2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – April 2017 YTD

The Honda Civic led all passenger cars with 6438 sales, enough to rank third overall. The Toyota RAV4, the eighth-best-selling vehicle in Canada in April 2017, was Canada’s top-selling utility vehicle despite a modest 1% downturn. 

Combined, Canada’s 30 best-selling vehicles accounted for 59% of all new vehicle sales. The top 20 alone generated half of all new vehicle volume in April 2017, while the top 10 produced slightly more than one-third of Canadian new vehicle sales in April and the top 5 produced slightly more than one-fifth.

Compared with April 2016, the Nissan Murano, Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Focus, Kia Sorento, Toyota Camry, and Jeep Wrangler were all knocked out of the top 30 in April 2017.
