Large Car Sales In Canada - December 2016 & 2016 Year End

2016 Dodge Charger black
Two Canadian-built, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-size sedans were Canada's two best-selling full-size volume brand sedans in 2016.




Canadian sales of the top-selling Dodge Charger and second-ranked Chrysler 300 declined 17% in 2016, a far faster rate of decline than the segment at large. (Their competitors were down only 7%.) But with all but one challenger falling to some degree, as well, the FCA twins conquered the category.

Nissan's Maxima was clearly the exception to the rule in 2016. Sales jumped 35% to 2297 units, fifth among volume brand large sedans, but the highest Maxima output since 2006.

Former stalwarts, the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Taurus, saw their sales fall 14% and 3%, respectively. Impala volume has declined in ten consecutive years.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes - Hyundai USA doesn't yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe - the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
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. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
