2012 Hyundai Accent sedan hatchback
5.2% of the new vehicles sold in Canada in May 2013 were subcompact cars. The second table below isolates these nine subcompact cars. Only four of the nine reported year-over-year increases. Canada's nine leading compact cars, from the Hyundai Elantra to the Nissan Sentra, owned 19% of Canada's overall new vehicle market.

Dodge Dart sales rose for the fourth consecutive month and reached the highest level yet. Combined, the Toyota Corolla and Matrix have outsold the class-leading Hyundai Elantra, Canada's best-selling car, by 27 units this year. Year-over-year, sales of the Honda Fit more than doubled in May.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small SUVs, too, and the Acura ILX shown with mainstream cars is also displayed with luxury cars... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
