December 2012 subcompact sales

Subcompact Sales
Last month's top sellers were also some of the smallest. The Scion iQ had a big jump of 132.3% vs. December of 2011. The Mazda2 also had a big jump, and the Fiat 500 had a good sized nudge, too.

The CR-Z was the big loser last month, down almost 57%, likely due to supply issues. The Yaris, which was redesigned for 2012, also had a bad month (again) down almost 56%.

For the year, the Kia Soul was the top seller on the chart with more than 115,000 units sold. The Nissan Sentra was a close second with 113,327 units. In third was the newcomer, Chevy Sonic with 81,247. The slowest seller of 2012 was the niche-market MINI Coupe, selling just 2,880 units.
