Our Take On The Top 20 Best Selling Car Sales Numbers

The prevalence of red in the chart below rings true with the decline seen in Canadian passenger car sales in March 2018.

Last month, 9.4% fewer passenger cars were sold in Canada than the same month a year ago. Across the top-20, 11.8% fewer were sold in March 2018 than 2017.

The passenger car sales leaders, the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, saw sales fall by 22.9% and 11.2% respectively, cutting 2402 sales from the total between them.

Upticks for the Volkswagen Golf (+21.7%), Ford Focus (+11.6%), Ford Mustang (+43.6%) and Toyota Prius (+85.3%) paled in comparison to the steep losses elsewhere in the segment, with only five out of the top-20 passenger cars managing growth last month.
