Top 10 selling cars and vehicles in 2014

OurWindsor.Ca

From the doldrums of 2008 when the economy took a nose dive and all the major automotive manufacturers – especially General Motors and Chrysler – took a major hit, 2014 saw an overall banner year in sales. 2014 stared down the economy – and drove right over it.

For the 17th consecutive year, Honda Canada saw its popular Alliston, Ontario-built Civic line as the top selling car in the country – with 66,057 units sold representing an increase of 3.1% from 2013.

Here are the 10 top selling cars sold in Canada in 2014.

 

In the truck/SUV segment, the top 5 selling vehicles were all North American.

All told, 763,792 passenger cars were sold during 2014 – slightly down from 2013 by 0.1%. The biggest increases, by category, were seen in subcompact and surprisingly in luxury, luxury high and luxury sport with a decline for intermediate sized cars.

Of the top 5 cars, four were produced by Asian manufacturers – Honda and Hyundai.

Canada has been having a love affair with pick-up trucks for years; in fact, the best-selling pick-up in Canada for the 49th consecutive year was Ford’s F-150. For the fifth consecutive year, sales of the almost ubiquitous F-150 made it the best-selling vehicle in Canada with a total of 126,277 units sold – 3.2% more than the previous year!

A record number of light trucks and sport utility vehicles were sold in Canada in 2014 with 1,087,581 units accounting for 58.7 percent of the market which is also a new record share. In the truck/SUV segment, the top 5 selling vehicles were all North American.

Ford with the top-selling light pick-up and SUV, the Ford Escape, Ram (Chrysler) finished 2nd to the F-150 almost 40,000 units less, but with a presentable overall increase from 2013 of 10.3%.

The once mighty minivan, practically invented by Chrysler, finished 4th – showing an increase of more than 10% from 2013. A General Motors pick-up, the GMC Sierra, rounded things up with sales just over 48,000 units – again, an increase of 2.4% over last year.

Ford was the best-selling automaker in Canada for the fifth consecutive year, recording their best overall sales as a company in this country since 1997.

What's in store for the future? Who can read that crystal ball? We'll see if the recent reductions in gas prices stimulate old memories of thirsty full-size SUVs.
