Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – December 2015


2015 Kia Soul yellow

In December 2015, for a tenth consecutive month, the Honda Civic was the best-selling car in Canada.

In 2015, for an astonishing 18th consecutive year, and despite a 2% year-over-year sales decline, the Honda Civic was Canada’s best-selling car.

The Civic’s 2% drop – 1.7%, to be precise – was modest by the standards of both its chief rivals and the overarching Canadian passenger car market. 

Indeed, in December, as Civic sales slid 1% during the clear-out of remaining MY2015 Civics and the launch of an all-new MY2016 Civic, Canada’s four top-selling Civic alternatives all declined more sharply. And Canada’s car market plunged 15% overall, losing more than 7000 sales and claiming less than one-third of the overall industry.

Bright spots? The Golf outsold the Jetta in Volkswagen showrooms thanks to a 30% year-over-year uptick. Accord, Altima, and Soul volume also increased, though the Accord and Altima were down in 2015 as a whole.
