2019 Canada Small Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With December 2019 Data on January 8th, 2020

Top Level Canada Reports: By Manufacturer / By Brand / By Model / Best Sellers

Small car sales in Canada didn’t have too good of a time in 2019. The segment struggled both in the last month of the year and in 2019 as a whole.

When you look at just the month of December, you’ll notice that the segment was down about 3,500 units. If you look at the total sales numbers for the entire year, the segment is down by about 50,000 units.

The leader for the segment was the Honda Civic. The Civic was down for both the month of December and the year as a whole. The Toyota Corolla was next in line, and the Hyundai Elantra was in third place.

The segment was down this year, and we expect to see more of the same in 2020.

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.
