Net sales are the total amount of money a company brings in, accounting for any redemptions investors made to take out money from their investment funds. But these nine affordable, efficient, and at least somewhat available cars didn’t merely produce a modest uptick; they turned 2021’s first-quarter share of the car market — 21 per cent — into a 31-per-cent grab.

In comparison, sales in 2022 have steadily declined with just $13. By 2015, Mazda was no longer able to sell 40,000 3s annually. By pre-pandemic 2019, Mazda Canada’s total 3 volume was down to only 21,276 units. In other words, don’t interpret 2022’s first-quarter increase to mean the 3 is back.05-billion in redemptions, compared with $272-million in sales in March, 2022. It led to about $36 billion US in losses.

It’s not, at least not at the level to which we were accustomed. But in an unhealthy market that has Toyota Corolla sales down 34 per cent and the Volkswagen Jetta down 86 per cent, the 3’s 16-per-cent uptick is a welcome turnaround for Mazda.

Article content Chevrolet Malibu: 873, up 16 per cent While it’s true General Motors is mostly out of the car business in North America, the company hasn’t completely exited. Cadillac’s still making a faltering go of it, and Chevrolet is still selling sports cars and, yes, even Malibus.

In fact, nearly 60 per cent of the cars built by GM during the early part of 2022 were Malibus.5 per cent, to $310-billion, as of April 30. Of Canadian midsize car sales in 2022’s first-quarter, 16 per cent were Malibus, up from 11 per cent a year ago. Subaru Impreza: 839, up 22 per cent Rewind a decade. In 2012, what was Subaru Canada’s best-selling car? The Impreza. Equity ETFs brought in the highest sales of $533-million, followed by bond ETFs with $322-million in sales. At 11,212 units, the Impreza ended 2012 as Subaru Canada’s best-selling car for the last time, generating over one-third of the company’s sales.

Now Subaru’s top seller is the tall hatch spawned by the Impreza: the Crosstrek.

Not a subcompact crossover.5 per cent of the category’s starting assets.

Not an in-demand minivan. Not a hyped-up electric. No, Kia’s best-selling vehicle in 2022’s first-quarter is the Forte, a compact sedan/hatch lineup.. Kia Canada has added 551 Forte sales during the first three months of the year at a time when the brand’s poorly-stocked SUVs are down by more than a fifth, a loss of more than 2,200 sales. Hyundai Elantra: 5,869, up 26 per cent Not since 2016 has the Hyundai Elantra ended a year as Canada’s second-best-selling car.

Yet through the first-quarter of 2022, that’s where the Elantra stands: ahead of the Toyota Corolla but behind the Honda Civic. The seventh-gen Elantra was introduced for the 2021 model year. The styling may seem divisive, but that hasn’t stopped the Elantra from grabbing heaps of extra market share. Advertisement 6 This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. Article content Hyundai Sonata: 880, up 38 per cent It’s not just the Elantra.

Hyundai’s midsize sedan has also ratcheted up its sales totals in early 2022. Granted, Hyundai’s not selling Sonatas like it’s 2011 — Hyundai was moving nearly 1,400 per month when the sixth-gen car was still fresh. Now in its eighth iteration, Hyundai has grown its market share to 16 per cent in 2022, up from 9 per cent a year ago and actually slightly better than 2011, as well. Kia Soul: 1,891, up 58 per cent Kia dealers who can’t get their hands on boxy Tellurides (notorious for additional dealer markups south of the border) are able to get their hands on boxy Souls. Okay, maybe they’re going after slightly different corners of the market.

But the Soul’s recent resurgence has been a key factor in Kia Canada’s relatively modest 6-per-cent downturn in 2022’s first-quarter. Kia’s added 693 sales to the Soul’s first-quarter ledger this year. Advertisement 7 This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. Article content Nissan Altima: 649, up 98 per cent To be fair, the Altima isn’t priced under $30,000. Its official MSRP is a hair above at $30,198.

The Altima certainly hits the fuel efficiency target at 6.5 L/100 km on the highway. Canada’s midsize leaders struggled in 2022’s first-quarter — the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord combined to lose more than 300 sales per month. Altima volume, on the other hand, was twice as strong as it was at the start of 2021. Mitsubishi Mirage ES beneath the Sudbury Superstack Photo by Elliot Alder Mitsubishi Mirage: 406, up 111 per cent Often mocked and ridiculed for its third-world rental car vibes, the Mitsubishi Mirage has one key element working in its favour: disappearing competitors.

Not only are conventional subcompacts such as the Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent, and Chevrolet Sonic off the market, so too are the Mirage’s more direct rivals. The Nissan Micra called it quits in 2019 and GM pulled the plug on the Spark earlier this year. Canadians looking for a sub-$15K new car now have one option: the Mitsubishi Mirage.
