2014 Year End Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 90 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


Canadian sales of SUVs and crossovers increased 15% in calendar year 2014, a 79,000-unit improvement compared with 2013.
2014 was a record year for auto sales in Canada, but the industry would have recorded much smaller gains in 2014 had it not been for the strength of the SUV/crossover sector. Had sales of these vehicles remained level, auto sales in Canada would have grown at a 2% clip, rather than the 6% growth rate achieved with SUVs and crossovers included.

• Canada Car Sales Rankings By Model – December & 2014 Year End

On its own, the Ford Escape, Canada’s best-selling utility vehicle, recorded more than 7000 extra sales in 2014. The Escape was Canada’s best-selling SUV in each of 2014’s first ten months but fell to the Honda CR-V in both November and December. 

In the final month of 2014, SUVs and crossovers combined to trail the car sector by fewer than 3800 sales. That 8% gap was much tighter than through the previous 11 months, when car sales were 28% stronger than SUV/crossover sales.

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.
