* UPDATED – See the Top 15 groups, Top 35 brands and Top 256 All-models *

After reaching record heights both in 2013 and 2014, the Canadian new car market continues on its incredible run in January: up another 3% year-on-year to 99,160 registrations. FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) spectacularly takes the lead of the groups ranking with 18.2% share above Ford Motor Co. (14.7%), General Motors (11.7%), Toyota (11.6%) and Hyundai-Kia (10.7%). Brand-wise, Ford (14.4%) and Toyota (10.2%) are head and shoulders above the competition, with Hyundai (6.9%), Honda (6.6%), Ram up 10% to #5 and Nissan up 15% to #6 following. Notice also GMC and Volkswagen up 12%, Jeep and Subaru up 14%, Cadillac up 22%, Porsche up 24%, Audi up 26% and Chrysler and Lexus both up an outstanding 39%.

Dodge Grand Caravan Canada January 2015. Picture courtesy motortrend.comSwan song: the Dodge Grand Caravan is #3 but will see no Model Year 2016.

Model-wise, the Ford F-Series starts the year with a bang, posting a 15% year-on-year increase to 7,847 sales while the Ram Pickup also improves in 2nd place at +7% and 5,921 deliveries. In fact, only one nameplate in the Top 12 (the Honda Civic) loses ground year-on-year. The Dodge Grand Caravan, starting to feel the benefits of discounted prices ahead of its termination launch later this year, lands on the podium for only the 2nd time in the past 29 months at #3 (+23%), the Hyundai Elantra is the best-selling passenger car in the country this month at #4 (+15%), the GMC Sierra (#5) and Toyota RAV4 (#6) hit rare Canadian heights and the Ford Escape is up a flamboyant 55% on January 2014 at #7.

Toyota Sienna Canada January 2015. Picture courtesy motortrend.comCanadian Toyota Sienna sales are up 36% year-on-year in January.

Just outside the Top 10, the Nissan Rogue improves its best-ever Canadian ranking to #11 (previous best: #13 one year ago), the Honda CR-V is down 9 spots on December but up 30% year-on-year to #12, the VW Golf is up a spectacular 221% to #19 thanks to the new generation, the Jeep Wrangler up 46% to #20, Kia Sorento up 22% to #21, Toyota Camry up 61% to #23, the Honda Fit triples its sales year-on-year to #24 and the Toyota Sienna is up 36% to #26.

Lexus NX Canada January 2015. Picture courtesy of motortrend.comThe Lexus NX is up to #65 this month in Canada.

Further down, the Nissan Micra is up to a record #32 with 679 sales, the Nissan Murano is up 4-fold on January 2014 to #44 and the Lexus NX cracks the Canadian Top 100 for the first time, and by a large margin: up 37 spots on December – which was its first month of sale here – directly to #65 with 380 units sold.
