October 2015 YTD Canada Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 145 Best-Selling Cars In Canada – Every Car Ranked

2013 Honda Civic red

As Honda Canada prepared its launch of the all-new, tenth-generation Civic, sales of the outgoing Civic are increasing even as total Canadian passenger car sales decrease.

Honda Civic volume in October 2015 jumped 6%, a particularly massive improvement given the 10% drop generated by the overall passenger car market.

One out of every ten new cars sold in Canada last month was a Honda Civic, a startling figure given the fact that the Civic accounts for less than 1% of the available passenger car nameplates.

But sales of the Toyota Corolla, Canada’s second-best-selling car in October 2015, plunged 20%, year-over-year. The Mazda 3 recorded a 12% decrease, equal to 382 fewer sales compared with October 2014. 

Chevrolet Cruze, Volkswagen Jetta, Hyundai Accent? Down. Nissan Sentra, Honda Accord, Kia Forte? Down. Chrysler 200, Kia Rio, Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Fit? Down.

Don’t confuse these uncomfortable results with a disease that’s affecting the overall Canadian auto industry. Canadian auto sales are up 3% through the first ten months of 2015. Canadians have already purchased and leased than in all of 2009, 2010, or 2011. But passenger cars accounted for 45% of the overall market in 2011, just 39% in 2015 and only 37% in October 2015.
