But the RAV4 is Canada’s second-best-selling utility vehicle, not the first. Ford Escape sales slid 5% in October 2014, but sales are up 17% this year. The Escape outsold the RAV4 by a much smaller margin this October than last – 777 units compared with 1769 a year ago – but its dominance was not as all-consuming last month than it has so often been.

Regardless, it’s the category’s overall sales figures which impress the most. Sales of Escape/RAV4/CR-V-class SUVs shot up 17% last month in an overall SUV/crossover market which rose 15%. They accounted for nearly one out of every five Canadian new vehicle sales last month, more than one out of every five if their six smaller, more car-like alternatives and a trio of true off-roaders are taken into consideration.

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.
