Small Car Sales In America - November 2016 YTD

2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport grey
Compact car volume took a 4% year-over-year hit in the United States in November 2016 despite the segment-leading Toyota Corolla's 12% surge. 

Helped by the inclusion of the Scion iM – now the Toyota Corolla iM – and an 11% uptick in sedan sales, Corolla volume surged to 28,262 units.

But remove the Corolla and second-ranked Honda Civic from the equation and U.S. sales of all of the lower-volume compact cars, combined, fell 9%.

The disappearance of the Dodge Dart, a transitioning Subaru Impreza, and notable declines from the Mazda 3, Hyundai Elantra, Ford Focus, and Volkswagen Jetta created a drag even the Corolla and Civic couldn't overcome.

Subcompact cars, meanwhile, were flat despite a sharp decrease in Nissan Versa volume. The Versa, by far and away the best-selling subcompact, tumbled 19% in November as Nissan readies a facelifted MY2017. But big gains from the Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, and Toyota Yaris kept the category on an even keel.

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.
