Sales of the Ford Mustang continue to show impressive year-on-year growth. August’s 170 more sales than the same month in 2016 makes for 24.6% growth.
The Chevrolet Camaro’s two fewer sales than in August last year shouldn’t be denigrated; it’s still the Camaro’s second best August in the Canadian market since 2011, and year-to-date sales are healthily up on this time last year.
Euro sports cars at the more premium end of the scale haven’t had it easy this year. Every single vehicle in our Euro Sports Car chart had a worse time in August 2017 than in the same month of 2016, and YTD sales of European marques in this category are down by almost a quarter on last year’s performance to the end of August.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank sports cars, coupes, GTs, roadsters, and convertibles any which way you like. Mobile users can now thumb across the tables for full-width access. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Audi A5 here and with luxury cars, because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don’t know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
