May 2015 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 144 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2015 Honda Civic grey

Canadian sales of the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Mazda 3, Chevrolet Cruze, and Mazda 3 were lower, in every case, through the first five months of 2015 than during the same period one year earlier.

Why is this important? Those are the six best-selling cars in Canada so far this year.

The Civic broke the trend during the month of May, specifically. Civic volume last month rose to Honda Canada’s highest level since March 2011. With 7467 sales, the Civic accounted for nearly 9% of Canada’s car market.

Renewed interest in the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, released midway through 2014, continues to be the biggest factor in keeping Canada’s car market from a noteworthy decline. Because of the Golf’s additional 7033 sales through the first five months of 2015, Canadian car sales are flat, rather than down 2%.
