MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) welcomes fall with a sharp uptick in sales, setting a new milestone for September sales with results up 11.5 percent and 5,139 units retailed. The end of the third quarter also marked the Japanese automaker's third highest month of sales ever. Exuberant year-to-date sales of 40,976 units put Subaru in an optimal position to overtake 2016's annual sales record of 50,190 units.  

It was a record-breaking September nationwide and the highest sales ever in Ontario.  The western region was up 14.2 percent, Ontario rose 11.7 percent, Quebec increased 9.6 percent and the Atlantic region was 8.5 percent above last September.   

Subaru's small crossover, the Crosstrek, significantly bolstered sales, celebrating its best month ever with results up 63.6 percent and 1,479 units retailed over the same period last year. Impreza sales also rose in September with a record 965 units retailed, an increase of 41.7% over last September. Subaru's performance sedans, the WRX and WRX STI, enjoyed a record-breaking month with 431 units sold, an increase of 18.1 percent.

These core values appeal to more and more Canadians."
