Saving compacts from more serious decline were gains from the Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Subau Impreza, and Volkswagen Golf.
Subcompact cars, meanwhile, jumped 8% from their January 2016 totals to more than 30,000 units in January 2017. Big movement from the Nissan Versa and Hyundai Accent, America’s two top-selling subcompacts, were the most meaningful improvements.
