Small Car Sales In Canada - October 2016 YTD

2017 Toyota Corolla iM
Canadian sales of compact cars plunged 9% in October, a rate of decline far sharper than the segment experienced through the first three-quarters of 2016. 




Led by the Honda Civic – which produced a 2% year-over-year uptick in October – compacts nevertheless slid by nearly 2800 units compared with October 2015. Subcompact cars, meanwhile, fell 27%.

The Civic wasn't the only small car to post improved October sales. Helped along like the Civic by the inclusion of a new hatchback model, formerly the Scion iM, Toyota Corolla volume grew 21%. The Kia Forte jumped 8%. Upmarket rivals from Acura and Buick, the ILX and Verano, posted improvements, as well.

Among subcompacts, however, every single member of the segment sold less often this year than last. The class-leading Hyundai Accent was down 8%. Every one of its rivals posted worse year-over-year percentage drops.

* 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.
