Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada - March 2017

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL
The Jeep Patriot, still an active member of FCA Canada's Jeep fleet despite discontinuation orders, lost two-thirds of its March sales in the third month of 2017 to end the month as Canada's worst-selling volume vehicle.

Among continuing nameplates, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL's 62% drop to 457 units was worst. The Kia Rio, transitioning into a new generation this year, fell 54% to 333 sales. 


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - March 2017 YTD


The Chevrolet Malibu's 53% drop was worst among recently re-engineered vehicles. 

The Honda Fit, dying Toyota Venza, and dying Buick Verano all lost more than half of their volume, as well.



GCBC also compiled a list of Canada's most rapidly declining vehicles, full stop, irrespective of volume. There's also a list of the 20 lowest-volume vehicles in Canada, a list of mostly intentionally low-volume vehicles, although a handful of genuinely unpopular mainstream models make the cut, too.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access.
