Midsize Car Sales In Canada – June 2017


Volkswagen’s Passat & CC models saw an uptick in sales to round off what was its best month in 2017 to date in the Canadian market. Jumps in the sale fo this and Honda’s Accord and the Mazda 6 helped mitigate the damage in what was another difficult month for midsize car sales in Canada. This time last year we saw a bumper month for the segment; that feat has not been repeated here with most brands seeing huge drops in the mid-segment.

Additions to the Hybrid and Electric market in Canada have helped drive the momentum behind this emerging technology. Mistubishi’s ageing i-MiEV dwindled from 8 sales in June 2016 to just 6 this year, and the Toyota Prius lost a few perhaps to the increased choice now available in this segment, but overall figures look healthy. 

Chevrolet’s Bolt, which arrived in the Canadian market at the start of the year, is seeing sturdy growth so far, though only in March did it tick over the 200 mark.

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 sortable, so you can rank midsize cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

^ Volkswagen Canada combines figures for the Passat and CC.
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.
