Small Car Sales In America - October 2016 YTD

2016 Honda Fit grey
U.S. sales of compact cars slid 7.5% in October 2016, essentially flat on a daily selling rate basis given the brevity of the "October" sales month. October 2015 had 28 selling days; October 2016 had 26 selling days.

Subcompact car sales, meanwhile, dipped by just 4% (essentially rising 3% on a daily selling rate basis) as the imported Honda Fit continues to regain ground even as its partner, the Honda HR-V crossover, continues to improve its sales volume, as well.

The Nissan Versa continues to lead the category, but sales plunged by more than one-third in October 2016 and are down 7% this year.

* 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.
