February 2013 Top 10 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada


2013 Suzuki Kizashi red

Seven 7-Series sedans were sold in Canada in February 2013. Pleasantly harmonized the number may be, but it represented an 84% year-over-year decline from the 44 7-Series sedans that were sold a year ago. Another BMW, the Z4, posted a similarly dreadful decline. BMW X1 volume slid 64%; X5 volume slid 46%.

Cadillac’s previously core sedan, now the Canadian division’s third-best-selling sedan (of three), recorded an 82% drop compared with February 2012. The CTS is undercut by the new ATS to the tune of $9805. Cadillac sold 164 ATS sedans in February, just 36 copies of the CTS sedan, coupe, and wagon.

Suzuki Canada recorded its worst ever Kizashi sales month in February 2013.

We can expect to see sales of Chrysler’s SRT Viper rising soon. As production reaches full tilt, fewer than 2000 will be built in 2013. It’s unlikely that many of those cars will leave the United States.

Vehicle must have been on sale in February 2013, must not have been officially cancelled by its manufacturer, and must have been showcased on manufacturer’s website in February. The rule that disallows discontinued or cancelled vehicles can lead to confusion, as manufacturers often announce the discontinuation of a model but continue to market the car indefinitely. Sales of the Scion xD, for example, slid 69% to 22 in February.
