2016 Best Selling Passenger Cars In Canada (All Models Ranked)
The Honda Civic was Canada’s best-selling car in 2016, the 19th consecutive year of passenger car leadership for the Civic. Despite arriving in newly launched tenth-gen form, despite the addition of a helpful hatchback bodystyle at the end of the year, Civic sales slid 1% in 2016. Yet the top-selling Honda’s share of the car market nevertheless increased as Canadian demand for cars continued to shrink. In 2015, 9.1% of the cars sold in Canada were Honda Civics. In 2016, that figure jumped to 9.8%.
Rare was the car that didn’t sell less often in 2016 than in 2015. Among Canada’s 20 top cars, only four bucked the trend. Only one of the top 14 cars – the Hyundai Elantra – generated greater sales activity in 2016 than in 2015.
