Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – October 2015


2016 BMW 3-Series

Four out of every 100 new vehicles sold in Canada in October 2015 were Honda Civics. One out of every ten passenger cars sold in Canada in October 2015 were Honda Civics. Four out of every ten Hondas sold in Canada in October 2015 were Civics. 

Put another way, the Honda Civic was Canada’s best-selling car in October 2015, just as it is nearly every month. Extending its lead over its nearest rival by 3036 units in October alone, the Civic now leads the Toyota Corolla by 13,673 sales heading into the final one-sixth of the calendar year, a year that will be the 18th consecutive in which the Civic has topped Canada’s passenger car leaderboard.

As the clear-out of remaining ninth-gen Civics begins in earnest at the tail end of this year – the tenth-gen car is thoroughly all-new – sales rose 6% in October, year-over-year. But the Civic and its chief rivals are all selling less often this year than last.
