Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

The Honda Civic makes it twenty years in a row at the top of the Canadian passenger car sales rankings, after holding on to a 6.9% growth in sales despite a year-on-year drop in December of more than a third.

The increase in year to-date sales for the Civic goes against the passenger car’s 2.7% reduction in volume against 2016 – a less steep decline than 2016’s 7.3% drop.

The Hyundai Elantra loses second place to the Toyota Corolla; the Toyota managed a 10.3% increase in sales, and would have overtaken the Elantra if it had held steady on 2016’s total.

Volkswagen’s Golf, which received a facelift at the end of 2017, has leapfrogged its sedan stablemate the Jetta. A new Jetta will shortly be unveiled in Detroit.
