Top 5 Best-Selling SUVs And Crossovers In Canada In 2014


Canada’s four best-selling utility vehicles all set sales records in calendar year 2014, crushing in some cases the records they’d set just one year ago. The fifth-ranked Hyundai Santa Fe Sport? It came within a scant 302 units of breaking the Canadian sales record it set in 2010.

The best-selling SUV in Canada, Ford’s Escape, set a sales record in 2013 but ended 2014 with an additional 7057 sales. The Honda CR-V ended the year on a high note, outselling all other Hondas – including the oh-so-Canadian Civic – in both November and December. 

Not that the CR-V and RAV4 aren’t Canadian vehicles themselves. Sold by Japanese companies, the Honda and Toyota are built in Alliston, Ontario, and Woodstock, Ontario, respectively.

GCBC will be publishing more extensive lists for Canada’s best-selling SUVs, cars, and all vehicle categories when more figures become available. Complete pickup truck sales data has already been released. Below, Canada’s five best-selling SUVs and crossovers in 2014.

    Interesting how the Chrysler products were number #1 and #2 despite Consumer Reports listing them among the least reliable vehicles for so long. Makes you wonder what buyers' decision-making process really is because they aren't that less expensive than the Odyssey or Sienna.
