Top 10 Best-Selling European Cars In Canada – October 2010


Down from the #1 position fell the BMW 3-Series, an interesting fact given the huge rise in Audi A4 sales in October 2010. For context, consider October 2009 sales of the 3-Series (1210) and September 2010 sales of the 3-Series (1631) whilst also considering October 2009 sales of the Audi A4 (381) and September 2010 sales of the A4 (615). Both cars slid a little from September to October – not traditionally the best car-selling month in Canada – but in contrast to last year, Audi Canada’s financing deals on the A4 might have been just enough to take a small bite out of the 3-Series in October. Or not.

It may be that BMW’s 5.5% growth of 3-Series sales in 2010 meant more buyers had already done their shopping. A4 sales in Canada are up 24.8% through the end of October. The Audi A4 Avant was once a member of The Good 12, for the record. Last year, the whole BMW 3-Series family made it into the big show.

Of course, all this takes away from the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta’s big news. This is something wonderful to write home to Wolfsburg about – Jetta sales jumped 130.1% from October 2009; up an even more impressive 157.7% from September 2010. October will certainly go down as a memorable month for Volkswagen sales reps in Canada. The 2011 VW Jetta is currently Canada’s best-selling Japanese car.
