Year-to-date, Sonata sales are down 24%, but July volume rose to the highest Sonata level since April 2011. Canada’s year-to-date midsize leader, the Ford Fusion, fell 21% in July and is down 15% so far this year.

The Fusion’s decrease is completely symptomatic of the segment’s overall decline. Midsize car sales are down 19% in Canada this year. 

Only the very low-volume Subaru Legacy and the somewhat more successful Volkswagen Passat (Canada’s seventh-best-selling midsize car last month) have reported year-over-year increases.

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. 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.
