Top 245 Best-Selling Vehicles In Canada – January 2012 – Every Vehicle Ranked


Red Fiat 500 Sport

January, as expected, wasn’t a huge month for new car sales in Canada, but it was significantly better than January 2011. Nearly 96,000 new vehicles were sold in Canada in the first month of 2012; that’s 15% better than the same period last year.

Canada’s best-selling truck, car, minivan, and SUV ranked first, second, fourth, and seventh out of 245 vehicles sold in January 2012. Canada’s leading luxury vehicle in January was the BMW 3-Series (it has since lost that crown, likely temporarily) in 33rd spot. Vehicles not on sale a year ago fared decently in some cases: the Fiat 500 finished January in 79th. The Mini Cooper, on the other hand, was 121st. Toyota’s Prius V finished twice as far up the rankings as the original Prius. Hyundai’s Veloster slotted in behind the Mitsubishi Lancer but ahead of the 59th-ranked Mitsubishi RVR. In 78th and 83rd you’ll find the Chevrolet Orlando and BMW X1.

Monthly and yearly data for every model on sale in North America is always on hand, ready for your perusal through the dropdown menu at the top right of this page. GoodCarBadCar publishes regular best seller lists as soon as manufacturers make information available. This type of exhaustive year-to-date list of every new model is a new addition to the fold and you’ll find it in the latter part of the month, each and every month, from the end of 2011 and onward.
