By the standards of the first ten months of the year, the growth rate achieved by Canada's ever-growing SUV/crossover fleet was downright abysmal in November 2014.
Canadian SUV sales rose 15.6% through the end of October. But November volume was up "just" 8.6%. That's only five percentage points better than the growth of the industry as a whole. How discouraging.

We're kidding of course. Not about the actual numbers, but the sentiment. True, the year-over-year expansion of the utility vehicle sector in Canada wasn't quite as rapid as it was earlier in the year, but Canadians did buy/lease nearly 4000 more SUVs and crossovers in November 2014 than in November 2013. Much of that growth was achieved by the most popular members of the sector.
