2012 Honda Civic Sedan

Not since March has Honda sold this many Civics in Canada. The Civic’s 6817 sales were enough to make the Honda more than just Canada’s best-selling car, but Canada’s best-selling vehicle overall. That’s not a normal monthly result.

Canada’s most popular pickup, the second-ranked Ford F-Series, finished November 2011 2249 sales ahead of the third-ranked Dodge Ram. There are five pickup trucks on this list of Canada’s 30 best-selling vehicles. The F-Series, Ram, GMC Sierra, and Chevrolet Silverado ended November as Canada’s four most popular vehicles, aside from the Honda Civic, of course. These four top-selling trucks accounted for 16 out of every 100 new vehicles sold in Canada last month. 

The best-selling minivan in Canada, despite decreasing volume, remains the Dodge Grand Caravan. The Grand Caravan is down 2% this year; sales slid 22% in November. No other minivan made it into the top 30.

One-third of Canada’s 30 best-selling vehicles list is formed by SUVs and crossovers. The Ford Escape is the #1 SUV, though sales fell 13% in November and Honda CR-V sales jumped 135% to 2443. 

There are six Hyundais and Kias among Canada’s 30 best-selling vehicles. Add to that five Fords, five Toyotas, four General Motors products, three nameplates from Chrysler Canada, two Hondas, two Nissans, and single entries from BMW, Mazda, and Volkswagen.
