Each of Canada’s five best-selling vehicles in September 2015 posted year-over-year sales increases.

By the end of October, Ford Canada will have sold more pickup trucks than the second-ranked Ram will by year’s end.
September was undeniably a healthy month for the Canadian auto industry with a 4% increase to more than 174,000 total new vehicle sales. The 20 top sellers accounted for half that volume, a far more dominant performance than the top sellers average in the U.S., where they typically account for less than four out of every ten new vehicle sales.
Not every high-volume vehicle sold more often in September 2015 than during the same period one year ago, however. The best-selling SUV in Canada, Ford’s Escape, slid 6% and is down 10% through the first three quarters of 2015. Canada’s second-best-selling car this year, the Toyota Corolla, saw its grip on second place slip as sales of the third-ranked Hyundai Elantra jumped 42% and Corolla volume fell 1%.

Compared with September 2014, the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Accent have been knocked out of the top 30. Their replacements: the Kia Soul, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Tucson,
