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


2015 Kia Soul EV blue

Canadian sales of passenger cars took an especially sharp dive in the month of July. After 2015’s first-half saw car sales in Canada fall 2%, the 10% dive in July 2015 built upon June’s 11% drop to drag car sales down by more than 3% through the first seven months of 2015.

The decline is all the more noticeable because Canada’s overall auto industry is once again on track to set an all-time sales record in the 2015 calendar year. With five months remaining, the industry is 25,000 sales ahead of last year’s pace.

We certainly can’t thank the car market for the surge in overall sales. The category-leading Honda Civic, Canada’s most popular car in each of the last 17 years, is down 5% in 2015, a figure worsened in July by last month’s 10% drop. 

Six of Canada’s seven best-selling cars are in decline. Only the second-ranked Toyota Corolla’s modest 1% increase bucks the trend.

Furthermore, subtracting the eighth-best-selling Volkswagen Golf’s reveals a more accurate look at the car market. Setting aside that car’s massive uptick – it was hardly available in the first-half of last year – displays a car market that’s down 5.3% through the first seven months of 2015.

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by July 2015 volume by clicking the July 2015 column header, or you can rank them by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format.
