Midsize SUV Sales In Canada – November 2015 YTD


2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport red

Canadian sales of the Honda Pilot increased on a year-over-year basis for an eighth consecutive month in November 2015, more than doubling its November total to 907 units last month. 

This wasn’t enough to make the Pilot the best-selling three-row crossover in Canada, but after ranking fifth in November 2014, the Pilot ranked third in November 2015.

Ford sells more copies of its three-row Explorer than any other utility vehicle in Canada. Explorer sales likewise more than doubled in November. Toyota Highlander volume jumped 24% to 997 units last month, well back of the Explorer but 90 sales ahead of its chief compatriot rival.

In the mix with all these three-row crossovers are two-row utility vehicles that are typically larger than true compact SUVs/CUVs but not significantly more costly. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is hugely popular in Canada, outselling its Santa Fe XL sibling by nearly four-to-one.

Though not in November, Ford Canada typically sells more two-row Edges than three-row Explorers. 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, not as affordable as the Santa Fe Sport and Edge, similarly sells more strongly than most three-row utilities listed here, although Grand Cherokee volume has fallen sharply in Canada this year. Nissan is currently selling more two-row Muranos than three-row Pathfinders, as well.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Wrangler and Xterra listed with small SUVs, too, and the Subaru Outback shown with mainstream cars… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
