Top 251 Best-Selling Vehicles In Canada - May 2012 YTD - Every Vehicle Ranked - GOOD CAR BAD CAR

When I lived in Ontario, I did not see much difference between what was on the roads of Toronto or Buffalo. Except a few Mercedes B class vehicles which aren't sold in the US.

I think it is very, very similar to what you see in the U.S.

Generally though in Canada you will see slightly smaller vehicle sizes, and American vehicles have a slightly smaller market share in Canada as well I'd say.

As gas prices are $1.40 a liter the smaller economical 4cyl. are quite popular. Toyotas,Hondas,Hyundais etc.
A typical montreal street scene probably at rush hour going through Turcot Yards expressway.

Only a few Canadians are fortunate enough to have soft-topped Miatas!

I imagine they are basically the same as American cars, except the large numbers in the speedometers measure kilometers per hour instead of miles per hour. God bless.

Success does have its rewards in being able to afford decadent little mid life crisis machines.
