April 2015 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 143 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2015 Volkswagen Golf Wagon

Canada’s six best-selling cars all posted decreased sales through the first four months of 2015. 

The Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Mazda 3, Volkswagen Jetta, and Chevrolet Cruze combined to own 33% of Canada’s passenger car market through the first one-third of 2015, but that was down from 36% in the same period a year ago because their collective volume decreased 6%. 

Overall, car sales were flat through the first-third of 2015 and actually rose slightly in April, specifically.

The Civic is on track to finish 2015 as the best-selling car for the 18th consecutive year. The real battle will be between the Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra, which are fighting a close battle for second spot. 

If the best sellers are routinely posting declines and the car market isn’t sliding, which cars are holding overall decreases at bay? The seventh-ranked Volkswagen Golf has added 5574 sales between January and April, year-over-year. Nissan Micra volume increased by 3489 units, year-over-year. Another 2000 sales have been added by vehicles which were simply not on sale during the first four months of 2015 via nameplates like the TLX, 4-Series, RC, i3, 918, and 4C.
