2019 Canada Small Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With June 2019 Data on July 2nd 2019

The small car segment in Canada didn’t do very well in the month of June. The segment was down about 6,700 units for the month. When you look YTD, the segment was down about 28,000 units.

These are significant drops in sales. There were only five models that saw sales increases in the month of June. When you look YTD, only nine models saw sales increase.

The sales leader, the Honda Civic saw a roughly nine percent drop for the month. It saw a similar increase when you look YTD. The Toyota Corolla took the number two spot and the Hyundai Elantra came in at number three. Both of these cars also saw sales drop for the month and YTD.

We expect the sales decline for the segment to continue. Small cars have trended down for many months now, and they will likely continue to do so in the future.

Below you will find sales figures for all small cars sold in Canada broken down by month and by quarter.
