The 10 most popular new vehicles you bought last year
Despite continuing talk of economic doom and gloom, 2012 was the second best year ever for new passenger car and truck sales in Canada. In total, 1,675,675* new vehicles were sold last year — that’s up 5.7 per cent over 2011 and the most vehicles sold since a record 1.7 million in 2002.
Industry analysts are attributing last year’s near-record sales to intense competition in showroom thanks to aggressive manufacturer purchase incentives and financing options. And with such a banner year, it’s no surprise that some of the most popular models last year remained so this year. Nine out of the top 10 bestselling vehicles from 2011 returned to the 2012 list.
