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


2017 Honda Civic hatchback grey

The Honda Civic will end 2016 as Canada’s best-selling car. 

2016 will be the 19th consecutive year of sales leadership in the passenger car sector for Honda’s most popular car. Already, in ten months, Honda Canada has sold 56,783 new Civics this year, almost certainly more sales than the Civic’s passenger car rivals will manage in the whole calendar year. This grants the Civic a victory even if Honda had to stop selling Civics today.

But the Civic continues apace, reporting 2% year-over-year growth in October 2016 despite a 9% drop in the passenger car market. 

Honda, boosted by the arrival of the Civic hatchback, posted a 1% brand-wide increase in October even as industry-wide sales slid 5%, the fourth consecutive month of decline. Car sales at Honda, however, are nevertheless down 2% this year, a year in which passenger car volume has fallen 8%.
