Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada - October 2016

2016 Ford Focus hatchback blue
Among volume vehicles, the Ford Focus experienced the worst year-over-year Canadian sales decline in October 2016. Focus sales plunged 45%, worse than the Toyota Camry's 41% drop, worse than the Kia Optima's 41% decrease, worse than the Toyota Tacoma's 39% dive.


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - October 2016 YTD


Discontinued vehicles largely filled the list of Canada's worst-selling vehicles irrespective of the level of volume. The Cadillac SRX (replaced by the XT5), Chrysler Town & Country (replaced by the Chrysler Pacifica), and Scion iM (now the Toyota Corolla iM) stood atop the worst sellers podium. Indeed, the Volvo XC70, Hyundai Genesis sedan, Hyundai Equus, and Lincoln MKS have all been superseded as well.



For the most part, Canada's lowest-volume vehicles are supposed to be the lowest-volume vehicles. The Maserati GranTurismo, Bentley Mulsanne, and Mercedes-AMG GT were never meant to be popular.

But there are interlopers. Acura isn't supposed to sell one RLX per week, for example.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access.
