Mazda, Subaru Rev Up Amid Toyota Troubles

Mazda

The headline: A nearly 30% improvement in Mazda3's sales powered the company to a 4% gain over last February's tally.

The hidden gem: The Mazda3, CX-7 and CX-9 were the rare bright spots, as the company's nine other models posted double-digit declines.

Mitsubishi

The headline: Mitsubishi sales dropped 1% from a year earlier as the company sold 4,019 cars.

The hidden gem: Sales of its Galant model rose 42% from the same time last year, while Endeavor sales soared 162%.

Volkswagen

The headline: With sales jumping 32.6% from last February and year-to-date sales climbing 36.9% from this time last year, practical models like the hard-to-pronounce Tiguan are paving the way.

The hidden gem: Not really. The sporty GTI models sold 166% more than they did last February, while the gas-guzzling Routan SUV sales climbed 122.7%.
