Year-to-date, Sonata sales are down 24%, but July volume rose to the highest Sonata level since April 2011. Canada’s year-to-date midsize leader, the Ford Fusion, fell 21% in July and is down 15% so far this year.
The Fusion’s decrease is completely symptomatic of the segment’s overall decline. Midsize car sales are down 19% in Canada this year.
Only the very low-volume Subaru Legacy and the somewhat more successful Volkswagen Passat (Canada’s seventh-best-selling midsize car last month) have reported year-over-year increases.

These tables are now sortable, so you can rank midsize cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
