The compact car segment is surging right along with the price of gas. Drivers in the greater New Rochelle area are looking to save money at the pump, and their vehicle of choice appears to be the 2012 Toyota Corolla. Or at least so say the raw sales numbers.
Specifically, last month, Toyota sold 24,804 Corolla models, which marks a 2.4-percent increase over last year's sales. Smooth and steady. Meanwhile, almost every other competing automaker within the compact segment actually saw a decrease in sales. From the second-place Civic to the last-place Mazda3, nearly every competing model failed to meet their sales numbers from the previous year.
