The Corolla’s 8% drop, in conjunction with the Hyundai Elantra’s 20% increase, moved the Corolla down to third spot in August and the Elantra up to second.
The Civic was one of two Hondas in the top 20. The Accord ranked fourth among midsize cars in August with 1203 units, enough for 15th place on the overall passenger car leaderboard.
The Elantra was one of three Hyundais in the top 20, a group which included the plunging Sonata and nosediving Accent.
The Corolla’s big brother, the Camry, is Canada’s best-selling midsize car so far this year but ranked 11th overall in August, one spot behind August’s midsize leader, the Ford Fusion.
