June Sales: Subcompacts And Small Hatches
July 8th, 2010 11:50 AM Share
Kia’s Soul didn’t have the most electrifying launch sales-wise, but with the release of its second buzz-worthy ad, the funky little box is becoming a major player in our A/B/Small Hatch segment. The Nissan Versa is clearly the dominant player here, selling nearly twice as well as the Soul. Meanwhile, there’s a tight pack of offerings that have moved at least 20k units this year, that ranges from the aged HHR to the MINI Cooper. Look for a big shake-up in this segment once Ford’s Fiesta production hits high gear.

It's confusing to have the Golf on this list when the Mazda 3, Civic, and Corolla/Matrix are not.
My guess is that Ford will dominate this segment by a wide margin very shortly.
Only 5,000 PT Cruisers sold so far this year? Ouch. I know the thing is old, but didn't Chrysler manage to move 100K+ per year back in the day?
The Caliber in fifth place? ahead of the Fit, the MINI, the Golf??? Sick, I tell you.
