2013 Mazda CX-5 red driving
This Marked The First Time Since April That
Mazda's Handsome But Underpowered CX-5
Was One Of Canada's 30 Best-Selling Vehicles
38% of the Fords sold in Canada in November 2012 were F-Series pickup trucks. The F-Series is long since on its way to its best sales year ever, and therefore the best sales year ever for any vehicle ever marketed in Canada. By now, over 100,000 F-Series trucks have been sold, and there remains a dozen days to buy a new vehicle.

Sales of Canada's best-selling car tumbled in November but remain far above last year's pace. The Honda Civic's November drop had no impact on its lead over the next-best-selling Hyundai Elantra. In fact, the Civic's year-to-date lead grew by 954 to more than 10,000 units.


On this list of November's 30 best-selling vehicles in Canada, no vehicle posted a worse year-over-year decrease than the Chevrolet Silverado. Its 27% drop represented 933 lost sales for GM Canada's dealers in November 2012. No vehicle posted a greater year-over-year increase than the Honda Accord. Its 240% jump represented 1024 extra sales for Honda. Honda Canada's dealers. Hyundai sold an extra 1182 Santa Fes (Santa Fe sales were down 46% at this time last year), Hyundai sold 1163 more Elantras than in November 2011, and Ford sold 1221 more Escapes.
