Our Take On The Compact Car Sales Numbers

Despite large fluctuations in some of the sub-segments below, small car sales in Canada declined just under 4% year-on-year in May – slower than the overall passenger car segment, with sales down 7.65% across the board last month.

The steepest declines were seen in the relatively low-impact warm hatch segment – sales of these vehicles were down 42.5% year-on-year.

Even the Chevrolet Spark got in on the brand’s best May since 2007; sales of the tiny Spark shot up almost fivefold year-on-year, making it the dominant nameplate in the city car triumvirate for the month and catapulting it – and the segment – into the green year-to-date.

The most voluminous small car segment was less healthy at the end of May – while the segment-topping Honda Civic increased sales 4.2%, overall sales fell by 11.7% – faster than the overall passenger car market decline – with severe drops for fairly big-volume players like the Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze and Volkswagen Golf seeing drops last month.
