2013 Acura ILX
Acura ILX Sales Fell 61% In October But
Are Up 27% Over The Last Six Months
In October 2013, during a year of decline, Canadian sales of subcompact cars once again grew. September subcompact sales rose 15.5% as the Mitsubishi Mirage tagged along and the six top sellers all reported year-over-year increases. 

In October, Honda Fit sales nearly doubled, Kia Rio sales shot up 47%, and the category rose 6.2% despite the Nissan Versa's 4% decline. 

The Versa was Canada's top-selling subcompact car in October 2013. Year-to-date, the Hyundai Accent leads the Kia Rio by 3006 sales; the Rio leads the Versa by 3996 units. Combined, the Accent, Rio, and Versa own 2.8% of the Canadian automobile market.

Canada's best-selling small car, the Honda Civic, owns 3.7% of Canada's new vehicle market. The Civic is Canada's best-selling car overall, as well, selling three times as often as Canada's top-selling midsize car, the Ford Fusion. 

October was the fourth consecutive month, and the sixth month this year, that Honda Canada sold more than 6000 Civics. Honda had done so only seven times in the previous three years.

Among small cars, none produced a greater year-over-year Canadian increase in October than the Chevrolet Spark. Its 189% jump equalled 142 extra sales in GM Canada showrooms. Among continuing cars, no decline was worse than the Acura ILX's 61% drop. GCBC also shows the ILX with small luxury brand cars, where its decline wasn't the worst. Acura TSX sales, for example, slid 76%.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank subcompacts, compacts, city cars and all types of small cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page. You'll notice that the + icon has been removed from year-over-year increases, but you can still identify year-over-year declines with the - symbol and red font.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown.
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.
