May 2013 Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 142 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - Every Car Ranked

2013 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Hybrid white
Unlike the overall Canadian passenger car market, Canada's best-selling car is selling much more frequently in 2013 than it did in the first five months of 2013.

The fact that the Hyundai Elantra is now available as a sedan, hatchback, and coupe is certainly helpful. Canada's second-best-selling car, the Honda Civic, is a sedan or coupe only, and sales of the Civic are down this year from a four-year high in 2012. Canada's third-best-selling car, the Toyota Corolla, is exclusively available as a sedan, although if sales data is configured as it is by Toyota USA, the Corolla and its Matrix hatchback sibling are actually Canada's best-selling tandem, outselling the Elantra trio of cars by 27 units between January and May.

Canada's sixth-best-selling car, the Volkswagen Jetta, is a sedan-only product, but it's undoubtedly been helped by the availability of numerous powerplants: a basic and inexpensive 2.0L four-cylinder; a moderately powerful but not terrible efficient 2.5L five-cylinder; a fuel-sipping 2.0L turbocharged diesel; a torquey 2.0L turbocharged gas-powered four-cylinder; and now, a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder hybrid. Aided by a price drop, Jetta sales in Canada are up 27% this year.

Not all cars that are priced similarly are necessarily competitors, although Canada's seven best-selling cars clearly are. The rear-wheel-drive Hyundai Genesis Coupe and rear-wheel-drive Scion FR-S are both meant to attract a buyer whose needs relate more to fun than cargo-carrying flexibility, but they go about finding fun in slightly different ways. The FR-S has definitely been successful for Toyota and its Scion subsidiary, but even in a slow year, the Genesis Coupe (down 28%) sells in relatively similar numbers. So how successful is the FR-S if, with 863 sales and a ranking of 64th, it hasn't crushed the (declining) 71st-ranked Hyundai? Well, don't forget, the exact same car, Subaru's BRZ, has contributed another 460 sales. Together, the Toyobaru twins are outselling the Chevrolet Camaro.


These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by May volume by clicking the May 2013 column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header. Just remember, the list is horizontally flipped from the norm: YTD on the left, monthly data on the right.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.

Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total. Sales data for brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in May were 18 and 4, respectively. Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models.

* Notes: Mini Cooper includes sales of the Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman, Coupe, Roadster, and Paceman. Total Prius Family sales are down 26% to 3224 this year, down 24% to 918 in May. Total Genesis sales are down 17% to 1165 this year, down 30% to 319 in May. Total corrected slightly downward on July 18, 2013.
