April 2012 subcompact sales

April 2012 Subcompact SalesFrom the numbers below, it looks like April, 2012 was a mixed bag for the smallest of the small cars. Although the usual suspects were up at the top, there have been a few cars that seem to be in a slump, such as the Ford Fiesta and Mazda2 (which has done well YTD vs. 2011).

The big winner was Toyota's redesigned-for-2012 Yaris with sales up over 115% vs. April, 2011.

The big loser this month, Honda's two-seater hybrid, the CR-Z, which moved a paltry 334 units for a whopping drop of 81.6% vs. this same time last year. In what appears to be continual slump, Nissan's funky Cube, which now going on eight straight months of sales drops of more than -60% vs. the same time last year. Yikes.

Chevy's Sonic continues to sell very well; Fiat's 500 looks healthy, too. And yes, the Scion iQ has now outsold the Smart ForTwo for two consecutive months. On to the big board!
