Small Car Sales In Canada - June 2016 YTD

2017 Hyundai Elantra red
Canadian compact car sales fell 4% in June 2016, the final month in a first-half which saw Canadian compact car sales fall 4%. 

The losses put up by the massive segment – 17% of all new vehicle sales so far this year – have occurred despite significant gains from the two most popular cars in the country.

The top-selling Honda Civic and second-ranked Hyundai Elantra, both of which are all-new this year, earned 34% of their category in June 2016, up from 28% at this point one year ago.

Aside from the discontinued Buick Verano's jump, the low-volume Mitsubishi Lancer's improvement, the Nissan Sentra's 8% uptick, and the Volkswagen Golf's unexpected 4% rise, most competitors are falling hard and fast.

The Detroit trio – Cruze, Dart, Focus – combined for a 30% loss in the first-half of 2016. The Mazda 3, once the prime candidate to become the Honda Civic's successor as Canada's best-selling car, is down 24%. The aging Volkswagen Jetta tumbled 29% in 2016's first six months and is on track to end 2016 as the second-best-selling Volkswagen in Canada for the first time since 2010.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown.
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 Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small SUVs, too, and the Acura ILX shown with mainstream cars is also displayed 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.
