But instead of the January leader, Hyundai’s Elantra, claiming the top spot, the best-selling compact car in Canada in February was the Toyota Corolla, sales of which increased by two units.

Compact car sales overall slid 11% thanks to declines from the Elantra and Civic, plus sharp drops from the Kia Forte and Dodge Dart, among others.

Subcompact sales fell 12% despite a 34-month high in Toyota Prius C sales and an 86% increase in Honda Fit volume.

The Chevrolet Spark, Smart Fortwo, Fiat 500,  and Hyundai Veloster both lost more than half their volume compared with February 2014.

* 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.
