Toyota Corolla volume rose 4% last month and is up by more than 2600 sales so far this year. The Civic and Corolla, both which hatchback variants that weren’t part of the Civic/Corolla lines a year ago, account for one out of every five new vehicles sold in Canada.
Many of their competitors are fading fast.
Take the Hyundai Elantra, Canada’s third-best-selling car. Elantra sales are down 21% this year, a loss of 3322 sales for Hyundai Canada’s dealers. The best-selling midsize car in Canada, Toyota’s soon-to-be-replaced Camry, has already lost more than 1500 sales in 2017’s first four months.
Seven of Canada’s 20 best-selling cars, and 12 of the top 30, have reported year-over-year percentage losses in the double digits.
