Our Take On The Midsize Car Sales Numbers

Sales of midsize passenger cars in Canada fell by 21% in the first quarter of 2018, after little to no growth in the highest volume models in the table below.

The Toyota Camry, Canada’s favourite midsize sedan, managed to sell ten more units than to the end of March in 2017, while the second-placed Honda Accord has sold 127 fewer examples this year.

Steeper losses for the Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion have all driven home the decline in midsize car sales in Canada in 2018 – between them the four models are responsible for a drop of almost 2000 sales.

Growth of 36.9% for the Volkswagen Passat is impressive, but that only added 247 sales to the total; less than the just-arrived Kia Stinger has contributed this year.
