Midsize Car Sales In Canada - September 2015 YTD

2015 Toyota Camry silver

Although the leader of the pack, Toyota's Camry, produced a 15% year-over-year gain and sold more strongly throughout the first three quarters of 2015 than during the same period one year ago, the rest of the category isn't keeping up.


Rather than Altimas, consumers are buying and leasing Nissan Rogues. Rather than Mazda 6s, consumers are opting instead for a Mazda CX-5. Instead of the Honda Accord, buyers now favour the Honda CR-V.

As a result, the Camry's share of the market is soaring. In September 2014, for example, Toyota owned 12.6% of the Canadian intermediate car segment. 

Fast forward one year and the Camry's market share stood at 16.9% in September 2015, a gain of more than four percentage points.

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 Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too... 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.
