Among utility vehicles that come standard with a third row of seating, the Toyota Highlander continued its reign atop the Canadian leaderboard thanks to a 45% year-over-year increase, an improvement of 374 units. But there were big challenges to the Highlander in March. 

Unexpectedly, Dodge Durango sales shot up 270% to 1084 units. Over the two years prior to March 2016, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles averaged fewer than 300 monthly Durango sales.

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.
