October 2012 Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada

2013 Honda Accord burgundy
With its first 1000+ performance since August of last year, the Honda Accord surged ahead of all midsize rivals to find its place among Canada's eight best-selling cars in October 2012. The Accord hasn't been on Canada's best-selling cars list since last August, when it ranked 20th out of 20 cars. Accord sales had plunged 19% back then. Accord sales jumped 177% this October.

You'll notice another Honda nearer to the top of this month's Canadian best-selling cars post. You'll notice the Civic near or at the top every month. The best-selling Honda Civic expanded its lead over the second-ranked Hyundai Elantra to 9574 units.


Missing from this October edition are two sub-1000-unit cars, the Kia Optima and Subaru Impreza. Oddly strong performances by the Chevrolet Orlando and Kia Rondo, two cars GoodCarBadCar also lists with minivans, helped to eliminate the more conventional Optima and Impreza.

As will always be the case in the future, historic brand and corporate totals (monthly and yearly going back to 2004) are now available through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, along with results for more than 260 currently sold vehicles. That's where you'll find out that Kia last came close to 1000 Rondo sales in July 2010, when 947 were sold.

Canada's 20 best-selling cars all sold at least 1000 copies in July. The BMW 3-Series was not in that group, and it missed this month's top 20 by just six units.
