Midsize Car Sales In Canada - April 2017

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
Canadian sales of midsize cars tumbled 14% in April 2017, let down by most nameplates despite meaningful gains from the Honda Accord, Subaru Legacy, and departing Chrysler 200.

The Accord, in fact, was Canada's best-selling intermediate car in April 2017. Sales rose 9% to 1491 units, 99 more than the Toyota Camry – Canada's best-selling car so far this year – managed last month. Sales of the Camry are down 27% through the first one-third of 2017, not an unpredictable outcome for a car that will be replaced by an all-new variant in the second-half of 2017.

The Camry's 25% loss in April was by no means the worst drop. Nissan Altima sales were chopped in half. The Hyundai Sonata, which reported year-over-year improvements in the first-quarter, was down 28%. The Chevrolet Malibu, currently the newest midsize redesign, lost more than half its April sales. 

GM sold 1541 Chevrolet Malibus in April 2016; only 756 in April 2017.

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.
