In 2018, Canada experienced the second highest year in terms of volume in Canadian auto history. When it comes to popular vehicles, there were certainly some stand-out favorites you’re likely to have seen cruising through Maple Ridge, Burnaby, or Port Coquitlam. As your trusted North Vancouver area auto body shop and collision repair center, we pride ourselves on being familiar with the area’s most popular cars, so that we can be sure to provide quality service no matter your vehicle type. Below you can find some of Vancouver’s most popular cars.

Honda Civic

In 2018, the Honda Civic claimed over 12% of Canada’s overall vehicle sales, outselling the next best selling car by 41% and continuing its 21-year reign as Canada’s best selling car. The Civic’s HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response system is big draw, with its ability to automatically contact an operator who then forwards your location to first responders in the event of an accident. With further help from its sleek design, a staggering 69,000 Civics were sold last year, making it a stand-out as one of the county’s most consistently popular cars on the market.

Toyota Corolla

Ranked the second best selling vehicle in Canada last year, the 2019 Toyota Corolla boasts impressive standard safety features like smart-stop technology and lane departure alerts. The 1.8 litre, four-cylinder engine pumps 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft. of torque. Though it’s far out-sold by the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla sold just under 49,000 units last year, solidifying it as one of the area’s most popular passenger cars.

Hyundai Elantra

With nearly 42,000 sold in Canada last year, the Hyundai Elantra has solidified itself as one the most popular cars in the Vancouver area. Though it was once believed to be the car with the selling power to end the Civic’s ruling streak, it fell just short of the mark, but still remains a popular option. With an affordable starting price and a variety of trims and available options, it’s no surprise the Elantra makes an appearance on this list as one of the area’s most popular passenger cars.

Chevrolet Cruze

Currently enjoying year-over-year sales growth, the Chevrolet Cruze was Canada’s fourth-best selling passenger car in 2018. The Cruze is available in multiple trims with their own engine options. The 2019 Cruze LT gas option features WiFi capability, LED headlights, an available Bose audio system with nine speakers, and a teen driver mode safety feature. These features, along with its MSRP of $22,195, has helped land the Cruze among Vancouver’s most popular cars.


With an MSRP of $21,700 and a variety of available trims and features, the Mazda3 has grown to become one of Canada’s top five best selling passenger cars on the market. The Mazda3 GS boasts push-button start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and comes with standard safety features like advanced blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts. With additional options including a six-speaker audio system and a luxurious leather-wrapped steering wheel, it’s no wonder the Mazda3 is among the area’s best selling cars.
