Infographic: In the mood for a new car

More than a quarter of Canucks are in the market, with one fifth looking to billboards to help them make a decision.


Canadians are thorough shoppers. They’re willing to put in an average of 6.8 hours of research and consideration when it comes to buying a car.

That’s more than the Polish and Americans, both of which rank 1st and 2nd when it comes to the number of country residents currently thinking about making a purchase, while Canada ranks below in 6th.

This is according to global data from throlling consumer study Touchpoints, in association with Reality Mine, which also state that about a quarter of Canucks are window shopping. However, only about 8% of the population think about their auto purchase on a daily basis.

And during their investigation, as many as 19% say they will look to billboards and other OOH media to help with their purchase consideration.
