Small Car Sales In Canada - March 2017

2017 Honda Civic hatchback grey
Canada's car market isn't dying. 




Certain cars are experiencing a downturn that will likely lead to their deaths. But because of the strength of the best-selling cars in Canada – the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla – Canada's compact car market grew in size in the first-quarter of 2017 and jumped 5% in March 2017, specifically.

Both the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla folded hatchback bodystyles into their lineups for the 2017 model year. With those cars helping out, the Civic and Corolla are on track for their best annual sales performances ever. 

Honda has already sold 15,396 Civics in Canada this year. Consider this: in all of calendar year 2016, only nine other car nameplates sold more copies than the Honda Civic managed in the first-quarter of this year.

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 now sortable, so you can rank small cars of all kinds 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.

* 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.
