Deals of the Week

Record new vehicle sales mean big deals for customers

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Canadian auto makers experiencing significant growth

New vehicle sales in Canada have shown no signs of slowing down, even though headwinds have been forming in the United States, where volumes have declined for four straight months. Over one million new vehicles were sold in the first six months of 2017 and over 200,000 in June alone. Both milestones represent all-time records for the Canadian market. If these trends continue, 2017 will likely mark the eighth consecutive year of sales growth since the last trough reached during the great recession in 2009.

While numerous auto makers are experiencing significant growth, here are the top 10 major brands with the strongest showing in June, showing units sold and year-over-year growth:

  1. Lexus – 2,374 (+36%)
  2. Volkswagen – 6,624 (+30%)
  3. Infiniti – 1,202 (+25%)
  4. Audi – 3,857 (+24%)
  5. Lincoln – 902 (+21%)
  6. Jaguar – 450 (+18%)
  7. Honda – 17,423 (+14%)
  8. Ford – 31,856 (+14%)
  9. Mercedes-Benz – 5,026 (+13%)
  10. Acura – 1,835 (+12%)
