2014 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

Having expanded its year-to-date lead by 3324 units over the Hyundai Elantra in September alone, the Civic leads the second-best-selling car in Canada by nearly 12,000 units heading into the fourth quarter of 2014.

The differences between the Canadian and U.S. markets are often stark and often unpredictable. Canadians buy more minivans, yes, but also more pickup trucks. More in keeping with traditional priorities and tastes, the Volkswagen Golf doubled its September 2013 volume to 2073 units last month, enough for a seventh-place results in September 2014. The Golf was America's 48th-best-selling car in September. 

The Nissan Micra, not even available in the United States, was Canada's 18th-best-selling car in September 2014. The Hyundai Sonata was Canada's best-selling midsize car for the third consecutive month in September.

More in line with the U.S. industry but out of character for a Canadian market that's gradually lessened its desire for midsize GM vehicles, the Chevrolet Malibu tripled its September volume to 1168 units, good enough for 15th place in these results. The Malibu ranked tenth in America.
