Large Car Sales In Canada – August 2014 YTD

2012 Nissan Maxima

A host of year-over-year sales declines from a number of full-size, volume brand sedans were not overcome by big gains from a handful of nameplates in Canada during the month of August 2014.

Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger volume plummeted. Ford Tauurs sales dropped 6%. Kia Cadenza volume was down by three units, a 10% decline. Toyota Avalon sales slid 15%, a 14-unit drop. 

The gains produced by the Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Impala were nothing compared to Nissan’s doubling of Maxima sales. 

But a doubling of sales in this category, in this country, equals very little: just 51 extra sales for Nissan dealers across Canada. For comparison, Nissan Rogue volume jumped by 1190 units in August. 

With no Azera in Canada, Hyundai relies on the decidedly upmarket Genesis to push top-trim Sonata buyers way, way, way up the ladder. (GCBC also displays Genesis sedan sales in a luxury car segment breakdown.) Genesis sedan sales more than doubled last month, as well.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes – Hyundai USA doesn’t yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe – the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
