July 2013 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 86 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


2014 Acura MDX Elite
GCBC Tested The 29th-Ranked Acura 
MDX For Two Weeks This Summer

While the Canadian auto industry reported collective gains of 3% through July 2013, sales of SUVs and crossovers rose 6%. That equals nearly 18,000 extra units in seven months in a market which generated 29,000 more sales than in the same period of 2012.

86 SUV and crossover nameplates accounted for 30% of the overall new vehicle market between January and July. The five best-selling members of the fleet – Escape, CR-V, RAV4, Journey, and Santa Fe Sport – attracted 31% of all SUV/CUV customers. Sales of the segment-leading Ford Escape are up 6% this year, although Escape volume tumbled 20% in July. It was still easily Canada’s favourite utility vehicle last month. 

2014 Mazda CX-5 GT
GCBC Also Spent Time In Mazda’s
9th-Ranked CX-5 Earlier This Year

Ford sells five different utility vehicles, eight  including Lincoln’s trio. Together, they account for 28% of Ford Motor Company’s Canadian sales. (Ford’s F-Series brings in 42% of the company’s Canadian volume.) Between the Jeep brand and Dodge’s two three-row utilities, 28% of Chrysler Canada’s volume is SUV-derived. GM relies on SUVs and crossovers for 26% of the company’s Canadian sales. 

Think Detroit’s heavy on sport-utes? Take a look at premium brands: Acura (64%), BMW (45%), Infiniti (69%), Lexus (54%), Mercedes-Benz (43%), and Volvo (48%). 

These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs by July volume by clicking the July 2013 column header, or you can rank SUVs by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header. Just remember, the list is horizontally flipped from the norm: YTD on the left, monthly data on the right.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
