August 2014 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 88 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - Every SUV Ranked

2014 Toyota Highlander
Canada's SUV and crossover market was once again booming in August 2014, the second consecutive month of extreme growth after the expansion slowed somewhat in June. Ford added 920 sales with the best-selling Escape alone, and all five of August's top sellers posted improved year-over-year volume.

Total SUV/crossover sales grew 19% in August and are up 14% through the first eight months of 2014. In an industry that's posted record auto sales, nearly 56,000 extra over the course of eight months, utility vehicle sales are up by more than 49,000 units.

The category's 20 top candidates, Escape through Pathfinder, generate 69% of all SUV/crossover sales in Canada this year, on par with the market share afforded to the 20 top sellers at this stage one year ago.

New to these rankings this month are the Audi Q3, Audi's third-best-selling model in August. The Q3 tied with the BMW X5 as Canada's 46th-best-selling utility vehicle last month, well back of the premium brand-leading Q5. But the Q3 did sell 86% more copies than the Q7, which tells you something about the direction the market is willingly heading.

There were exciting 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 Hyundai Veracruz and Jeep Liberty, nameplates which collected sales during the first eight months 2014 but not during the same period one year later. 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 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by August volume by clicking the August 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header.

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.

  1. I have never understood how Volvo does fare so badly in Canada. In theory, it should be Volvo country: Cold, liberal, outdoorsy. That's Volvo attributes all across the world. Why not here?
