Sporty Car Sales In Canada - March 2017

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
Ford Mustang sales rose modestly in Canada in March 2017, climbing 3% to 669 units, more than enough to be Canada's top-selling sports car/muscle coupe/pony car/sporty vehicle. Or whatever you want to call it.




Year-over-year, Dodge Challenger sales doubled. Chevrolet Camaro volume perked up, as well. Through the first-quarter of 2017, the Mustang owns 46% of the three-car category.

And while sales of traditional American sporting coupes are surging in Canada, smaller European sports cars are all fading. Combined sales of the Alfa Romeo 4C, Audi TT, BMW Z4, Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes-Benz SLC, and Porsche's Boxster and Cayman are down 42% so far this year compared with the first three months of 2016.

Mazda MX-5 Miata sales are soaring. Chevrolet's Corvette has added 52% more sales to its first-quarter ledger.

* also included 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 Audi A5 here and 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. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don't know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
