Data compiled by Headlight Magazine shows the Civic ended Q1 2021 with 4,098 units sold, while only 1,581 and 576 units of the Corolla Altis and Mazda 3 found new owners in the January to March 2021 period.
While the Corolla Altis has always found itself behind the Civic, sales of the C-segment sedan has been in free fall ever since the Toyota Corolla Cross debuted there last year.
The reason is apparent: the Corolla Cross offers more space, and an equivalent variant is still cheaper than the range-topping Altis. In terms of age, the Corolla Cross is a slightly fresher product as well, having only been introduced in 2020 (vs. the Altis in 2019).
Meanwhile, the Mazda 3 - being the most expensive of the trio - finds itself still languishing in third place.

|Toyota Corolla Altis||1,581|
|Mazda 3 Sedan||576|
All in, these numbers show that the Civic has been sitting at the top spot for more than a year already, outselling every rival in every month since January 2020.
In other news, there's been a few spyshots of the all-new 2021 Honda Civic FE in Thailand. Time will tell if that model can continue the domination of the FC-generation Civic.
