The 3-Series Touring – It’s Still A 3er, Not a 4-Series
Like The Coupe – Has A Base Price Of $47,850
Through the first half of 2013, the Fiat 500L is the 238th-best-selling vehicle in Canada. June, the sixth of 2013’s six complete months, was the 500L’s first month of Canadian availability. The only other new car on June’s list is a very old car, the Cadillac DTS, which ended its production run two years ago.
21% of the Canadian auto industry’s half-year volume stems from the five nameplates atop this list of 252 vehicles, Canada’s two favourite trucks, two favourite cars, and the most popular minivan, too. The Ford F-Series continues to be Canada’s best-selling vehicle.
The Ford Fusion Is Canada’s Best-Selling Midsize Car
The Hyundai Elantra continues to be Canada’s best-selling car, although its lead over June’s best-selling car, the Honda Civic, is now just 305 units strong. The Dodge Grand Caravan sells four times for every sale of the next-best-selling Toyota Sienna, Canada’s 38th-best-selling vehicle.
Canada’s top SUV is the eighth-ranked Ford Escape, which leads the Toyota RAV4 by 4821 sales. Canada’s leading midsize car, the Ford Fusion, is 1055 sales ahead of the top-selling subcompact, Hyundai’s Accent, and 2096 sales ahead of the Toyota Camry.
Even With The 500L, Fiat Canada Sales Fell 9% In June
From the 50th position in the first half of 2012, the Fiat 500 has fallen to 60th with half of 2013 remaining. The Mini Cooper family ranks 96th; the Volkswagen Beetle 114th. The Ford Mustang is 35 spots ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro.
With a year-over-year increase of 16% this year, the BMW 3-Series has climbed to the 37th position – from 45th a year ago – while the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has fallen from 40th a year ago to 52nd as year-over-year volume has tumbled 21%.
Meanwhile, Chevrolet’s Trax has shot up to 62nd from 70th at the end of May while the Buick Encore slid back two spots to 120th.
