May 2016 was the Toyota RAV4's fourth month in the last five as Canada's top-selling SUV/crossover thanks to a 15% year-over-year sales increase in a segment which grew 5%.

Canada SUV/Crossover Sales By Model - May 2016 YTD

Through the first five months of 2016, SUV/crossover sales are up 16% in Canada, triple the rate of growth achieved by the industry on the whole. An abbreviated auto sales calendar – "May" didn't begin until May 3 – caused a number of stable models to appear as though they're on the downswing in May 2016: Rogue, CR-V, Cherokee, Equinox, Forester, Highlander.

But many newer utility vehicles also posted massive May 2016 gains. Hyundai Tucson sales jumped 82% to 2521 units, the Tucson's best month ever. Its partner, the Kia Sportage, jumped 107% to 1659 units, good enough for 13th among utility vehicles in May. Combined, the Tucson/Sportage platform produced 4180 Canadian sales in May 2016.
