Midsize Car Sales In Canada – July 2017


Canada’s hybrid & electrics market flourished in July, with more than a third more cars leaving dealerships with some form of electrification than had done at the same point in 2016. The added choice with new models like the Kia Niro and Chevrolet Bolt seems to have drawn more consumers to adopt the technology.

Marginally less Midsize cars were sold compared with July 2016, though that itself was hardly a stellar month for the segment. The Chevrolet Malibu had an especially good month with 907 leaving dealerships compared with July 2016, though it still lags behind last year’s figures by a quarter. Only the Honda Accord and Mazda 6 now post year-on-year growth in the Canadian market.

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. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access.

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.
