Canada – Small Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Small car sales in Canada didn’t look too great in September. The segment saw sales decline both for the month and YTD.

The segment was down by about 6,400 units in the month of September when compared with this month last year. When you look YTD, the segment has been down by 44,000 units.

Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume is the Honda Civic. However, the Civic was down 13 percent for the month. YTD the car has been down about 12 percent.

We expect small car sales to continue to decline as the rest of the year moves forward.
