January 2015 Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 141 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2015 Toyota Camry XSE red

Predictably, car sales in Canada decreased in January. The 3% loss from January 2014 levels brought about total market share for passenger cars of just 36.6%, down from 39.1% in January 2014.

From leaders like the Honda Civic (which fell 31%) to midpack cars like the Chevrolet Sonic (which slid 41%) to high-end, low-volume luxury cars like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class (down 51%), decreased volume for specific nameplates were common in Canada in January 2015.

But there were cars that improved upon their January 2014 totals. The top-selling Hyundai Elantra jumped 15% to its best January ever. 

The second, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth-best-selling cars contributed an extra 2112 sales as the Volkswagen Golf more than tripled its January volume, as the Honda Fit nearly tripled, and as the Toyota Camry, Canada’s best-selling midsize car last month, jumped 61%.

But the trend that suggests car sales in Canada will form a smaller and smaller portion of the overall industry’s volume is a longstanding one. Moreover, even if car sales increase, it’s unlikely that they’ll increase as rapidly as pickup trucks (up 10% in January) and utility vehicles (up 2% in January).
