In September 2013, Canada’s midsize cars were led by the Toyota Camry, sales of which jumped 34% last month after rising 38% one year ago and 58% in September 2011.
The Camry is Canada’s second-best-selling midsize car this year and Canada’s tenth-best-selling car overall. Sales of conventionally-powered Camrys actually rose 49% to 1756 units in September. In other words, even if we were to exclude the hybrid, the Camry was Canada’s most popular midsize car last month.
Disappointingly – not just for Mazda but for enthusiasts who would like to see midsize buyers opting for something stylish and fun – sales of the Mazda 6 fell 32% to 295 units and are up just 10% this year, the year in which Mazda introduced the latest 6.
Other new sedans have posted far more significant year-over-year gains, and they’ve done so having started from higher sales plateaus in 2012. Sales of the best-selling Ford Fusion are up 25%; Honda Accord sales have shot up 135% in 2013 and more than doubled in September, as well.
