Canadian sales of compact cars are down 7% this year but didn’t slow quite as noticeably in March as in the prior two months.
March volume of compacts, led by the Honda Civic’s 8% decline to 5554 units, slid 3%, a loss of around 1000 units. Honda previewed an all-new 2016 Civic with a thinly-veiled concept at the New York Auto Show earlier this month.
Subcompact sales, meanwhile, fell 15% thanks to declines from nearly every nameplate.

For the first time since its arrival in Canada one year ago, the Nissan Micra topped the 1000-unit mark. In so doing, the Micra outsold the Mitsubishi Mirage by 633 units and Nissan’s own declining Versa by 166 units.
