Our Take On The Midsize Car Sales Numbers

Great swathes of red sweep the Midsize Car Sales chart for Canada in September 2017. Even the mighty Honda Accord sold fewer this month than the same last year, though it retains its lead YTD and over the last three months is in fact 12% ahead of the same period of 2016.

The difficulties seen across the midsize car market in Canada vastly outweigh the few-and-far-between success stories this month though; 868 fewer midsize cars were sold in Canada this September than last, an 11% difference this month adding to the 16% drop in year-to-date sales.

It’s not all doom and gloom however; the green credentials of the midsize hybrid market are reflected in the green colour scheme of its table this month. Sales of every single model in our midsize hybrid chart were up in September, with new additions for 2017 the Chevrolet Bolt and Kia Niro both having bountiful months in Canada alongside significant increases for the more established Ford C-Max (up 153%) and Toyota Prius (up 21%).

Could the midsize car buyer in Canada be moving firmly towards hybrids? The 58.7% increase in their overall sales this month suggests they could be. YTD hybrids have a market share of 17.1% of the entire midsize car segment, which has risen from 13% six months ago in March.

    mid size cars becoming too expensive. also when you add on upgrades. also designs are bizarre and dash area too complex. SUVs better choice for many as sales rise. and what happened to the front bumper? very expensive if you have to replace front facia.
