September 2016 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 148 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - Every Car Ranked

The Honda Civic's Canadian sales volume slid 12% in September 2016, but the Civic still outsold its nearest rival by more than 1600 units, driving its year-to-date lead up to an insurmountable 9968-unit gap.

The Honda Civic will be Canada's best-selling car in 2016, the 19th consecutive annual victory for the Honda.

But the Civic is the leader of a fast-slowing category. In 2008, the Civic wasn't just Canada's best-selling car, it was the best-selling vehicle overall. But in 2008, passenger cars accounted for 54% of the Canadian auto industry's sales volume; pickup trucks only 15%. 


In 2016, pickup trucks produce nearly 20% of the overall new vehicle market and the Ford F-Series will end the year (its eighth consecutive) as Canada's best-selling vehicle. Passenger cars, on the other hand, have seen their share of the market fall to 34%.

Sure, the Honda Civic is Canada's best-selling car. But the job set before the Civic – consistently outselling all potential rivals – isn't as challenging now. Many of those cars simply don't sell as well as they used to.

As for the Civic, Honda Canada is on track to report between 67,000 and 70,000 sales of its compact car in calendar year 2016, give or take a bit as Honda's strategy shifts to account for the incoming Civic Hatchback. Honda's Civic sales record was set in 2008, when 72,463 were sold.

One car was added to the passenger car fleet in September: the new MKS-replacing Lincoln Continental. You'll also notice a change in the way Scion FR-S sales are displayed.
