Canadian sales of midsize cars increased in November 2016?
Granted, the 6% uptick compared with November 2015 still represents a 22% drop compared with November 2014. And yes, November 2016 was a particularly lengthy “auto sales month” compared with November 2015, which didn’t begun until the November 3.
But big gains from the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, and Volkswagen Passat more than offset losses from the segment-leading Toyota Camry – soon to be introduced as an all-new model at January’s North American International Auto Show – and the Honda Accord, Subaru Legacy, Mazda 6, and departing Chrysler 200.

Absent a 1336-unit margin of victory for the Fusion in December, the Toyota Camry will reign as Canada’s top-selling midsize car in 2016, a second consecutive year atop the leaderboard.
The new Chevrolet Malibu is Canada’s fastest-growing midsize car.
The segment as a whole is down 11% this year.
