Sporty Car Sales In Canada - October 2016 YTD

Canadian sales of Detroit muscle cars – two of which are now built in Michigan – jumped 27% to 594 units in October 2016. 

The trio, a bundle of sport coupes from Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford, are up 12% this year despite essentially nonexistent growth from the all-new Chevrolet Camaro.




The Subaru WRX/STI, however, was the high-volume sporting car in October.

A thoroughly unconventional variation of a thoroughly conventional four-door sedan, the WRX and its hi-po STI sibling produced 379 October sales, a 26% year-over-year improvement.

^ Mini sales include everything except the Countryman.
* also included 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 Audi A5 here and 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. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don't know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
