Our Take On The Small Cars Sales Numbers

December was not a great month for small car sales. In fact, 2018 didn’t turn out to be a great year for small car sales.

City cars were up slightly for the year but down for the month of December. The significant increases in sales of the Mitsubishi Mirage were the most notable in that category with a 70.9 percent increase for the month of December over last year and an 8.6 percent increase for the entire year.

The Ford Fiesta is another car that stands out as a vehicle that saw increases in both December and for the year. It sold 17.8 percent more cars in December than it did this month last year. On the year as a whole, sales increased 11.9 percent.

Aside from that, the only other notable vehicle was the Kia Rio. Although its December sales were down 0.6 percent, sales for the year were up by an impressive 37.1 percent.
