April 2015 Subcompact Car Sales

April 2015 Small Car SalesBy

Several models posted up double-digit numbers for the month of April this year. The top of the pack (and total surprise) continues to be the Spartan 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, which was up over 80% compared to last year at this time, moving 2,407 units. The popular MINI Cooper two-door hardtop was up 77.7% moving 2,141 units, and the Honda Fit was up 55.6% moving a healthy 6,529 cars. The Toyota Yaris also continues its sales comeback with a 48.5% uptick in sales (33.7% year to date).

The biggest loser—unsurprisingly—is the Scion iQ, down 62.8% selling just 73 units. This makes me wonder how many leftover 2014s there are vs. new 2015 models. The MINI Paceman—an answer to a question no one asked—is also down there, selling just 11 units more than the iQ. Finally, despite being an awesome rally car, the Honda CR-Z is also down pretty big, which is no big surprise.

One thing I do notice is that combined Spark and Mirage sales total 23,408. This shows that people are buying inexpensive four-door A-segment hatchbacks. It also makes me wonder if Scion will soon offer its Aygo in the U.S.
