Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada - December 2016

2016 Chrysler 200
The Nissan Altima's 65% year-over-year tumble in December 2016 was the sharpest drop of any volume car on sale in Canada. The Altima led a group of 20 volume cars – the 20 worst-selling new vehicles in Canada – that included ten cars such as the Chrysler 200, three GM pickup trucks, and seven utility vehicles. 


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - 2016 Year End


Canadian auto sales rose to record high levels in 2016, but December volume was down 2%, the fifth decline in the last six months.

GCBC has also compiled lists of the outright 20 lowest-volume vehicles on sale in Canada in December 2016, a list chock full of high-priced machinery such as the Bentley Flying Spur and defunct nameplates such as the Lincoln MKS and Hyundai Genesis. 

Furthermore, the list of Canada's 20 fastest-declining new vehicles – regardless of the volume levels achieved in December – includes only 12 active nameplates.

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.
