Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – February 2016


2015 Kia Rondo

Think all of the most rapidly declining new vehicles in Canada are likely discontinued coupes, about-to-be-replaced sedans, and high-priced sports cars? 

Think again. 

On GCBC’s list of Canada’s 20 fastest-falling new vehicles in Canada in February 2016, there are discontinued models – Honda Crosstour, Scion xB, Mazda 2 as examples – as well as high-end sports cars – Dodge Viper and Audi R8 – and there are soon-to-be-replaced cars, too – Prius and Q60. 

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – February 2016 YTD

But there are also new vehicles which simply sold far less often in February 2016 than they did in February 2015. Many are conventional passenger cars in a market that’s increasingly turning away from traditional sedans: Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Sonata, Acura RLX, Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300. Others are less conventional passenger cars which compete in smaller markets: Lexus RC and Fiat 500, for instance.

And then there are also mini-MPVs such as the Kia Rondo and Mazda 5, Canadian sales of which plunged 69% in February 2016.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
