Small Car Sales In Canada - February 2017

2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door
Canadian compact car sales dipped only slightly in February 2017, falling 1% in a car market that – outside the compact arena – was down 5%. Compact cars, led by the surging Honda Civic, formed 52% of Canada's passenger car market in February; 51% year-to-date.

Though consumers are quickly fleeing cars and heading for the hills in SUVs and crossovers, compact cars have not been nearly as sorely afflicted as midsize cars. Much of the credit goes to the top tier candidates, and not just the Civic. Toyota Corolla sales are up 27% this year, for instance, and Mazda 3 sales are rebounding modestly, as well.

Midsize cars, on the other hand, are down 12% in Canada this year, and subcompact cars have fallen by a third, tumbling 33% to only 4588 units through the end of February. 

That's a loss of 2209 sales in just two months for nine cars. The Civic and Corolla, on their own, have each easily outsold the whole Canadian compact car category.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown.
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. This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small SUVs, too, and the Acura ILX shown with mainstream cars is also displayed with luxury cars... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
