The two-door Ford sports car was Canada's 14th-best-selling car in April 2016, ahead of mainstream contenders such as the Honda Accord, Nissan Sentra, and Ford's own Fusion. Combined, the Mustang's two primary challengers – new Camaro and recently refreshed Challenger – produced 817 Canadian sales in April. 

Ford sold 1380 Mustangs, a 67% year-over-year improvement.

The Mustang wasn't the only sporting mode of transportation to report relatively massive April sales in Canada.

Meanwhile, Subaru's WRX/STI sedan duo likewise produced its best-ever month result with 525 sales, more than the Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, and Volkswagen Golf GTI combined.

^ 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.
