Canada – Midsize Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The midsize car segment in Canada hasn’t had a great year so far and the month of August wasn’t an exception.

The segment was down roughly 700 units for the month of August when compared with this month last year. The segment is down roughly 6,700 units so far this year.

Leading the pack in terms of sales volume for the month was the Toyota Prius Family. This was due to its surge in sales for the month of about 57 percent.

When you look YTD, the Toyota Camry has been the best-selling model. It is up about eight percent for the year so far, but it was down about 28 percent in the month of August.

We expect midsize car sales to continue to dwindle in the coming months. The segment hasn’t performed well in the last couple of years, and car sales are in decline overall.

Below you will find sales figures for all midsize cars sold in Canada broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report Midsize Car Sales in Canada for August 2019 beginning on Tuesday, September 6th, 2019 beginning around 10 AM ET.
