Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - March 2014

With a significant 16% year-over-year increase, the Ford Escape managed to stay ahead of the surging Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in March 2014's standings of Canada's best-selling SUVs and crossovers.

Combined, the two Santa Fe nameplates - Sport and XL - actually outsold the Escape by 11 units. Hyundai Canada kindly separates the sales figures for the two distinct Santa Fes; we thus see the Santa Fe Sport's 3369-unit performance alone.

Canada's second and third-best-selling SUVs through the first quarter of 2014 ranked third and fourth in March's results. CR-V sales jumped 12%, RAV4 sales slid 30% as the comparison with the early days of the fourth-generation RAV4 reflected poorly on Toyota Canada's 2014 results for the second consecutive month. 


Only five of Canada's 20 top-selling utility vehicles sold less frequently in March 2014 than in March 2013. (11 of Canada's top 20 cars recorded March declines.) In addition to the Santa Fe Sport's 50% jump, the Nissan Rogue, Chevrolet Equinox, Toyota Highlander, and Nissan Pathfinder all reported gains better than 50%. 

The Audi Q5 was the only premium brand utility vehicle to rank in the top 20. The Q5 is currently tied for the lead with the BMW 3-Series as Canada's top-selling premium vehicle through the first three months of 2014, although the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Lexus RX, and BMW X5 are all within 70 units of overtaking the leading duo.
