Sales Of The Chevrolet Cruze Are Up 5% In Canada In 2014.
It’s Canada’s 11th-Best-Selling Vehicle Through Three Months.
During the first quarter of 2014, Canadians registered more new Mitsubishi Mirages than Ford Mustangs, Cadillac ATSs, Chevrolet Sparks, or Mazda 6s. In the small-car-loving first-world country of Canada, the very third-world Mirage is the 103rd-best-selling vehicle.
Meanwhile, the Mirage is America’s 160th-best-selling vehicle. In these all-important Canadian rankings of all vehicle makes and models in 2014’s first three months, we don’t discuss the Mirage because it’s such an impactful automobile, but because it’s just one more way of showing the huge differences between the Canadian and U.S. auto markets.

There are certainly similarities: the Ford F-Series is easily the best-selling vehicle in Canada, as it is in the United States. The Ram P/U is Canada’s second-best-selling vehicle, just as it was in the U.S. in the month of March.
A Japanese-branded, North American-built car is the top-selling passenger car. In Canada, that car is the Honda Civic, not the Toyota Camry. At least for now, the 24th-ranked Honda Accord has taken over from the Ford Fusion as Canada’s top-selling midsize car. The Ford Escape leads all SUVs and crossovers.
And there are yet a large number of key differences. Hyundai and Kia own 7.9% of the U.S. market; 11.8% of the Canadian market. Nissan is currently outselling Honda in the U.S.; Honda brand sales in Canada are 34% stronger than Nissan sales. General Motors, Ford MoCo, and Chrysler Group/FCA own 45.1% of the U.S. market, where the Chrysler Group is the fourth-ranked manufacturer. In Canada, where the Chrysler family of brands has outsold all other manufacturers in 2014, the trio’s market share equals 43.7%.
Nissan’s top-selling vehicle in Canada is the 16th-ranked Rogue, one of the most rapidly improving nameplates on the market. The Dodge Grand Caravan joins the Ram truck lineup in Canada’s top four. The Chevrolet Cruze outsold the Chevrolet Silverado by 562 units in March.

There were exciting improvements introduced in October’s rankings of vehicle sales. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increases/decreases from last year. As a result, we now include vehicles like the Lexus LFA and Volvo C70, nameplates which collected sales in March 2013 but not during March 2014.
More importantly, there are now visible brand results, so when you sort the table by vehicle names to showcase, for example, all Hyundais together, you’ll also see the Hyundai brand’s total. Manufacturers are shown in bold to differentiate makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.
Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by March volume by clicking the March 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
