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


2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Total new vehicle sales increased by more than 2% in August 2015 despite the 6500-unit decline among passenger cars in Canada.

All eight of the eight best-selling cars in Canada are selling less often in 2015 than in 2014’s first eight months. Those eight cars – Civic, Corolla, Elantra, 3, Cruze, Jetta, Accent, Focus – are down 8% so far this year, a loss of nearly 18,000 units.

Those eight best sellers aren’t the only cars struggling in Canada this year. Dodge Dart volume is down 60% through the first eight months of 2015. Ford Fiesta volume is down 45%. The Nissan Versa, Kia Rio, and Kia Optima all posted losses of at least 30%. 

The exceptions are notable. Volkswagen Golf sales have more than doubled this year, albeit from a very low level in early 2014. The Toyota Camry, Canada’s top-selling midsize car, is up 14% in 2015. Kia Soul sales are soaring. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Canada’s top-selling premium brand car, has recorded a 65% year-over-year increase.

There’s nevertheless no denying that Canadians are becoming as interested in SUVs and crossovers as they are in cars. Shuffle a few vehicles from one list to the other and, in August, SUVS/crossovers outsold cars. 

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by August 2015 volume by clicking the August 2015 column header, or you can rank them by improvements or declines using the % columns. 

medianet_width=’468′; medianet_height= ’60’; medianet_crid=’481536334′; 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.
