April 2016 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 137 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked

Canadian sales of passenger cars fell 8% in April 2016 and tumbled 5% through the first four months of the year. 

Midst the explosive growth in the auto industry as a whole, the passenger car’s share of the Canadian auto market plunged five points from 39% in the first-third of 2015 to 34% in the first four months of 2016.

But Canada’s two best-selling cars, newly launched over the winter, are selling more often this year than last. 

The Honda Civic, Canada’s best-selling car in 18 consecutive years, and the Hyundai Elantra, Canada’s second-best-selling car in each of the last four years, now own 17% of the Canadian car market, up from 14% a year ago.

Taking the brunt of a turn away from cars toward SUVs and crossovers are top sellers from Mazda, Chevrolet, Volkswagen, and Ford. The 3, Cruze, Jetta, and Focus combined to lose more than 8000 sales already this year.
