Canada’s passenger car market, unhealthy in a record-setting overall new vehicle industry through the first five months of the year, rose 3.8% in June, 6.1% in July, 1.4% in August, and 2.1% in September 2014.
The Honda Civic accounts for nearly 9% of the Canadian car market and propels much of the growth. Non-Civic car sales were up just 1.8% last month.
New to these rankings this month is the Acura TLX, which generated 23% of Acura’s Canadian sales volume in September.
Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by September volume by clicking the September 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format.
