August 2016 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 147 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - Every Car Ranked

Each of Canada's six best-selling passenger cars reported declining sales in August 2016. Year-over-year, the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3, Chevrolet Cruze, and Volkswagen Jetta combined for a 13% decline compared with August 2015.

Yet Canadian sales of the recently revamped Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra are on the upswing through the first two-thirds of 2016. As a result, the perennial leaders have increased their share of the car market from 15.1% through the first eight months of 2015 to 17.4% this year.

It's reasonable to think Civic sales could climb higher next year. It's the belief of American Honda that the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback won't cannibalize sales of the Civic sedan and coupe. If that holds true, the roughly 7500 Civic Hatchbacks that arrive from Honda's Swindon, England, assembly plant on an annual basis will only improve upon the Civic's already lofty total. 


Honda Canada is on track to sell more than 66,500 Civics in calendar year 2016, the highest total for the Civic – Canada's best-selling car in 18 consecutive years – since 2008.

Hyundai, meanwhile, has already revealed the new i30, the car that will become the next Hyundai Elantra GT. With the Scion iM becoming the Toyota Corolla iM for 2017 and a hatchback version of the Chevrolet Cruze forthcoming, Canada's five best-selling cars will all be available in flexible hatchback form.

On the whole, Canada's passenger car market took a 9% dive in August 2016 and fell 8%, or nearly 35,000 units, through the first two-thirds of 2016. 

Cars now account for slightly less than 35% of the overall Canadian new vehicle market. SUVs and crossovers form 39% of all new vehicle sales..
