The best deals on Canada’s most popular vehicles

DEALS OF THE WEEK

The best deals on Canada's most popular vehicles

Sales growth continues to be fuelled by the popularity of SUVs and CUVs

New vehicle sales in Canada are continuing to set records with more than 181,000 units sold last month, making it the best July ever recorded. This underscores a divergence between the automotive markets in Canada and the United States. While new vehicle sales in Canada are up by 5 per cent year-to-date, sales volumes are down by 3 per cent in the U.S. over the same period, with year-over-year declines in each of the last five months.

Sales growth in Canada continues to be fuelled primarily by the popularity of sport and crossover utility vehicles, which account for approximately one out of every four vehicles sold. The pickup truck segment also continues to see steady sales growth, with the Ford F-series retaining its crown as Canada's best-selling vehicle.

We've featured our favourite offers this week, highlighting some of Canada's most popular vehicles. If you don't find an offer that suits you, be sure to check out the new Globe Drive Build and Price Tool to see the latest incentives and discounts on any new car, truck or SUV.
