Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - December 2013

2014 Honda CR-V interior cargo
35% Of The Hondas Sold In Canada In December Were CR-Vs
For the first time since March and just the second time this year, the Ford Escape was not the best-selling SUV or crossover in Canada. December 2013 results didn't land the Toyota RAV4 in the top spot, however, as March's figures showed. This time it was the Honda CR-V's turn. 

Also unlike March, when the RAV4 pipped the Escape by 380 sales in a down month for the Ford, the doubling of CR-V volume helped the Honda to a 1041-unit victory during a month in which Escape sales were on the rise.

New vehicle sales in Canada grew 4% in December. New car sales rose, according to the Automotive News Data Center, were down 9.5%. Only five of Canada's top 20 best-selling utility vehicles sold less often this December than in December 2012. 14 sold at an above-average growth rate. Seven posted increases above 50%. Two, the best-selling CR-V and 20th-ranked Volkswagen Tiguan, sold more than twice as often in December 2013 as in December 2012.


The Jeep Cherokee ranked sixth among SUVs and crossovers in December. 2013's year end results won't show the kind of impact the Cherokee had late in the year, but Jeep brand sales figures went from being down 2% through the first ten months of the year to ending 2013 up 4%.
