June 2014 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 86 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - Every SUV Ranked

2012 Honda CR-V Touring
With new contenders from Porsche and Lincoln, established players like the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V selling better this year than they did last year, and traditionalists like the Jeep Wrangler and Chevrolet Tahoe outperforming 2013's half-year pace, Canada's utility vehicle market is growing.

Fast.

Just not so fast in June. Sales of these 86 vehicles were up just 2% in June 2014 but the category has risen 12% over the course of the last six months. SUVs and crossovers accounted for 29.6% of all new vehicle sales in the first half of 2013; 32.3% during the first half of 2014. 

Sales of pickup trucks are down. Sales of commercial vans are only a hair better than level. Car sales have decreased. And yet Canadians registered more new vehicles in 2014's first half than they have at any point in the industry's history, including last year's record year.

Dealers thank SUVs and crossovers. Consider these two bits of interesting evidence, besides the exhaustive numbers below. 

In 2005, Honda Canada sold 15,976 CR-Vs, but Accord sales, at 24,115 units, were 51% stronger. This year, through only six months, Honda has already sold 16,774 copies of Canada's second-best-selling SUV/crossover, and the CR-V sells 89% more frequently than the Accord. 

But the CR-V isn't a traditional SUV, you say? (Not that there are that many left, regardless.) Jeep, which builds a handful of cute-utes but some tremendously capable utility vehicles, as well, has already sold more vehicles in 2014 than in all of 2004, 2005, 2006, or 2009. 

There were important improvements introduced late last year in the GCBC's rankings of all new vehicles. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increases/decreases from last year. As a result, we now include vehicles like the Suzuki Grand Vitara and Jeep Liberty, nameplates which collected sales during the first six months 2014 but not during the same period one year later.

º Land Cruiser is a commercial vehicle in Canada. 
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole.
