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


2013 Honda Civic sedan red

Canadian car sales have been growing at a snail’s pace as the minivan market shrinks, the pickup truck market booms, and SUVs and crossovers grab more and more market share. But in November, by 2013’s standards, the car market enjoyed a particularly good month. 

According to the Automotive News Data Centercar sales grew 3.8%. Desrosiers says car sales were up 3.5%. Structured as they are in the massive, sortable list below, with the Nissan Juke counted as a crossover, for example, and the Volvo XC70 listed as a car, 148 nameplates collectively produced a 4.1% improvement.

2013 Honda Accord sedan red

Numerous top sellers produced increases far above that 4.1% average. Canada’s top-selling Honda Civic, a car which accounts for 8.3% of Canada’s new car market, was up 13% in November 2013. Sales of the Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3, Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Nissan Versa all shot up at least 20%.

The Civic owned 8.1% of Canada’s car market at this time last year. With 2355 extra sales from their compact, 3224 extra Fit subcompact sales, and 7560 extra midsize Accord sales, Honda dealers can’t have even noticed the CR-Z and Insight losses. Those 13,139 extra Civic/Fit/Accord sales stand out for another reason: industry-wide, car sales are up by less than 12,000 units in 2013.

2012 Honda Fit Sport red

The biggest November increases in Canada’s car arena: Porsche Cayman sales jumped 1400%, the Lincoln MKZ rose 539%, Toyota Avalon sales were up 511%, and the Cadillac ATS was up 462%.

There were exciting improvements introduced in last month’s rankings 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 Acura CSX and Cadillac STS, 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 November volume by clicking the November 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 it’s shown 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 40.1% to 449 in November, down 20.5% to 7492 YTD.
† Mini Cooper includes sales of the Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman, Coupe, Roadster, and Paceman.
‡ Total Genesis sales: up 1.1% to 188 in November, down 3.8% to 2764 YTD.
± Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: Up 88.9% to 272 in November; down 0.9% to 2861 YTD. Total G sedan and Q50 sales: Up 115% to 245 in November, up 6.9% to 2373 YTD.
¤ Automakers release sales figures for the E-Class and CLS-Class together, S-Class and CL-Class together, RL and RLX together, Passat and CC 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 November were 18 and 4, respectively, 196 and 42 YTD . Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models. It is believed that Tesla sold 504 copies of their Model S during the first nine months of 2013, but Tesla doesn’t issue monthly sales reports.
