CarCostCanada's September 2020 Top 10 Vehicles Sold Report


Canada's Top 10 Selling New Cars

Full-size trucks mostly did better in September, both month-over-month (MoM) and year-over-year (YoY), with Canada’s best-selling Ford F-Series deliveries up to 16,351 units, for an increase of 8.3 percent since August. The blue-oval pickup’s tally also resulted in a sizeable 19.6-percent uptick since September of 2019, while Ram also saw its Pickup deliveries increase by 8.3 percent to 9,139 units MoM, which grew its YoY sales by 11.8 percent.

General Motors didn’t fare quite as well, mind you, with GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado deliveries growing identically to their key rivals at 8.3 percent MoM to 4,919 and 4,908 units respectively, but seeing their YoY numbers fall by 6.6 and 5.9 percent apiece. This said, the two brands collectively earned second place ahead of the Ram Pickup with combined September sales of 9,827 units, but their lead certainly narrowed since earlier this year. At least the two GM trucks’ ranking in last month’s top-10 moved a step upwards to fifth and sixth place, which is worthy of some consolation.

Honda’s CR-V, however, dropped three places from fourth to seventh MoM, with September sales of 4,500 units resulting in a negative 14.2-percent slide from August and a slightly less severe 8.5-percent slip from the same month last year, whereas Toyota’s RAV4 remained Canada’s third-best-selling vehicle, and the overall sales leader outside of the truck segment, although its 6,896 deliveries actually showed MoM shrinkage of -9.8 percent, albeit a YoY increase of 19.2 percent.

The number of times the Honda Civic didn’t earn a top-10 ranking over the past year can be counted on two fingers, but lately its competitiveness has been very strong, with September’s result of 5,113 units seeing it rise through the ranks from fifth to fourth place, representing a 7.0-percent upsurge in new MoM buyers, although this result showed a minus 3.4-percent decline YoY.

The next best-selling car in Canada during September was Toyota’s Corolla that only managed eighth overall due to 3,911 units, which resulted in an increase of 2.6 percent MoM and a 0.5-percent improvement YoY.

Hyundai’s Kona and Nissan’s Rogue continued forward in ninth and 10th positions respectively through September, with 3,608 and 2,888 deliveries apiece. These results show a slight slowdown of -2.0 percent for the smaller subcompact Korean SUV, and a reasonable upswing of 8.3 percent for the larger compact Japanese utility, although the momentum shifts when viewing YoY results, which see the Kona gaining a significant 69.6-percent and the Rogue losing -19.6 percent.
