April 2017 auto sales volume slid 5%. The car market as a whole was down 11%. But because of big year-over-year gains from the Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, Subaru Impreza, and Volkswagen Golf, compact sales were only slightly south of level.

Subcompact cars, on the other hand, were down 28% in April 2017, a loss of nearly 13,000 sales for the core segment.
The Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio, both approaching a replacement phase, are partly to blame, but sales of the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, and Toyota Prius C likewise plunged.
