For the fourth consecutive month, the Honda Civic was Canada’s best-selling car in August 2014, outselling the second-ranked Toyota Corolla by nearly 1.6-to-1.
Canada’s best-selling midsize car, however, ranked 11th in August, and the best-selling midsize car on year-to-date terms (Ford Fusion) ranked 12th. The Ford Fusion led all midsize cars one year ago as Canada’s ninth-ranked car overall. Only six of the 20 top-selling cars in Canada in August weren’t small cars.
Five of the 20 top-selling cars in Canada in August 2014 weren’t present on this list a year ago: the Hyundai Sonata, Kia Soul, Kia Forte, Nissan Altima, and Chrysler 200. Total Hyundai-Kia sales actually increased last month, albeit slightly, after falling 1.5% through the first seven months of 2014.
Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling cars can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC’s Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of Canada’s best-selling trucks and the list of Canada’s best-selling SUVs in August 2014, links for which you’ll find below.
