Small Car Sales In Canada - May 2015 YTD

2014 Subaru Impreza white
Honda Canada sold more Civics in May 2015 than at any time since March 2011 and therefore grew the car's lead as Canada's best-selling car to 3138 units heading into June.

The Civic accounted for nearly 9%, nearly three-quarters of Honda car sales, and 47% of overall Honda brand sales.

But even with the Civic's growth - and the Volkswagen Golf's massive surge - Canadian compact car sales slid 2% in May 2015 and are down 3% so far this year.

Subcompact car sales have taken an even harder hit. Sales of the Hyundai Accent-led subcompact category plunged 25% in May 2015, and the Accent was the only subcompact to post a year-over-year Canadian sales improvement. 

Canadians are, of course, buying small cars. But many of those small cars are now called crossovers. Because the Mazda CX-3, for example, is slightly elevated, offers all-wheel-drive, and has black strips around its wheelwells, it's not a car nor does it appeal to the same buyer as the Mazda 2. In its first (abbreviated) month on the market, Mazda sold 717 CX-3s. The Mazda 2 hasn't sold that well since February 2012.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank small cars of all kinds any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

* 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.
