Canadians registered just 221 Chevrolet Malibus in July 2013. Malibu sales are higher this year than they were during the first seven months of 2013, but Malibu volume was way down last year, after falling sharply the year before, as well.
Ford sold nine times more Fusions than Chevrolet sold Malibus last month. Score.
How ’bout an even bigger victory? The Fusion is the eighth-best-selling car in Canada and the top-selling midsize car. Its lead over the Honda Accord is 2679-units strong.
Year-to-date, the Kia Optima is down by 2078 units in Canada. Nissan Altima volume has tumbled 2525 units from 8750 at this time last year.

The Subaru Legacy’s 30% drop equals 457 lost units; Outback volume is down by 440 sales, and the Impreza is down 16%, an 1111-unit loss. Yet Subaru Canada is selling more automobiles than in the company’s history thanks to a huge uptick in Forester volume – 6000 sold so far this year – and assistance from the BRZ and XV Crosstrek, which have combined for 3867 sales that didn’t exist at this time last year.
