Large Car Sales In Canada - December 2013 And 2013 Year End

Sales of large mainstream brand cars in Canada fell 20% to just 23,187 units in 2013, just 1.3% of the Canadian auto industry's new vehicle sales volume. 
GM's decline - LaCrosse volume was cut in half, as was Chevrolet Impala volume -  brought 5151 fewer sales to the category's total than in 2012. The class-leading Chrysler 300, which trailed the more fleet-friendly Chevrolet Impala in 2012, slid 7% in 2013.

Ford Taurus sales were down 14%. 

Hyundai Genesis sedan sales fell 12%. 

Nissan Maxima sales fell 26%. 

An extra 195 Kia Cadenza sales (just three in December) meant little to the segment. Dodge's 530-unit Charger increase only made up for 43% of the Buick Lucerne's loss. 

The Toyota Avalon's near-tripling of Canadian sales volume sounds terrific, but the Avalon is still a very rare car in Canada; it ranks 78th among cars overall.
