October 2013 Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 148 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - Every Car Ranked

2014 Volvo S80
The Volvo S80's 75% YOY Decline In
2013 Is Worst Among Continuing Cars
Canadian car sales are only slightly better than stagnant in 2013, but October may have marked the beginning of a turnaround. Helped along by very strong Honda Civic sales (up 36%), Canadian new car sales grew 4.5% according to the list of cars in the table below, 4.2% according to Automotive News, and 4.7% according to Desrosiers Automotive Reports.

Although it's just one car - in two bodystyles - the Civic matters greatly. In October 2012, the Civic, Canada's best-selling car, generated 8.1% of the Canadian auto industry's passenger car volume. That figure rose to 10.5% in October 2013. Yes, one out of every ten new cars sold in Canada last month were Honda Civics.


2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Red
Canadian Sales Of The Corvette Quintupled In October
The Civic wasn't the only car to eat into Hyundai's Elantra total. Sales of the Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3, and Volkswagen Jetta shot up, as well. Mazda's clear-out of existing 3s, paired with the arrival of the hot new 2014 3, provided a 52% year-over-year increase.

October wasn't a great month Canada's best-selling midsize car, however, as Ford Fusion volume slid 15% to 1083 units. That was the lowest Fusion output since February. Although the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord surged past the Fusion in October, its year-to-date lead of 2389 units seems safe. 

2012 Toyota Prius C
Sales Of Hybrid Passenger Cars At Toyota Canada
Were Down 17% In October; Prius C Sales Jumped 97%
October was a good month for Canada's best-selling subcompact, the second month of growth after a year of consecutive year-over-year declines. The Hyundai Accent's year-to-date lead over its partner vehicle, the second-ranked Kia Rio, now stands at 3006 sales, although the Nissan Versa appears to be the greater danger now that the Note is here.

Canada's top-selling premium brand nameplate, the BMW 3-Series, now sits in showrooms alongside its renamed coupe and convertible offshoot, the 4-Series. October was the first month in which BMW Canada reported 4-Seires sales, all 191 of them. Combining the 4-Series with the 3-Series, as the 3-Series coupe and convertible have historically been, would bring the 3-Series' total up to 11,125 units.

There are exciting improvements in this month's ranking of vehicle sales. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increases/decreases from last year. As a result, we've also included vehicles like the Ford Crown Victoria and Lexus HS250h, nameplates which collected sales in 2012 but not this year. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you're on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by October volume by clicking the October 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.
¹ Chrysler markets the Viper not as a Dodge but as an SRT, but we show it here as a Dodge so you can see the Viper with like-minded products when you sort vehicles alphabetically using the Car column header.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 18.8% to 7043 YTD, down 22.8% to 597 in October.
† Mini Cooper includes sales of the Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman, Coupe, Roadster, and Paceman.
‡ Total Genesis sales: down 4.1% to 2576 YTD, up 13.8% to 222 in October.
± Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: down 5.6% to 2589 YTD, up 27% to 292 in October. Total G sedan and Q50 sales: up 1.1% to 2128 YTD, up 46.7% to 267 in October.
¤ Automakers release sales figures for the E-Class and CLS-Class together, S-Class and CL-Class together, RL and RLX together.
º Audi's A4 sales data includes sales of the Allroad.
Sales data for brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in September were 18 and 4, respectively, 178 and 38 YTD . Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models. It is believed that Tesla sold 440 copies of their Model S during the first eight months of 2013, but Tesla doesn't issue monthly sales reports.
