Small Car Sales In America - August 2017


The Tall Hatchbacks & Crossovers segment overtook its YTD from 2016 in the eighth month of 2017, as the Honda HR-V put in another strong month. August was the HR-V's 2nd month in a row in which more than 9,000 were sold - can it make it three in a row in September?



Subaru's offering continues its charge, with the Impreza only 10 cars short of the 10,000 sales mark in August. Its monthly total is now within 1,000 cars of the next-best-selling Kia Forte, which has also seen growth this year, though not at the same steep rate as the Subaru.


With the 2018-model Golf shortly due to go on sale, the hatchback's sales have slightly increased again year-on-year, though sales are still less than half of the brand's Jetta small sedan.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are sortable, so you can rank small cars of all kinds any which way you like. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

Source: Automakers & ANDC * 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.
