From the class-leading Toyota Camry's 1% drop to 1862 units – only 22 fewer sales than in April 2015 – to the Chrysler 200's 67% drop worth 1176 lost sales, midsize cars bore the brunt of consumer passenger car rejection in April 2016.

And here's the kicker: auto sales in Canada have never been higher.

Canadian car dealers sold more new vehicles to consumers, businesses, and government agencies (and Americans?) in April 2016 than at any point in history. But 39% of the 200,600 new vehicles were SUVs and crossovers; only 36% were cars. 

Meanwhile, of the roughly 72,000 new cars sold in Canada in April 2016, only 13% came from this core midsize category, down from 17% in April 2015.

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 Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too... 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.
