Small Car Sales In Canada - August 2015 YTD

2015 Honda Fit grey
Honda Canada's Civic continued in August 2015 its reign over Canada's compact car segment and the passenger car category as a whole. The Civic produced one out of every ten Canadian car sales last month and one out of every five compact car sales.

A multitude of Civic competitors were therefore tasked with fighting over 80% of the segment's sales, and most of those sales went the way of the Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla,  Mazda 3, and Volkswagen Jetta.

Compact car sales are falling faster than the overall passenger car market but nowhere near as quickly as the decline reported by subcompact cars. 

Only the Honda Fit and Toyota Prius C interrupted a subcompact category which tumbled 26% last month, a loss of 2191 units for the segment during a year in which subcompact sales are down by more than 15,000 units. 

Small cars are, however, donating their platforms to urban crossovers that are picking up the slack. The next Mazda 2's offspring, Mazda's CX-3, produced 906 sales in August 2015. The Honda Fit-based HR-V led all subcompact SUVs with 1712 sales last month.

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.
