Small Car Sales In Canada - September 2015 YTD

Canada's top-selling car, the Honda Civic, posted a modest 1% increase in September 2015, enough to generate 1900 more sales than the next-best-selling Hyundai Elantra.

The Civic will end 2015 as Canada's most popular car for the 18th consecutive year. As Honda Canada launches the tenth-generation model for model year 2016, sales of the current model are likely to spike in clear-out mode just as the new model arrives to entice more buyers with a big marketing campaign.

During the first three quarters of 2015, however, the Civic and most of its rivals sold less often than they did during the same period last year. Granted, most are fading faster than the Civic, which isn't losing market share. 

Exceptions are obviously rare: sales of the Kia Forte and Nissan Sentra are up 2%, total Subaru Impreza volume is up 12%, and the Volkswagen Golf posted a 95% increase.

* 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.
