Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

The Canadian Passenger Car market slipped by just under 400 sales year-on-year, a drop of 0.7% compared with last September. Factor in the amount of selling days in September 2017 – 26 to 2016’s 25, and that equates to over 100 fewer passenger cars a day being sold in Canada.

The Mazda 3 outsold rival Chevrolet Cruze again in September, meaning the Mazda is now within 75 sales of the Cruze. The same difference between the two next month would see the Mazda go ahead in the YTD stakes too.

Kia reported its best month of sales in the Canadian market since 2014, with the Kia Forte contributing to a large chunk of that lift with its 78% year-on-year growth. Other Kias in our passenger car countdown contributed, though not with the same magnitude as the Forte, though sales of the Soul dropped year-on-year by 40 units.
