CarCostCanada's February 2020 Top 10 Vehicles Sold Report


Canada's Top 10 Selling New Cars

Sales in the truck sector picked up significantly during February, not unusual for this time of year, with the perennially best-selling Ford F-Series benefiting from a 29.4-percent month-over-month (MoM) uptick, not to mention 41.8 percent of year-over-year (YoY) growth. Likewise, Ram saw its Pickup deliveries increase by 29.5 percent from January to February 2020, while the full-size truck’s YoY February business grew by 26.1 percent.

Bigger news saw General Motors’ fraternal twins, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, jump from fifth and seventh place in January respectively, to third and fourth last month, with 4,968 and 4,697 sales apiece, plus a collective 9,665 units for second-place overall when counting automaker deliveries instead of breaking them down to brand and model. This means the Sierra grew at the exact same MoM rate as the Ram Pickup, or 29.5 percent, whereas its YoY increase was even greater at 55.7 percent. Silverado sales also grew 29.5 percent from January through February, making this “trend” appear like seasonal market growth, while the model’s YoY improvement was almost as strong as the Sierra’s, at 48.7 percent.

GM’s move up the top-10 sales chart simultaneously pushed Toyota’s RAV4 down to fifth despite 4,065 Canadian deliveries, resulting in a 4.7-percent increase in month-over-month activity, while the crossover SUV sector’s most popular model saw yearly change of 5.9 percent. Hot on the RAV4’s heels, the always popular Honda CR-V earned 3,564 new buyers in February and kept its sixth-place position, yet found 6.0 percent fewer takers last month than it did in January, and did 13.9 percent less business than it experienced in February of 2019.

Moving up in size and ranking, the Dodge Grand Caravan had another strong showing last month, improving from eighth to seventh by pulling in 3,536 new owners, resulting in a gain of 29.5-percent MoM (there’s that number again) and 22.4 percent YoY. This is impressive growth for a model that was supposed to be discontinued years ago, due to soldiering on for more than a dozen years with very few changes. Obviously Canadian families still believe the Grand Caravan offers great value, along with a level of all-round practicality that’s otherwise only available in Chrysler’s pricier Pacifica (got to love those second-row seats that completely hide away below the floor when loading and/or camping).

The final three places in February’s top-10 were held by the Honda Civic, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Toyota Corolla, the mid-size Jeep courtesy of a massive increase of new buyers and Nissan’s compact Rogue dropping off the chart. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen any mid-size SUV in the top-10, which would’ve been cause for celebration at Fiat-Chrysler’s Windsor HQ. The three models were responsible for 3,218, 3,165 and 3,128 sales respectively, with their respective year-over-year change equaling -13.8, +87.4, and +25.8 percent apiece, or in layman’s terms, not so good, ruddy awesome, and pretty decent.
