November 2013 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 87 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


2013 Ford Escape

SUVs and crossovers attracted 33.5% of Canada’s new vehicle buyers in November 2013, up from 30.8% in November 2012. Through eleven months, Canadian sales of SUVs and crossovers are up 7.8%. Canada’s new vehicle market is up 6.5%. All utility vehicles are ranked in order of their year-to-date sales in the massive, sortable list below.

The Jeep Cherokee’s Jeep-leading 1285 November sales pushed the brand’s newest vehicle from the 85th position all the way up to 59th. With one real month of sales under its belt, the Cherokee has already generated greater Canadian volume than the Mazda CX-9 has all year, more than all but one of GM’s four full-size SUVs, more than the Nissan Xterra, too. 

2013 Toyota RAV4

The Cherokee isn’t the only utility vehicle currently available that wasn’t one year ago. The Chevrolet Trax is Canada’s 24th-best-selling utility vehicle. Its partner, the Buick Encore, ranks 38th, ahead of the Nissan Murano but behind the Cadillac SRX. The Hyundai Santa Fe XL is Canada’s 44th-best-selling utility vehicle. Including it in the Santa Fe Sport’s total would mean the most popular Hyundai utility vehicle nameplate would actually rank fourth, not fifth.

However, long-standing nameplates dominate the top of the SUV/CUV leaderboard. The top-selling Ford Escape leads the second-ranked Toyota RAV4 by 11,289 units through eleven months. Although sales of the Honda CR-V, Dodge Journey, Chevrolet Equinox, Jeep Wrangler, and Ford Edge have slid slightly in 2013, they were among Canada’s ten best-selling utility vehicles in 2012 (second, third, sixth, seventh, and eighth last year) and will be again in 2013.

2013 HONDA CR-V

There were exciting improvements introduced in last month’s rankings of vehicle sales. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increases/decreases from last year. As a result, we’ve also included vehicles like the Mitsubishi Endeavor and Kia Borrego, nameplates which collected sales in 2012 but not this year. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs by November volume by clicking the November 2013 column header, or you can rank SUVs and crossovers 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.
