Midsize Car Sales In Canada – October 2016 YTD


2017 Ford Fusion white

Canadian sales of midsize cars fell by only 2% in October 2016, a modest drop given the overall passenger car sector’s 9% slide and the midsize segment’s own 13% dive through the first three-quarters of 2016.

Boosted by the double-digit percentage gains from the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, and Subaru Legacy, the midsize sector was nevertheless let down by double-digit losses from the Chrysler 200, Honda Accord, Kia Optima, Volkswagen Passat, and best-selling Toyota Camry.

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.
