Midsize Car Sales In Canada - March 2017

Canadian sales of compact cars grew 5% in March and are on the rise through the first-quarter of 2017, as well, but midsize cars?




They're down 13% so far this year after a 15% slide worth 1345 lost sales in March 2017 brought the segment even lower. The Toyota Camry, Canada's best-selling midsize car so far this year, is down 27% as the venerable midsize Toyota quickly approaches the arrival of a replacement.

There are midsize nameplates that are selling more often this year than last. One, the Chrysler 200, is a discontinued car in a clear-out phase. Another, the Mazda 6, is an exceptionally low-volume car with limited potential. The two others, Hyundai's Sonata and the Nissan Altima, are upper tier competitors that are selling more often this year than last – but last year was awful.

Canadian Sonata sales fell to a seven-year low in 2016. Canadian Altima sales fell below 10,000 units for the third consecutive year after averaging nearly 13,000 annual sales in the previous half-decade.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are sortable, so you can rank midsize cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access.

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 Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too... 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.
