January 2016 Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 94 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - Every SUV Ranked

Canadian sales of SUVs and crossovers exploded with a 22% year-over-year improvement to nearly 43,000 units in January 2016, equal to four out of every ten new vehicles sold in the first month of the year.

Cars are fading, earning 9200 fewer sales than the SUV/crossover sector in Canada in January 2016. SUVs, led by the Toyota RAV4 for a second consecutive January, added 7613 sales to the industry's ledger in the lowest-volume month of the year.

Yes, January is when Canadians simply don't turn up to new vehicle showrooms. Yet in 2016, January sales across the industry soared to a 15-year high. Why? Well, you guessed it, because they wanted more utility vehicles.

1025 more Jeep Cherokees this January than last. 504 more Hyundai Tucsons. 416 more Nissan Muranos. 524 more Mercedes-Benz SUVs.

Aside from SUVs and crossovers, Canadian sales of new vehicles rose just 3% last month largely on the strength of pickup trucks, which jumped 21%. But taking utility vehicles into account, the industry surged 10%. 

Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by January 2016 volume by clicking the January 2016 column header – which will give you the same results – or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. 

Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you're on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function. This list of SUVs and crossovers now includes the Subaru Outback and Crosstrek as well as Toyota's Venza – they're no longer linked with cars on GCBC.

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.
