Mazda 2 Sales Fell 38% In February, But
It Was Still Canada’s 17th-Best-Selling
Car, Down From #10 A Year Ago
Hyundai Canada copied its February 2012 performance a year later by making the Elantra Canada’s best-selling car in February 2013.
The key difference? This year, the Elantra leads the year-to-date standings as well, having outsold the second-ranked Honda Civic by 1213 units through 59 days. The expansion of the Elantra’s volume lead in February totalled 760 units.
The midsize segment, one size class bigger than most of Canada’s eight best-selling cars, landed seven cars on the list of Canada’s best-selling cars in February 2013. That’s up from five last February and five in January 2013.
All Vehicles Ranked By February 2013 & YTD Canadian Sales
Sales of the fourth, sixth, and seventh-best-selling midsize cars – Camry, Optima, Altima – fell rather sharply. Canada’s overall market was down 3.3% last month. Automotive News says passenger car sales were down 3.7%, compared with a 3% decline in “light truck” sales, which includes anything that isn’t a traditional passenger car. Canada’s best-selling midsize car this year is the Ford Fusion. The stylish Ford has opened up a 472-unit lead over the Hyundai Sonata, which is itself ten sales in front of the surging Honda Accord.
