Mazda North American Operations said Tuesday that vehicle sales increased by less than 1 percent in November on stronger sales of the CX-7 crossover SUV.

BY THE NUMBERS: The automaker said it sold 14,255 vehicles in November compared with 14,134 in the same month last year. However, overall sales have declined so far this year with 189,512 sold in the first 11 months compared with 245,984 in the same part of 2008.

HOT MODELS: Mazda sold more than twice the number of its popular CX-7 model in November, making up for lackluster sales of the Mazda5 and Mazda6 models.
