Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – September 2014


2013 Dodge Avenger blacktop

Predictably, defunct and cancelled new vehicle nameplates led the list of Canada’s worst-selling vehicles in September 2014. 

• Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – September 2014 YTD

The Dodge Avenger, Nissan Quest, and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG have either met the end of their run or will do so shortly. Likewise, the Acura TL and Subaru Tribeca – Canada’s fifth and seventh-worst-selling vehicles when measured by year-over-year decline – have been put out to pasture.

Measured by total volume, eight different vehicles generated less volume than the Avenger in September, including high-end sedans from Hyundai (down 50% to four sales) and the Equus’s partner from Kia, the K900.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
