Midsize Car Sales In Canada - August 2016 YTD

Canada's best-selling midsize car reported a modest year-over-year sales increase in August 2016 to further strengthen its status as the king of the shrinking Canadian midsize hill. Toyota Camry volume is down 3% this year, but more than 1400 were sold in August, 300 more midsize cars than the next-best-selling Hyundai Sonata managed.

Not all candidates for the intermediate sedan buyer's attention are crumbling. Newly launched for 2016, the Chevrolet Malibu is up 11% so far this year, though August volume tumbled 43% compared with August 2015. 

The Malibu is likely to post a five-year annual sales high by year's end, though sales will be down roughly 44% compared with 2006.

Nissan Altima sales are rising, as well. Through the first two-thirds of 2016, sales are up 16%. But the Altima is on track for fewer than 9000 sales in calendar year 2016. Nissan Canada averaged 13,700 between 2005 and 2014.

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.
