April 2014 Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 140 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - Every Car Ranked

2014 Honda Civic Coupe Si
Just five years ago, 52.8% of the new vehicles registered in Canada in April 2009 were passenger cars. Five years prior, in April 2004, 57% of the new vehicles registered in Canada were passenger cars. According to the Automotive News Data Center, only 43.6% of the new vehicles registered in Canada in April 2014 were cars.

This isn't just a market share conundrum, one in which a growing industry sells more trucks and SUVs and crossovers as car sales level off. Canadians bought and leased 15,853 more new vehicles in April 2014 than in April 2004, a 10% increase. But sales of cars, specifically, were down 16%, a near 15,000-unit drop.

However, some things don't change. 6.9% of the cars sold in the first four months of 2004 were Honda Civics. That figure rose to 7.6% over the last four months, startling dominance for a product with dozens of potential rivals.

The Civic is Canada's best-selling car, as it has been in each of the last 16 years. But during the month of April, the Toyota Corolla grabbed the top spot with real authority, outselling the second-ranked Hyundai Elantra and third-ranked Civic by nearly 1000 units. 

Every one of Canada's seven top-selling cars are direct competitors. Together, they account. Nearly four out of every ten cars sold in Canada comes from that group of seven. Midsizers are led by the ninth-ranked Ford Fusion, sales of which are sliding on a consistent basis. Ford sells more than 2.5 Escapes per Fusion.

New to the list this month are Nissan's ultra-cheap Micra and the returning Audi A3, now sold in sedan form. The A3 ranks 103rd on year-to-date terms. The Micra ranks 99th. 
2014 Mazda 6
The Mazda 6 Was Canada's 34th-Best-Selling Car At This Time In 2013 But
Has Fallen To The 52nd Spot Due To A 56% Year-Over-Year Decline
At this time last year, Canadians weren't able to a Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, now the 50th-best-selling car in the country. 

Nor were the Mitsubishi Mirage, Fiat 500L, BMW 4-Series, Volvo V60, Jaguar F-Type, BMW 2-Series, Cadillac ELR, or Kia K900 on sale. Respectively, they're Canada's 41st, 48th, 64th, 91st, 111th, 113th, 138th, and 139th-best-selling cars.

Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort passenger cars by April volume by clicking the April 2014 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. 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. Hybrid sales data for every Toyota or Lexus variant can be found here.

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.

Red font indicates year-over-year declining sales
* 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 has been marketing the Viper as an SRT, but we show it here with Dodge so when you click the Car column header, you will see the Viper with with like-branded products. In fact, FCA recently decided to cancel SRT as a brand unto its own.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 3.2% to 726 in April, down 11.7% to 2036 YTD.
† Mini Cooper includes sales of the Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman, Coupe, Roadster, and Paceman.
‡ Total Genesis sales: up 14.1% to 355 in April, up 4.4% to 883 YTD.
± Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: up 83.4% to 365 in April, up 54% to 1275 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, Rolls-Royce are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands during the first four months of 2014 were 68, 20, and 24, respectively. Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models. It is believed that Tesla sold 119 copies of their Model S in March 2014, but Tesla doesn't issue monthly sales reports. The ANDC estimate for Tesla April sales in Canada was 50 units.
