September 2015 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 145 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2016 Honda Civic sedan grey

Canadian passenger car sales slid 4% during the first three quarters of 2015, a year-over-year decline equal to approximately 27,000 sales.

All eight of Canada’s most popular cars, from the soon-to-be-replaced Honda Civic to the leading subcompact from Hyundai, have posted fewer sales in the first nine months of 2015 than during the same period last year. Together, that group of eight has combined for a 7%, 18,569-unit decrease.

Yet overall Canadian new vehicle sales have grown to a record-setting pace for the third consecutive year as the gains produced by SUVs, crossovers, and pickup trucks more than offset the losses from cars and minivans.

There is certainly the chance that a sudden fuel price increase could incite some Canadians to turn back to the more efficient cars, but that possibility becomes increasingly remote as many of the “light truck” offerings that are powering the SUV/CUV market forward – Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, for example – aren’t guzzlers by any means.

But new product could help. Honda is prepping the launch of a thoroughly reengineered Civic, the tenth-generation of the car that’s been Canada’s top seller in each of the last 17 years, the car that’s already secured an 18th consecutive victory with three months remaining in 2015. A more efficient, roomier Civic with more eye-catching styling (like it or not) may well provide a boost to the nameplate which generates 8.5% of all car sales in Canada.

Speaking of new product, this list of cars sold in Canada grew by one model in September with the arrival of the Scion iM. 254 copies of the iM were reported sold by Scion’s parent company, Toyota.

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by September 2015 volume by clicking the September 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.
