It’s not exactly the order you’d expect. January 2013 Canadian midsize car sales results (initially) showed the Suzuki Kizashi outselling the Subaru Legacy. The Mazda 6 outsold the Kia Optima, Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu, Dodge Avenger, and Volkswagen Passat, not to mention the Kizashi and Legacy. Toyota’s Prius V outsold the Honda Insight, Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, and Toyota Prius Plug-In, and did so with 31 units to spare.

And the Ford Fusion was Canada’s top-selling properly midsize car in January, outselling 2012’s best seller, the Toyota Camry, by 473 units. The Camry fell to fourth spot, behind the surging Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata, which recorded its best January ever, a feat Hyundai Canada accomplished with the Santa Fe last month.
Sales of the Camry Hybrid rose 7.3% to 176 in January 2013, equal to 22.3% of overall Camry sales.
Toyota Canada is generous with model breakdowns. There are hybrid versions of numerous other midsize cars, but sales figures for those hybrids aren’t made available, sadly.
