Our Take On The Midsize Car Sales Numbers

Passenger car sales in Canada saw an overall decline of 9.8% year-on-year for April 2018. Midsize passenger car sales volume declined by 10.8% year-on-year.

That’s despite most of the higher-volume nameplates in the sector increasing their sales on last April. The Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata, Volkswagen Passat and Mazda 6 all saw growth last month, as well as the sector-topping Toyota Camry.

The Camry and Honda Accord both received redesigns for the 2018 model year, though as yet the Toyota is the only of the top-two pair in this segment to make any ground on its predecessor. And, despite critical acclaim among journalists and award panels for the new model, the Accord continues to slide backwards as the Camry has managed to overtake its year-to-date performance on the performance over the first one third of 2017.

Midsize hybrid sales in Canada continue to grow, though for April only two models managed year-on-year growth. Sales of the Kia Niro fell back on an overlapping month for the first time in the nameplate’s history in Canada, though with year-to-date sales more than twice that of a year ago for the Niro, Kia are unlikely to be fretting about a difference of 12 sales just yet.
