Our Take On The Midsize Car Sales Numbers

Galvanising the decline of the mid size sedan segment, sales of these vehicles fell 27% in the calendar year 2017 vs the total for the calendar year 2016.

The only two vehicles in the chart below to post growth were the Volkswagen Passat and Mazda 6 – contributing a drop in the ocean of 610 sales in the green against a red tide away from the sedan.

Almost 5,000 sales from the deficit between 2017 and 2016’s totals can be attributed to the Ford Fusion, which ended last year down 32.5%, dipping below 10,000 sales for the first time since the nameplate’s introduction back in 2005.

It’s not alone in the sales decline however – the segment-leading Camry fell by 7.1%, though following its model changeover December’s fortunes mirrored those in the States, with it posting an uptick that may be a sign of things to come in 2018.

The Chevrolet Malibu also exceeded the traditionally-powered mid size sedan market’s decline in Canada, with sales falling by 29.1% compared with 2016’s total.

Some good news, though. Mid size hybrids and electrics surged forward 62% compared with 2016. Though the sub-segment-leading Prius saw a drop of 1.5%, the Chevrolet Volt charged to 24.3% growth in 2017.
