The category's top sellers from Canada's top-selling manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, lost more than half their February volume. Dodge Charger sales fell 56%; Chrysler 300 volume was down 54%.

True, overall Canadian passenger car volume is falling, as well. But the 4% loss across the passenger car sector is downright healthy compared with the nosedive achieved by large cars.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes - Hyundai USA doesn't yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe - the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
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. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
