2009’S TOP 5 BEST-SELLING SUVs IN CANADA


Canadians flock to the Ford Escape as though the small Ford SUV comes with free tickets to an NHL Stanley Cup playoffs game. In truth, if everybody who bought a Ford Escape in 2009 showed up to any of the NHL’s six Canadian arenas, there wouldn’t be enough space to hold ’em all. The next-best seller in Canada from last year was more than 11,000 sales behind, and America’s best-selling SUV sold at just half the rate of the Ford Escape.

Ford generates activity in the Escape section of their showrooms with attractive pricing and a vehicle that was, when it debuted, superior dynamically. That may not be the case anymore, but the Escape isn’t as antiquated a vehicle as many decade-old designs. Are there better options for Canadian cute-ute buyers? Oh yeah; whether it be the Hyundai Santa fe, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, or the Subaru Forester. You can still count on huge Ford Escape sales next year, however.
