November 2016 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 150 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked


2017 Honda Civic hatchback

The Canadian auto industry’s passenger car sector reported a more-modest-than-usual 3% year-over-year decline in November 2016. As the industry as a whole climbed 10% to report the first year-over-year improvement since June, passenger cars sales nevertheless decreased by more than 1400 units compared with November 2015.

That decline included sharp drops from the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra, Canada’s two best-selling cars, and also ten of the eleven most popular cars in the country.

Civic and Elantra volume is improved in 2016, albeit marginally in the Honda’s case. The arrival of the Civic Hatchback in recent weeks appears to be causing a measure of reduced volume from the pre-existing models. 

In November, for instance, 610 sales of the England-built hatchback occurred as the sedan and coupe combined to lose 1087 sales, Canada-wide.

As 2016 approaches its close, the Civic is certain to end its 19th consecutive year as Canada’s best-selling car. The Toyota Camry is 1335 sales ahead of the Ford Fusion in the race to end 2016 as the best-selling midsize car. The Hyundai Accent is easily Canada’s top-selling subcompact. 

Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class is 2016 sales ahead of the BMW 3-Series as the top-selling luxury nameplate. The Ford Mustang’s 7363 sales place it well ahead of any other sporty car.
