Although Canada’s perennially top-selling SUV, the Ford Escape, has lost a fair chunk of its market share in 2015, the category which it leads is collecting an ever-larger portion of the Canadian auto industry’s monthly sales volume.

Through the first 10 months of 2015, SUVs and crossovers accounted for 35.5% of the new vehicles sold in Canada. In November, that figure rose to 40.1%, an increase compared with November 2014 of five percentage points.

Many of Canada’s top sellers are growing faster than the segment as a whole. The second-ranked Toyota RAV4 is up 15.5% this year in a category that’s grown 12.7%. Yes, the RAV4, one of the more established small crossovers, is still gaining massive amounts of ground.

The Nissan Rogue, Jeep Cherokee, Hyundai Tucson, and Ford Explorer? They’re all outpacing the SUV/CUV sector, as are the Nissan Murano and Honda Pilot.

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.
