Midsize car sales in Canada didn’t look very good. The segment was down for the month of December, and sales were also down when you look at the year as a whole.
In just the month of December, the segment saw a drop in sales of about 1,400 units. When you look at the year as a whole, the segment was down by 11,000 units.
The Toyota Camry led the way in terms of sales. However, the Camry was down for both the month of December and the year as a whole. The Honda Accord was in second place, and the Toyota Prius Family was in third place.
We fully expect the segment to continue on a downward slope in 2020. The segment has struggled considerably in the last several years. It’ll be interesting to see what happens in this segment in the future.
