Sporty Car Sales In Canada - January 2016

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD S
Yeah, all-wheel-drive helps.

The Jaguar F-Type's Canadian sales nearly tripled to 31 units in January 2016, the same total achieved by the Mercedes-Benz SLK, Porsche Boxster, and Porsche Cayman combined

The F-Type wasn't initially marketed as an all-wheel-drive, winter all-rounder. But the $96,500 F-Type S AWD Coupe and F-Type R AWD Coupe, along with droptop versions of both, give the Jaguar sports car much broader appeal.

Speaking of winter appeal, American muscle cars lose much of theirs, along with noteworthy inventory, in the middle of a Canadian winter. 

Ford Mustang sales jumped 59% to 232 units in January 2016, a far greater total than the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger combined to achieve. 

But for all three rear-wheel-drive cars, these totals are far lower than they'll achieve in March, April, May, and June. 

The all-wheel-drive Subaru WRX/STI, however, is not nearly so slowed in the midst of winter. January sales jumped 53% to 253 units, not just an excellent January result but a better total than Subaru Canada achieved in six of 2015's 12 months, as well.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank sports cars, coupes, GTs, roadsters, and convertibles any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

^ Mini sales include everything except the Countryman.

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 Audi A5 here and 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. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don't know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
