Automotive website autotrader.ca has released their 2012 3rd quarter “Top 10 Most Searched Vehicle” survey.

The survey shows in Ontario the Honda Civic was searched for 24.7 million times. The Acura TL and MDX, Honda Accord, Volkswagen Jetta, Mazda 3,  and Toyota Corolla were other popular rides.

In British Columbia, the Ford F-150 was the number one most sought-after vehicle.

In Alberta five of the top 10 searches were also for trucks.

Searches for imports were also prevalent throughout the Maritimes, with Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island all skewing heavily in favour of makes and models such as Hyundai’s Tucson, Honda’s Civic and Toyota’s Corolla.

“Canada is a large and diverse country, with each province and city having its own unique identity. It’s clear that this includes preference in vehicles, as Canadians have pretty eclectic taste when it comes to their cars,” said Ian Macdonald, Autotrader’s director of marketing.

“Having the most cars in one place and covering the whole of Canada, we pride ourselves on offering the largest selection of new and used cars to our customers, whether it’s trucks in Calgary, imports in Ontario, or anything in between,” he said.
