Canada 2008: Honda Civic takes the lead

Similarly to the US market, huge petrol price increases are boosting sales of small cars to the detriment of pick-ups. For the first time in years the Ford F-Series is not the best-selling vehicle in Canada, the title going to the Honda Civic. It sold 61,712 units over the first 9 months of 2008, reaching a 4.7% share vs. 4.2% and 54,799 units for the Ford.

The Toyota Corolla jumps 4 spots to #3 with 48,307 sales (3.7%) ahead of the Mazda3 (3.1%) and Toyota Yaris (2.7%). The Dodge Caravan drops to #7 at 31,582 sales (2.3%) in spite of the new generation going on sale. Other great performances include the Hyundai Accent at #11 and the Chevrolet Malibu at #24 (both at +24 spots).
