Canada – Small Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The small car segment in Canada struggled in the month of August and has had a pretty rough year so far.

In the month of August, the segment was down 15,000 units when compared with that same month last year. When you look YTD, you’ll see that the segment has been down about 39,000 units so far this year.

Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume is the Honda Civic. It was down for both the month of August and the YTD. Still, it sold many more models than its closest competitor.

The poor showing for the segment has been occurring for many months now, and we expect it to continue as more buyers turn to SUVs.

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

We will report Small Car Sales in Canada for August 2019 beginning on Tuesday, September 6th, 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.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
