June 2014 Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 142 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2014 Jaguar F-type coupe

The Honda Civic is halfway to ending a 17th consecutive year as Canada’s best-selling car, an impressive achievement considering the depth of competition faced by the Honda.

Sales of the Mazda 3, Canada’s fourth-best-selling car, are up 8% this year. The 3 was Canada’s second-best-selling car in 2010, and it’s a much better car now. In fact, GCBC’s verdict, “The new Mazda 3 is the best compact car you can buy,” suggests that the 3 is a challenging rival for the Civic, indeed. Yet the Civic has outsold the 3 by an average of 1644 units per month over the last six months.

The third-ranked Toyota Corolla was Canada’s top-selling car in April 2014. Corolla volume in Canada is up 16% through the first half of 2014, but the Civic has outsold the Corolla by more than 5000 units already this year.

At this point one year ago, the best-selling car in Canada was the Hyundai Elantra. Elantra volume has decreased in 2014, and the Civic leads the second-ranked Elantra by 3760 units heading into July.

It’s not just the top sellers that are movin’ on up, either. The 12th-ranked Nissan Versa ranked 28th among cars at 2013’s halfway point. Honda’s own Fit has moved up from the 37th spot to the 15th position, claiming 2781 more buyers in Honda showrooms than it had  during the first six months of 2013.

Yet Civic sales are rising. We bring up the subject often in Canada, but only because Honda Canada has so aggressively pursued the title of Canada’s best-selling car and succeeded in its pursuit with such consistency. Moreover, it’s not just the consistency, but the degree to which the Civic dominates that makes it a deserving headline grabber.

Surely other, more exciting and enticing cars deserve a note as well, right? Jaguar has sold 256 F-Types this year – it’s the brand’s best seller – and Chevrolet Corvette volume is nearly seven times stronger than it was last year.

There were important improvements introduced late last year in the GCBC’s rankings of all new vehicles. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increases/decreases from last year. As a result, we now include vehicles like the Honda Insight and Suzuki Kizashi, nameplates which collected sales during the first six months 2014 but not during the same period one year later. 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 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by June volume by clicking the June 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.
