Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - February 2015

2015 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid
Despite a sharp 14% year-over-year decline, the Ford Escape was Canada's best-selling utility vehicle in February 2015 after a three-month hiatus.

South of the border, Escape sales also declined in a fast-growing market, and the perennial number two (the Honda CR-V is the traditional U.S. leader) dropped to fifth place.

Yet even with fast-rising Toyota RAV4 volume and steadily growing sales of the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue, the Escape fended off its February challengers. Through two months - the slowest two months on the Canadian auto sales calendar - the Escape is a scant 39 units ahead of the Toyota.

Canada's leading three-row utility vehicle in February was the 15th-ranked Nissan Pathfinder, sales of which grew 30% to 702, 100 more than the Toyota Highlander achieved. Three vehicles which are available with third-row seating outsold the Pathfinder last month: Rogue, Journey, and Sorento. 

No premium brand SUV or crossover cracked the top 20 list in February. The leader among that group was the 24th-ranked Acura RDX (up 16% to 406), just six sales ahead of the Audi Q5 (down 17%) and 27 sales ahead of the Lexus RX (down 16%).

Outback? GCBC lists that vehicle with cars, but if you'd prefer to think of it as an SUV or crossover it would have ranked 15th in February 2015.
