Best Selling Compact Cars in Canada for March 2018
Here you will find the Compact Car sales leaders in Canada for March 2018. Each month we compile the Compact Car sales data and reports for North American markets and analyze it to create the best selling list below.
Canada’s small car market grew by 1.5% year-to-date over the course of the first quarter of the year, with just one sub-segment being the main driving force behind that.
Combined sales of the tall hatches listed below have grown 57% year-to-date, with an influx of new models combined with generally consistent-or-better sales this year than last for some of the more established names contributing to the gains.
The sub-segment’s best-seller for the year so far wasn’t even on sale last March – the Nissan Qashqai takes the top spot, with 3748 examples leaving showrooms in the first three months of 2017, seeing off the renewed Subaru XV Crosstrek despite that model more than doubling its sales on a year ago.
A notable exception to the rule so far in the tall hatches chart is the Honda HR-V, which after a tough couple of months sees sales fall 16.7% year-to-date.
The Qashqai still has a long way to go to catch up with the small car sales leaders for the segment in volume terms, though the top-three year-to-date – the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra – have all seen sales dip compared with last year’s results.
Currently, the Qashqai and Crosstrek sit seventh and eighth overall for the year. The highest-placed subcompact year-to-date is the Hyundai Accent, holding on to 16th place despite sales having fallen almost 30% compared with Q1 2017.
The highest-placed warm hatch – the Mini Cooper – edges out the highest placed city car, the Chevrolet Spark in 27th and 28th places overall for the year so far.
