UPDATE 2-Automakers report January sales gains in Canada
(Rewrites throughout with final industry figures)
TORONTO Feb 3 (Reuters) - The top auto companies sold more vehicles in Canada last month than a year ago, according to industry data released on Tuesday, with Chrysler Canada leading the pack as the top-selling carmaker for January.
Sales were up 3.4 percent, with 99,051 cars and trucks sold in Canada, industry data showed.
"Overall, the market exhibited some surprising resilience," DesRosiers Automotive Consultants wrote in a note to clients, but cautioned about putting too much weight on January sales figures.
"We continue to believe that the market has room to grow in Canada, although we are most definitely in a period of high uncertainty."
