Not since December of last year had the CR-V led Canada’s SUV/crossover market. (It’s the traditional favourite in the United States.) Through the first eleven months of 2014, the CR-V trails the second-ranked Toyota RAV4 by 934 units; the top-ranked Escape by 15,803. 

This category is more competitive in Canada than it is in the U.S., however, despite what the Escape may cause to appear otherwise. It also accounts for a larger percentage of Canadian sales than U.S. sales: 19% in Canada; 15% in the United States. 

Yet while the top five contenders earn 54% of the segment’s sales in the U.S., they own 51% of the Canadian category. In the U.S., the class leader sells  25 times more often than the basement-dwelling Mitsubishi Outlander. But in Canada, the top-ranked Escape sells only 10 times more often than that last-place Outlander.

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.
