% compared with July 2014. 

The Nissan Versa, up 19% to 11,856 units last month, is an increasingly dominant force among subcompacts

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.
