February 2015 Subcompact Sales

January 2015 Small Car SalesBy

The second month of 2015 is now under our belt, and February proved to a pretty good month for the small cars. If you bought a MINI Cooper Hardtop, you helped propel the brand to a 445% increase increase compared to 2014. Other big sellers were Honda's Fit and the Mazda Miata. Also, Mitsubishi's Mirage continues to surprise with sales up nearly 67% compared to last year. And yes, the Mirage outsold a number of other vehicles on the list. (Overall Mitsubishi sales were up 26%.)

While the MINI Cooper Hardtop is at the top of the sales chart this month, the not-long-for-this-world MINI Coupe is at the bottom, down 63.3% compared to last year. Oddly, Chevy's Sonic was also down—and down a lot—to the tune of 61.8%. Nissan's Juke CUV and the Smart ForTwo round out the other bottom spots. Oh, and down 50% is yet another MINI, the Paceman.
