Nearly eight out of every ten new vehicles sold in Canada are built in the NAFTA zone: Canada, United States, Mexico. But that doesn’t mean many truly imported vehicles aren’t hugely popular in Canada.

“Import” doesn’t mean what it used to, not now that Canada’s 18-time best-selling car, the Honda Civic, is established as a Canadian-made car. Canada’s two top-selling utility vehicles are both built in southern Ontario, as well, and they both wear Japanese badges. Canada’s top-selling German cars are built in Mexico and the most popular European luxury car is assembled in Alabama.

Import, for the purposes of this list, means cars that genuinely come from abroad, vehicles that are shipped to Canada having been built on the other sides of two oceans.
