Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – September 2011


2012 Honda Civic

After four consecutive months of Hyundai Elantra domination and what appeared to be the Elantra’s sure takeover of Canada’s best-selling car crown, the Honda Civic came roaring back with 4727 September 2011 sales. This increases the Honda Civic’s year-to-date lead in best-selling car standings to 1122 sales. 

Honda Civic sales slid 21% in September – Elantra sales jumped 13% – but Civic sales rose 54% from August levels. Sales of the Elantra actually slid 4% month-to-month. The Elantra Touring was responsible for 18.7% of all Elantra sales. The Touring was down 29%; Elantra sedan sales were up 31% from September 2010.

Elsewhere in September’s Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada list you’ll discover that nearly half of all the contenders suffered declining year-over-year sales last month. The leading midsize car was the Hyundai Sonata, sales of which rose 25%. Through three-quarters of 2011, the Ford Fusion’s lead over the Sonata is just under 2000-units strong, however. Fusion sales dropped 21% in September. Hyundai Accent sales improved slightly, up 5%, and its subcompact lead through the first nine months of 2011 grew to 6493 sales. Meanwhile, the BMW 3-Series was the best-selling luxury car in Canada in September despite sales which not unexpectedly plunged 40%.
