Thanks to big increases from mid-level players like the Mazda 3, Dodge Dart, and Volkswagen Golf and meaningful increases from the best-selling Toyota Corolla and the steadily improving Nissan Sentra, the compact car category overcame decreases from the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, and Volkswagen Jetta.
Subcompact sales, however, slid 11% despite an 81% Honda Fit improvement and continued growth from the top-selling Nissan Versa.
A hugely discouraging start to the year for the Chevrolet Sonic came as inventories surged: there were nearly 30,000 Sonics in stock at dealers at the beginning of February, enough for 216-day supply.
Overall GM car volume slid 21% in February 2015. But due to strong truck and utility vehicle sales, GM’s total volume was up 4%.
