CarCostCanada's February 2021 Top 10 Vehicles Sold Report


Canada's Top 10 Selling New Cars

There were no changes to the top four from January through February, with Ford, Ram, GMC and Chevrolet achieving identical sales figures for their respective F-Series, Pickup, Sierra and Silverado models, and while we know this is a mathematical impossibility, the error comes from the sole supplier of this Canadian market data.

We can report about the six vehicles that (reportedly) followed, however, with the Toyota RAV4 once again being Canada’s best-selling non-truck model due to 4,594 deliveries, which represent a 24.2-percent gain in month-over-month (MoM) sales, while the popular compact crossover SUV also saw its year-over-year (YoY) numbers increase by 13.0 percent.

Honda’s CR-V found 3,716 Canadian buyers last month, which makes it our second-most popular vehicle without a bed and box attached to the back. This figure represents a 30.0-percent MoM increase in deliveries for the Japanese brand’s compact crossover SUV, and therefore pushed it up the ranks by one, from seventh to sixth, while the CR-V’s February 2020 sales figure saw its YoY growth-rate increase by a steadier 4.3-percent trajectory.

The CR-V’s upward jump through the rankings resulted in the Nissan Rogue falling a place from sixth to seventh, but the latter model’s identical MoM deliveries of 2,950 units, representing zero percent change, makes us suspect that the data was compromised like the top four mentioned earlier.

The Honda Civic’s sales total increased from January to February, however, from 1,703 units to 2,164, showing 27.1 percent more MoM deliveries, albeit a -32.7-percent decrease YoY, this highlighting the trend away from cars to crossover SUVs that we’ve been documenting over the past couple of years. Likewise, the 10th-place Toyota Corolla, which pulled in 1,925 new buyers last month compared to 1,595 in January, for a 20.7-percent increase in MoM sales, saw its YoY numbers plummet by -38.5 percent.

We skipped over the increasingly more popular Hyundai Kona to make that last point, which came ninth in February’s top-10 list, displacing the Mazda CX-5 that was ranked eighth in the prior month. This points to another trend toward shrinking crossover SUVs, the Kona slightly smaller than Hyundai’s Tucson, and a bit larger than the South Korean brand’s Venue; the latter model being part of a new micro-SUV segment effectually replacing subcompact hatchbacks like Hyundai’s Accent, a model that’s no longer available in North America.
