Honda’s best-selling Civic now leads Canada’s passenger car standings by 5399 units heading into August 2014. Through the first seven months of the year, Civic volume is up 9%. Sales of the next-best-selling Hyundai Elantra are down 6% compared with 2013, its record-high sales year.
Canada’s midsize cars are led by the ninth-ranked Ford Fusion. Like so many of its rivals, Canadian sales of the Fusion are down sharply in 2014. The Fusion was Canada’s eighth-best-selling car at this time a year ago.
Sales are down by nearly 2000 units year-to-date. The second, third, and fourth-ranked midsize cars – Accord, Camry, Sonata – have combined for 3676 fewer sales than at this time last year.
There were exciting improvements introduced late last year in the GCBC’s rankings of all new vehicles. 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 Suzuki SX4 and Volvo C30, nameplates which collected sales during the first seven months 2014 but not during the same period one year later.

Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by July volume by clicking the July 2014 column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header.
