Canada's small SUV/CUV market didn't grow at a furious rate in September 2013 as numerous high-volume contenders posted year-over-year declines. 

Seven nameplates which accounted for 48.5% of the segment's September sales - Equinox, Journey, Escape, Terrain, CR-V, Tucson, Outlander - posted losses measuring between 9% and 34%. 

The Ford Escape continued to be Canada's best-selling small crossover and Canada's best-selling utility vehicle overall despite its reported 10% slide. 


The Escape is seen, not incorrectly, to be Canada's dominant small crossover, but it's worth noting that 84% of the category's buyers chose something other than the Escape in September and 85% of the category's buyers have opted for a vehicle other than the Escape during the first three quarters of 2013. 

No rival sells in numbers that even approach the figures achieved by Ford Canada's second-ranked vehicle, but many of the Escape's competitors are very, very successful models. Nine of Canada's 30 best-selling vehicles are displayed in the first table below; ten are shown in this post.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank small SUVs and crossovers any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

^ not including 344 Santa Fe XL sales (2291 YTD) which are shown exclusively in the midsize SUV category.
GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Santa Fe and Sorento listed with midsize SUVs - they're stuck in between in terms of size - as well as vehicles like the Wrangler and Xterra listed both here and there. The Buick Encore and Subaru XV Crosstrek and their gang are also listed with mainstream cars, because they're sitting on a fence between SUVs and traditional passenger cars. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
