Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - August 2013

2014 Ford Fiesta sedan grey
Honda solidified the Civic's status as Canada's best-selling car with a massive August in which 7213 Civic sedans and coupes were sold.

Civic volume rose 25% year-over-year. Although Civic sales remain down through the first eight months of 2013, August 2013 was the third consecutive month of year-over-year increases. Combined with American Honda's total, 46,671 Civics were sold in August. Toyota USA and Toyota Canada combined for 46,077 Camry sales.


Now 2546 sales back of the Civic, Hyundai Canada's Elantra family, while poised to easily claim the second spot, does not appear capable of ending 2013 as Canada's best-selling car. Elantra sales rose 18% in August and are up 15% this year.

In spite of a 20% drop, Volkswagen Golf sales were strong enough for a global top seller to move up to 15th spot after finishing 20th in July. This bumped the BMW 3-Series down a spot. The Nissan Sentra slid from twelfth to 20th. 

Volkswagen Jetta sales rose 7% in August - the Jetta was Canada's sixth-ranked car in August and is the sixth-ranked car going into September. 
2014 Nissan Versa Note blue
Canada's top subcompact, the Hyundai Accent, was challenged by the surging Nissan Versa, which ended August just 400 sales back. Year-to-date, the Accent leads its twin, the Kia Rio, by 2313 sales. Another subcompact, the 14th-ranked Ford Fiesta, reported an 84% year-over-year increase but remains down sharply this year.

In the midsize race, the year-to-date leader, Ford's Fusion, ended August as the top-selling midsize sedan and Canada's ninth-best-selling car overall, 480 sales up on the Honda Accord.
