Small Car Sales Figures In Canada - July 2013 YTD

2013 Honda Fit
In July 2013, Honda Canada regained the lead that typically belongs to the Civic. Canada's best-selling car through the first seven months of 2013 is once again the Elantra-beating Civic. Of course, it's a small lead, just 351 units. 

69% of Honda car sales in Canada are generated by the Civic. The Fit, meanwhile, produces just 8% of Honda's passenger car volume in Canada. Eight Civics are sold per Fit. South of the border, the Civic and Fit account for just 50% of Honda brand car sales, and the Civic outsells the Fit by a six-to-one count. 


Hyundai's Elantra range outsells the leading subcompact, the Accent, by 2.8-to-1. The Toyota Corolla outsells the Yaris and Prius C - combined - by nearly four-to-one. The Mazda 3, Canada's fourth-best-selling car, by eight-to-one, as well.

The Chevrolet Cruze, Canada's fifth-best-selling car and fifth-best-selling compact, sells more than three times as often as the Sonic. Canada's sixth-best-selling car, the Volkswagen Jetta, doesn't even have a subcompact sibling in North America. 

Put it this way: Canadians love small cars, but they really love small cars that aren't too small.

^ includes Paceman, Cooper is unfortunately not broken down by variant
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.
