Top 25 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – 2015 Year End


2016 Hyundai Tucson
The Ford Escape earned another first-place finish in Canada’s annual SUV/crossover sales race despite suffering a 9% volume loss over the course of 2015. 
One year ago, the Escape finished 2014 14,514 sales ahead of the second-ranked Honda CR-V – both utility vehicles posted record Canadian sales. But in 2015, the Toyota RAV4 surged forward with a 15% gain and came within a still distant 5480 sales of catching the Escape. Maybe next year.

The Escape is one of three Fords in 2015’s top 25: the Edge ranked 11th despite falling 8%; the Explorer ranked 13th with a 23% jump and topped all other three-row SUVs and crossovers.

The top 25 also hosted four Jeeps and a Dodge, three Toyotas, three Hondas, three Nissans, two Hyundais and one Kia, and two GM products. The Nissan Murano posted the biggest percentage gains, rising 115% compared with 2014. The Jeep Cherokee, Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Patriot, and Honda Pilot all produced gans of at least 30%.
