July 2017 was a tough month for the Canadian Large Car market. Last month’s growth year-on-year has been eroded somewhat – large cars were 18.2% ahead of the same point last year at the end of June, which has fallen to 12.2% – but it’s not all bad news.
The Buick LaCrosse, for one, is having a better time of it than last summer. After hitting a high of 130 units in the month of June 2016, sales then dipped to the mid-20s for a couple of months before recovering somewhat through the winter. This year, its peak was lower – 100 cars in the month of April – but since then sales have remained steady. If it repeats recent figures in August, it will easily overtake its YTD figures by that month’s end.
This segment is one where American brands are faring better than rivals from across the sea – the Chevrolet Impala, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Ford Taurus all remain ahead of 2016’s figures, while the Kia Cadenza, Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon are all far behind the same point last year.

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.
