Best-Selling Models In The Compact Segment Of The US Car Market
According to the results of sales in the 1st quarter of 2018, a compact segment of cars in the US was headed by the Honda Civic. Which models are among the TOP 5 best sellers?
The Honda Civic is not much, but still ahead of its main competitor – the Toyota Corolla. The TOP 5 compact segment of the US also includes the Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Elantra and the Chevrolet Cruze.
In the first quarter of 2018, sales in this niche fell by 10% to 464,749 vehicles. This was a faster rate of decline than 7% observed in the fourth quarter of 2017. This is a sign of how much the main segment of the market has been affected recently.
However, soon the the new generations of the Ford Focus and the VW Jetta will be marketed, and the next Toyota Corolla is coming.
A sub-segment of green cars began to influence the sales. The Chevrolet Bolt / Volt, the Toyota Prius Prime, the new Nissan Leaf significantly affect the total sales.
