Canada – Small Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The small car segment in Canada didn’t do very well in the month of July. The segment was down about several thousand units for the month. When you look YTD, the segment was down about tens of thousands of units.

These are significant drops in sales. There were only seven models that saw sales increases in the month of July. When you look YTD, only nine models saw sales increase.

The sales leader, the Honda Civic saw a roughly 18 percent drop for the month. It saw about a 10 percent increase when you look YTD. The Toyota Corolla took the number two spot and the Hyundai Elantra came in at number three. Both of these cars also saw sales drop and YTD. But the Corolla saw sales increase by about five percent.

We expect the sales decline for the segment to continue. Small cars have trended down for many months now, and they will likely continue to do so in the future.

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

We will report July 2019 Small Car Sales beginning on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2019 beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.
