January 2015 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 88 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


2015 Dodge Journey red
After climbing by an average of 15%, year-over-year, in 2014’s twelve months – and 15% in December – Canadian sales of SUVs and crossovers increased much more slowly in January 2015.
The first month of the year saw the slowest pace of growth since June of last year, when utility vehicle volume moved up just 2.1%.

What’s to blame for the degrading expansion? Start with Canada’s typical best-selling utility vehicle, the Ford Escape. Sales of the Escape slid 5% in January, a drop of 122 units. Dodge Journey sales tumbled by 750 units, year-over-year. The 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th-best-selling nameplates all suffered decreased January sales.

But again, overall volume did increase. Start with the best-selling Toyota RAV4’s 16% jump. The Honda CR-V, Canada’s top-selling utility vehicle in November and December, jumped 30%, a gain of 426 units.

Nevertheless, because the overall Canadian auto industry grew at a faster rate than the market for SUVs and crossovers, the share of the market owned by utility vehicle sales slid to 34.1% from 34.5% one year ago.

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.
