The Civic’s 2% drop – 1.7%, to be precise – was modest by the standards of both its chief rivals and the overarching Canadian passenger car market.
Indeed, in December, as Civic sales slid 1% during the clear-out of remaining MY2015 Civics and the launch of an all-new MY2016 Civic, Canada’s four top-selling Civic alternatives all declined more sharply. And Canada’s car market plunged 15% overall, losing more than 7000 sales and claiming less than one-third of the overall industry.
Bright spots? The Golf outsold the Jetta in Volkswagen showrooms thanks to a 30% year-over-year uptick. Accord, Altima, and Soul volume also increased, though the Accord and Altima were down in 2015 as a whole.
