Midsize Car Sales In Canada – November 2013 YTD


2013 Ford Fusion
Fusion Sales Continue To Rise, But It Hasn’t Been
The Class Leader On A Monthly Basis Since August

As the Chevrolet Malibu continued its slow recovery, as the year-to-date leading Ford Fusion reported a 45% increase, as Hyundai Sonata sales jumped 56%, Volkswagen Passat sales climbed 35%, and November’s best-selling Toyota Camry rose 24%, Canada’s midsize car market slid 1.4%.

Blame can be placed on the Chrysler 200’s 346-unit decline, the Honda Accord’s 132-unit drop, the Kia Optima’s near halving of sales, the Mazda 6’s 72% plunge, and yet more declines from the Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy, and Buick Regal. 

Overall, midsize car sales fell by just 126 units. Measured by year-over-year decline, the Mazda 6 was Canada’s ninth-worst-selling vehicle. Though particularly extreme, the 6’s November drop wasn’t a complete anomaly: sales are down 12% this year.

Nor was the Optima’s 48% drop complete out of character for the midsize Kia, sales of which are down 22% in 2013. 

Indeed, the Chrysler 200’s 41% decrease was just one part of the 200’s 16% year-to-date drop. The 200 will be replaced in 2014.

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 Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too… 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.
