There were four Jeeps in the top 20 in March 2015, from the sixth-ranked Cherokee to the 20th-ranked Patriot. Jeep’s partner brand, Dodge, also landed the Journey inside the top 10. Hyundai and Kia combined for a trio of top sellers. No other manufacturer combined for more than two placements.

The top-selling premium brand SUV or crossover in Canada in March was the 23rd-ranked Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The 24th-ranked, Canadian-built Lexus RX was shown in all-new, fourth-gen form at the New York auto show today. It definitely looks like a Lexus.

* Total Santa Fe Sport/Santa Fe XL: 3188 March sales, down 16%, and down 6% to 6794 in Q1.
Prefer to think of the Subaru Outback as an SUV/crossover, not a car? Its 946 March sales would place the Outback in 16th on this list.
