Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

Passenger car sales across Canada fell by 7.65% year-on-year for May, with an extra selling day helping ease off the decrease in sales compared with the same month last year.

The leading passenger car, the Honda Civic, was one of the few to go better than its performance from May 2017. The Mazda 3, Ford Focus and Toyota Camry were among the rest towards the top end of the chart, with the Camry’s best month of 2018 so far representing a 26.8% upturn in sales for the midsize sedan leader.

Passenger cars in May took up a 32.7% slice of the Canadian market, a drop from the 35% chunk of sales during the same month in 2017.
