10 Best-Selling Cars of 2018 in Canada

As we look at our 10 best-selling cars of 2018 in Canada list, we find only two models, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, that saw sales increase year over year.

The rest registered a drop in units sold, often by double digits. This wasn’t a good year for cars, not by a long shot.

The list doesn’t include sales numbers for December but we’d be surprised if the last month’s sales did anything to change the situation. That said, 2018 wasn’t a good year for the automotive industry overall. Overall sales were down 2.3% as of December 1 with passengers cars like the ones on this list accounting for a 9.6% drop in sales.

As for the best-selling cars themselves, well there’s no real change at the top. The Honda Civic still dominated the Canadian market with over 66,000 units sold. Sales have decreased slightly compared to last year (-0.8%), but it was still enough to beat the Corolla by roughly 19,000 units.

And now, let’s take a look at the 10 best-selling cars in 2018 in Canada.

Honda Civic – 66,932 Units Sold (-0.81%)
