The RAV4's record was notable, nevertheless, as the Toyota now leads Honda's previously second-ranked CR-V on year-to-date terms. 

The RAV4 has been an essential part of the Toyota brand's Canadian growth of late. In September, Toyota sales grew 7.7%. Non-RAV4 Toyotas, however, were actually down 3.1%.

At the Ford brand, meanwhile, Canadian sales increased 4.7% in September 2014. But non-Escape models were up by just 0.5%.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee - truly not midsize inside - replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.

    "During a month in which Toyota Canada sold more than 4000 Escapes for the first time ever, Ford Canada sold more than 5000 Escapes for the fifth consecutive month. "

    I thought Toyota's small SUV was called "RAV4" not "Escape" - Ford probably has a copyright on that name? :)

    Just teasing .... I've always wondered how much it must irk GM that the Escape outsells, by almost 2 to 1, the Equinox and Terrain COMBINED. You'd have to think they are furiously working on a new product to counter the Escape ......

  2. Something tells us they weren't able to sell that many pre-owned Escapes at Toyota showrooms in Canada last month, and they surely weren't selling new ones.
