Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - May 2016

2016 Honda Civic sedan white
Although Canada's second, third, fourth, and fifth-best-selling cars all sold less often in May 2016 than in May 2015, the top-selling Honda Civic posted a 10% year-over-year sales increase. For the Civic, this produced 8240 May sales, the first month since March 2011 in which Honda Canada sold more than 8000 Civics.

11% of the passenger cars sold in Canada in May were Civics. South of the border, the second-ranked Civic and best-selling Toyota Camry combined for 11% market share among passenger cars. 

It wasn't just the Civic's top-selling rivals which declined. The majority of Canada's most popular cars sold less often this May than last. 13 of the top 20 cars posted declining sales in May 2016, a month in which the Canadian car market slid 13%. 

Some of the harshest declines were reported by some of the most popular cars. The Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus, Canada's two-top-selling Detroit car nameplates, tumbled 58% and 42%, respectively. 

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling cars can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well.
