US – Small Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Small car sales in the U.S. didn’t have a very good month in September and the segment has had a rough year so far.

The monthly sales numbers show a decline of about 35,000 sales when compared with this month last year. When you look at the YTD numbers the segment is down about 117,513 sales.

Thee Honda Civic leads the pack in terms of overall sales volume. It was down about 10 percent for the month. However, YTD the model is up less than a percent.

It’ll be interesting to see how many more sales this segment declines as the year wears on. We expect sales to continue to decline.

Below you will find sales figures for all small cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report September 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.
