Canada small car sales chart October 2014
The core compact sector accounted for 48% of Canadian new car sales in October 2014. Midsize cars attracted just 15% of car buyers. Yet in Chrysler Canada's stores, midsize cars generated 53% of car sales in October, while the Dart produced just 16% of the automaker's October car volume.

This tells two stories. The first? Chrysler 200 sales are strong because it's a nice new car, but also because it's priced ridiculously low. Really, truly, very low. Second? The 200 clearly eats into the Dart's territory, not that the Dart has ever been capable of broadly expanding its borders. 

In a category where the class-leading Honda Civic averages more than 5700 monthly sales in Canada, Dodge has only sold more than 1000 Darts on six occasions in the 29 months in which its been on the market, and only once this year. 

Yet the Chrysler Group was Canada's largest seller of automobiles in October 2014, ahead of the Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Toyota, and Hyundai-Kia. Pickup trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans accounted for 84% of the company's sales last month. Cars, including the Civic and surging Fit - Canada's second-best-selling subcompact in October - bring in two-thirds of the Honda brand's volume.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown.
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 Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small SUVs, too, and the Acura ILX shown with mainstream cars is also displayed with luxury cars... 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.
